Guangzhou in International Trade


Guangdong Folk Arts Museum has a collection of high-quality Guangzhou handicrafts (referred to as "Guangzuo") represented by various categories such as Guangzhou ivory carving, Guangzhou embroidery, and Guangzhou color.  Guangzuo has a long history and a profound maritime trade tradition, and once sailed from the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area to the world. Since the 18th to 19th centuries, Guangzhou has become one of the central cities of the world trade system. "Guangzuo" carries the oriental aesthetic that the world yearns for, and is sold globally along trade routes. Its production, operation, and exports have driven the development of port cities in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao region.

City Urban Art Exhibition


"Reality" and "ideal" are just like "form" and "color". They are constantly swinging and fighting against each other, but in the process of continuous growth, they are constantly merging and influencing each other, gradually evolving into a symbiotic relationship beyond the conflict, which makes our life more lifelike. Graffiti art is a kind of expressive and unique art. It breaks through the shackles of traditional art and is extremely active. It represents the artistic concept and diversified aesthetic trend of the young generation. Admittedly, life is not perfect, but we can still use color to doodle, to fill the gap between the pursuit of ideal and the acceptance of reality. This is also the message that this art exhibition wants to convey to the audience - all "shapes" and "colors" are our pursuit, reality and ideal are not contradictory. It is hoped that the audience can feel unique emotions through the "form" and "color" of the live works, and move towards the reconciliation between self and reality.

All Things Created by Fade


The eastern world has been sensitive to the concept of dan 淡 (the lightness of a painting’s color. The name, “fade”, is inspired from fadeur in French art) and gone so far as to bestow it with an abstract structure. Though devoid of direct echoes and attention from viewers, the art concept is concrete: relative with the denseness of colors, it is characterized by clarity and originality in a non-solemn way. It exchanges the guiding and arousing effects for viewers’ focus on the natural presentation of the objects in paintings. Comprised of the dialectical relationship between “tough” and “gentle”, the concept serves as a link between the finite and the infinite and eventually merges into the tangible material and intangible ideology of paintings. Therefore, dan, the eastern fade, is not only a visual expression but also a symbol of ideal and wisdom of the literati in Chinese landscape paintings. 

This exhibition is honored to invite eight artists, including Chen Shuxia, Wang Shaoqiang, Zeng Jianyong, Peng Wei, Wang Muyuu, Hang Chunhui, Kang Haitao, and Huang Yishan, all of whom will interpret the eastern fade via the application of different media and materials as well as their unique way of expression. Their interpretations range from highlighting the subtle elegance of colors as well as utilizing transparent and flowing colors, to turning the common forms and narrative delicate and novel, and to constructing unadorned but intriguing imagery through abstract forms by minimizing the focus on connotations. As the concept is both the origin and the destination of all, it makes the balance shown in paintings possible and facilitates the normal functioning of their internal logics. Instead of implying deficiency, it tells the truth about naturality: all things are created by fade.

The Image Of China Spreads To The West


In these printmaking works about China before the First Opium War, Chinese scenery was deeply processed by a subjective way, which is a European imagination of the mysterious East -- a country that can produce such exquisite silk, porcelain, lacquerware, tea, is an idyllic paradise: the people there live and work in peace and contentment The emperor led his officials to manage the country according to the strict Confucian moral life.  People of any class can become officials through the fair imperial examination system and participate in the management of public affairs.  Voltaire, a famous French thinker in the so-called "Enlightenment", is the promoter of this statement.  However, after the publication of the real news of the Magarney Mission in China from 1792 to 1794 in Europe, people were surprised to realize the various ills of the arrogant and narrow Qing Empire.  When Hegel read the "Record of the British Envoy Visiting Qianlong" by Stendon in the Magarney Mission, he commented that the autocratic dictatorship of the emperor of the Chinese Empire had deprived everyone in the empire of free will, and the whole Chinese civilization was in a state of stagnation and sleep.  However, the weakness of the Qing Empire and the big powers in the military conflict seems to confirm Hegel's statement of this ancient oriental civilization.  After the Opium War, the Qing government had to open its doors and gradually open more trading ports to western countries.  It also made more real images of China spread through various weekly magazines and pictorial newspapers in European countries.

Italia Geniale Design Emables


ITALIA GENIALE is a touring exhibition promoted by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and the Ministry of Enterprises and Made in Italy in cooperation with ADI (Association for Industrial Design), Unioncamere and the Italian Trade Agency. This exhibition intends to turn the spotlight on the invention, creativity, and design behind Made in Italy. In its role of scientific curator, ADI (the Association of Industrial Design) was closely involved in the design of the exhibition, selecting both historical and contemporary patents and products, a number of which have been awarded with the prestigious Compasso d’Oro Award.  In actual fact, the overall interpretive framework was “driven” by design, since this is a discipline that constantly aims to achieve innovation, linking function and beauty while always considering the user as the central focus of every creative activity. In the exhibition, the concept of enabling is expressed in the following five different categories: “move-able”, “live-able”, “imagine-able”, “relation-able”, “work-able.  Over 70 selected design items on display showcase the ingenuity and creativity that has made Italy a global leader in design.

