Against the backdrop of the global pandemic and local political unrest, we were able to rise above the unprecedented challenges we faced in preparation of our graduate show this year. It has been our greatest desire to share and celebrate the fruition of our 2-year research and creative works to the public. We are grateful for our venue sponsor – Osage Art Foundation – for allowing us to make this happen at their renowned gallery space in the coming July. Also, a big thankyou to our all time supporter Professor Mayching Kao, without her generous Art Funds sponsorship, our show will not be as complete.
We are excited to announce “Make _ art Not War [T/F]” a group show of 4 MFA graduates from The Chinese University of Hong Kong: Iv Tsz Man Chan, Chang Yue Lam, Fung Hoi Shan and Wong Sze Wai. Our creative practices vary in different media, exploring themes ranging
from the problematic body, post-industrial society, human-animal relationships and the memory space, offering multiple layers of perspectives and possibilities of artistic creation.
Our show title is inspired by the famous 60s slogan “Make Love, Not War”. Presented with a twist – the dedication in art amidst chaos – we bring out the absurdity (or not) of our unwavering commitment towards art-making and our faith in its power.
