Hong Kong Visual Arts Yearbook was launched in 2000. Bilingual in Chinese and English, it is the most comprehensive annalistic toolbook for Hong Kong Visual Arts, with the aid of photos .
The Yearbook is financially supported by the Hong Kong Arts Development Council and published by the Department of Fine Arts, The Chinese University of Hong Kong. It is composed of two sections, “Essays” and “Chronicles”; the former is made up of essays by academic experts who draw comprehensive commentaries while focusing on selective local visual arts events; while the latter gathers and catalogues all types of visual arts events of the year. One is subjective observation and analysis on a broad scope, while the other is microscopic listing of objective data interdependent on as well as complementary to each other.
