Debut of Curator-in-Residence Programme with exhibition of Lingnan maestro’s paintings
More than one hundred pieces of art and related exhibits of Gao Jianfu (1879-1951), the master who pioneered the Lingnan school of modern Chinese painting, will be on display at PolyU and mark the first public event of the 2021/22 Curator-in-Residence Programme.
Visitors to the exhibition – From Naturalism to Artistic Realm – will gain insight into how Master Gao’s artworks, lent by Mr Lai Ming and Ms Wong Wing-yin, were developed from sketches. These sketches and close-to-completed paintings are very valuable for comparison and study – they demonstrate how Gao started with sketches and drawings, and then transformed them into completed paintings that are innovative and creative.
The exhibition is curated by PolyU’s first Curator-in-Residence – Mr Tang Hoi-chiu, formerly chief curator of the Hong Kong Museum of Art. Mr Tang has also arranged docent training and guided tours, which centre on the themes of art appreciation and curatorial skills.
The month-long exhibition will start from 30 September until 27 October at the Innovation Gallery, Jockey Club Innovation Tower.
