About the exhibition “Glow Like That

Light is not only a natural phenomenon but also a product of technological advancement. It is an empty signifier awaiting a narrative; it is undefined, fuzzy at the edges. Fluid and amorphous, light therefore has endless possibilities. When interacting with light, certain kinds of surfaces take on an iridescent sheen or reflect their surroundings, producing a shimmering or radiant “glow”. Presented by K11 Art Foundation as the first contemporary art exhibition held in Victoria Dockside, Glow Like That features 16 artists and collectives from countries including China, the US, and Japan, showcasing an impressive array of paintings, video works, sculptures, and installations. While some of the works demonstrate the various forms of “glow” characteristic of this light-saturated era, others reveal their functions and symbolic significances in contemporary society.

Brimming with beautiful imagery associated with light, Glow Like That also echoes the spectacular harbour view that the exhibition space overlooks. From the vantage point of Glow Like That in Victoria Dockside, visitors will feast on the opulence of the gleam and glimmer of the city. The glistering waves of the harbour and the exhibition shine a light on each other, bolstering one another’s splendour and sparking ruminations on the relationship between light and everyday life.

Four Museums and a Hidden Collection : Curating the Public, Private and Liminal Space

The BA Programme in Cultural Management is going to presents a far-reaching and discursive public lecture on “Four Museums and a Hidden Collection: Curating the Public, Private and Liminal Space” delivered by Mr. Adrian George.

Date:25 March 2019 (Mon)

Time:17:00 – 18:30

A personal exploration through a twenty year curatorial career that spans working at one of the most important contemporary art museums in the world, to working for one of the largest collections of British art in the world, to making exhibitions in an iconic private museum that, at just 7 years old, is already one of the most visited destination museums in South East Asia.  Questioning the definition of ‘public’ and ‘private’ in the 21st century cultural sector as well as the influence of a rapidly expanding and evermore diluted global art world, this presentation will be both far-reaching and discursive.

每個人都有藝術和創作的潛能,欣賞藝術是每一個人的權利。 但是要進一步建立一個藝術共融的社會, 談何容易!
換另外一個角度去問 : 發現自己選擇的創作主題竟與合作對象大相逕庭,或者同一條藝術創作之路似乎出現了瓶頸。當一直堅持的事被推翻;當固有的思維即將被打破;當「藝術家」的身份被挑戰,是否要放下身段,重新審視「藝術」的定義?

時間:下午5:00 至6:30

Art and Museum Lecture Series featuring Dr. Michaela Pejčochová

Taking the middle way.

Early exhibitions of modern Chinese painting organised in Europe in the 1920s and 1930s

Date:14 January 2019 (Mon)

Time:1:30pm – 3:15pm

Venue:C5, T.C. Cheng Building, CUHK


The talk will introduce the first exhibitions of modern Chinese paintings in Europe, which were organised between the mid-1920s and the mid-1930s by Chinese artists settled in Europe, Chinese teachers and reformists Liu Haisu and Xu Beihong, and the Czech collector Vojtěch Chytil. During less than a decade, many European cultural centres in more than ten countries saw a large selection of modern Chinese ink painting and in a number of places, the exhibitions became a starting point of the subsequent formation of museum collections of this material. The talk will discuss both, the strategies of the organisers of these shows, and the impact on local art scenes and public collections. A comparison of different types of these exhibition projects will bring to light specific aspects of the official exhibitions organised by Liu Haisu and Xu Beihong, as well as those put together by the private collector Vojtěch Chytil.


A piece of China in Prague.

The Czech painter, teacher and collector Vojtěch Chytil and his collection of modern Chinese painting in the 1920s and 1930s

Date:17 January 2019 (Thur)

Time:5:30pm – 7:00pm

Venue:Lecture Theatre 4, Cheng Yu Tung Building, CUHK


Vojtěch Chytil belonged to the European enthusiasts, who traveled to the Far East in the inter-war period, settled in China and became enamoured with her culture and art. Being an artist himself, Chytil had a unique position among European lovers of Chinese art. During his tenure at the Beijing Art College in the 1920s, he befriended artists such as Qi Baishi, Chen Banding, and Xiao Sun, and subsequently formed one of the largest collections of their paintings in his time. He took his collection to Europe and showed it in more than twenty European capitals and cultural centres. The talk will discuss the unique situation that lead to the formation of Chytil’s collection, some of the most important artworks in his collection and its legacy after Chytil’s premature death in 1936. It will be lavishly illustrated with the masterpieces from the holdings of the National Gallery in Prague, as well as with old photographs and archival materials from a number of public and private collections.


About Michaela Pejčochová (貝米莎)

She has been working as a curator of the Chinese art collections at the National Gallery in Prague for almost 20 years and has published its unique collection of modern Chinese ink painting in 2008 as Masters of the 20th-Century Chinese Ink Painting from the Collections of the National Gallery in Prague. Most recently, she has completed a monograph focused on the activities of the Czech painter and collector Vojtěch Chytil (1896-1936), where his collection of Chinese, Japanese and Tibetan art is analysed in the context of the inter-war period collecting of Asian art in Europe. Besides modern Chinese art, she has published widely also on old Chinese painting and the theories of Chinese painting of the Song and Ming dynasties.

小島之上,海風吹散老人的白髮。 黎連壽口中哼著輕盈自在的漁歌:「大船拋住沱濘頭誒,舢舨送郎賴氏州呀,咪俾東風吹窒你妹娘裙尾呀,細魚投胎潡肚白呀,燈盞無油誒是黑岩 … … 」隨興變奏,調子重覆,與海浪聲載浮載沉。海上風物,生老病死,漁歌歌者唸唸有詞。塔門黎氏靠捕魚維生,漁歌自古口耳相傳,但現在已難覓知音。 黎伯生於戰前,與太太結婚六十餘年,是香港少數精通漁歌的水上人。子女無一從事漁業,也未曾經歷驚濤駭浪的生活,對父親的歌藝竟然未有所聞。