Windows of the Soul


Whitestone Gallery is thrilled to present the group exhibition Windows of the soul, featuring artworks by French artists Marion Flament, Jean Marie Haessle, Béchir Boussandel, and Baptiste Tavernier. Windows of the soul is a group exhibition exploring how artists see their mysterious, dream-like patterns defy the dichotomous cosmology, relaxing its tsemporal and spatial laws. It also gives a glimpse of the landscape of the current or a historical era. As the artists freely express what their hearts desire, dreams and imaginations in interwoven compositions of peculiar figures, bring out narratives of life that transcend time and space. Alongside realistic renditions came a new attempt at spiritual explorations. For the viewers, these creative productions are openings to dreams, to the essence of arts, in which the window becomes an artistic witness to the brutalities or beauties occurring in the world. The possibilities are furthered in current times as we increasingly explore the outlooks of the future through the window (screens).

Gao Xingjian: Inner Vision 2023


To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the French May Arts Festival, Alisan Fine Arts is honoured to announce its 9th solo exhibition for Gao Xingjian, the first Chinese writer awarded a Nobel Laureate. The French-Chinese author is also a renowned artist and playwright. This is Gao's first solo exhibition after being awarded the Commander of the Legion of Honour in January. Most of the works in this exhibition were created in the last two years and are focused on landscapes. However, Gao's landscape paintings are different from the typical landscape paintings we mostly see. Gao does not portray the reality and perspective of the scene but pursues the changes of light, shadow, and air with various shades of ink on the rice paper. Therefore, whether it is fog, the moonlight, or the wind, the vision appears misty or hazy. The works constitute Gao's inner world, echoing his award-winning novel Soul Mountain.

Au pied de la lettre


Florence Levillain's personal work has always focused on rediscovering the universes that are close to everyone but are unknown or forgotten by many. The French language is one of these universes: every day, French people use lots of vivid metaphors, without thinking about their literal meaning or understanding their origin. Florence revisits these expressions and places them in the spotlight by framing them into pictures "au pied de la lettre" or "literally". The result is an unusual series of photography works which aims to raise awareness of the lyricism and humour of French language metaphors.

"Cartier and Women" is the first major exhibition that foregrounds women's role and presence in the history of Cartier. The exhibition celebrates women's lifestyles, creativity, and influence, featuring about three hundred stunning items of Cartier jewellery, timepieces, precious objects, and archival records from the nineteenth century to the present day. Through these exquisite works and fascinating stories, the exhibition's four thematic sections explore the close relationship between women, jewellery, and fashion. This exhibition also highlights the profound impact of art from China and other parts of the world on Cartier, a testament to the Museum's mission to facilitate dialogue among world civilisations.

Ancient Gold 


The special exhibition marks the debut of the Hong Kong Palace Museum's permanent collection at a major special exhibition and is the biggest exhibition on ancient gold artefacts in Hong Kong in recent years. On view from 22 February through 25 September 2023, it showcases more than 200 sets of ancient golds selected from the generous donations by Betty Lo and Kenneth Chu to the HKPM and their world-renowned Mengdiexuan Collection. These precious objects from the Eurasian Steppe, Tubo Kingdom, and Central Plains, with the oldest dating back to the 18th century BCE, highlight gold's artistic and technical achievements in ancient China. The exhibition also explores the role of gold in political activities, life, culture, and the dynamic connections across territories over the past 3,000 years.

Pablo Picasso: Paintings in Glass


The University Museum and Art Gallery of the University of Hong Kong is honoured to collaborate with the French May Arts Festival on Pablo Picasso: Paintings in Glass, an unprecedented display of works by the world-famous twentieth-century painter. In the mid-1950s, the workshops of Roger Malherbe-Navarre expanded on the light boxes of French painter Jean Crotti by layering pieces of glass into pictorial depictions (gemmail, French for 'enamel gem') of several of Picasso's paintings.

Impressed by the gemmistes' masterful assembling and fusing of carefully selected glass, Picasso declared, 'A new art is born!' Made and exhibited to explore and display the medium's artistic possibilities, the results are simply astonishing. The selection of works on loan from a private collection, and on view at UMAG during the French May Arts Festival 2023, shed new light on some of Picasso's most renowned painterly compositions.

"My Nini" – Huang Benrei Works Private Collection Exhibition


The exhibition showcases a series of 27 paintings and sculptures featuring the rabbit character "Nini" as the main theme, leading the audience into Huang Benrei’s artistic world. All exhibited works are generously presented by collector Mr. Arnaldo Ho Yau Heng, who is deeply fascinated by "Nini", one of his beloved collection themes, due to his affinity with rabbits and admiration for Huang Benrei’s artistic style. "Nini" has a cute and charming character, with a gentle and fragile appearance and very few facial expressions. It is both the protagonist and the supporting role in the picture, with rich emotions and gentleness inside which deeply captivate Mr. Ho and provide him a unique tranquility, echoing the saying from Huang Benrei, "Sometimes the World gets dark and heavy, but we can always brighten it with a lighter heart."
