The Fourth Edition of Asia Week Hong Kong will conclude with a panel discussion and a cocktail reception that follows. The event highlights the myriad meanings of collecting, and is hosted in support of the Friends of the Art Museum at the Institute of Chinese Studies, The Chinese University of Hong Kong at the beautiful premises of Bonhams.
The Friends of the Art Museum has long promoted the appreciation and study of Chinese art and culture. The panel discussion follows up on last year’s relaunch event of the Collectors Circle supported by the Asia Week Hong Kong. After the acquisition of the “Zen Lotus” by painter Lui Shou Kwan (1919 – 1975), the Friends of the Art Museum will make another major gift to celebrate its 35th Anniversary in November.
A presentation on the highlights on the Museum’s history and collection by Prof. Josh Yiu, the Museum’s Associate Director, will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Ms. Enid Tsui from the South China Morning Post with Mr. Vincent Lo, Justice Robert Tang, Prof. Josh Yiu, Mr. Howard Bilton, and Mr. Romi Lamba on the meanings and experiences of collecting art with the theme of “35 years of Collecting”. The discussion reflects back on the contributions to the collection made by the Friends of the Art museum over the years, and the profound importance of supporting art museums for art patrons and the community alike.
