Affordable Art Fair慶祝在港10週年，於2023年5月18日至21日在香港會議展覽中心再度舉行。隨著國際旅遊逐漸恢復，這場不容錯過的藝博會陣容鼎盛，將呈獻多元化的本地及國際畫廊和參展單位，並展示逾千件精心挑選的當代藝術作品。
Affordable Art Fair is celebrating its 10th anniversary in Hong Kong. The fair team invites visitors back to discover the joy of collecting art at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre from 18 to 21 May 2023. With the return of international travels, this unmissable edition will showcase an exciting and diverse line-up of galleries, artists and creative projects.
Why it matters:
為令此屆博覽會更豐富，藝博會提供一系列趣味和互動兼備的項目和活動，邀請入場人士親身參與。今年的「Young Talent Hong Kong」展覽項目由HKwalls策展，將聯同本地年輕及新晉藝術家於博覽會上展現本地藝術力量。「特別項目」將帶來大型裝置和藝術表演，以香港的歷史、藝術與文化為題，邀請了一眾藝術家展示他們對這座深受喜愛的城市的熱愛和情感。以教育為其核心價值之一，Affordable Art Fair也強調藝術教育的重要性，提供工作坊和導覽，以培養和激發年輕一代對藝術的熱愛。
This year, a wide array of programmes and projects will be presented as part of an interactive art journey. Young Talent Hong Kong, curated by HKwalls, spotlights works by passionate young and emerging local talented artists. Special Projects are set to bring along large-scale installations and art performances that pay homage to Hong Kong, inviting artists to showcase their love and passion for this much-loved city. With education as one of its core values, Affordable Art Fair also emphasises the importance of Art Education, bringing workshops and tours to foster and inspire young people to fall in love with art.
5 Hightlight Artists:
．Yuho Chang’s paintings are full of variety. From abstracts to inks, her versatility as a visual creator truly shines in the diversity of styles. Each painting features bold colors to convey and evoke a sense of emotion;
．Lingmuki is experienced in using different mediums, including oil painting, Chinese painting, watercolour drawing and digital drawing. Her artworks have been exhibited at art fairs and galleries worldwide. With her works being featured in various publications, Lingmuki has also been taking commission projects and collaborations from companies and individuals from all over the world;
．Sarah Tse brings an array of paradoxical patterns and images that evoke a delicate, nostalgic and often disturbing ambience to her drawings. Images of square robots, towering stacks of teacups, innocent woodland creatures, and sensuous blooming roses are omnipresent;
．Andre Tan’s work is often viewed in relation to the sensibilities of Pop Art and of reproduced images from pop culture, in the commercial style of advertising and mass communication, his artworks explore popular icons and cultural motifs under a bright colour palette, in a smorgasbord of patterning, layering and unlikely juxtapositions;
．Kin‘s work is distinctively cheerful and surrealistic, with a playful quality that is infectious. His art often features anthropomorphic animals and other worldly creatures in dreamlike settings that suggest a world beyond our own. There’s a sense of whimsy and wonder in his art that is both captivating and soothing.
