On the occasion of the fifth anniversary of Asia Week Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Art Gallery Association presents a conversation with Fung Ming Chip, calligrapher, and Catherine Maudsley, art historian, art consultant, curator, and educator. Fung is known for his 'new scripts' that free the visual experience from the written language. He was Artist-in-Residence at the University of Cambridge, and his works have been included in major private collections and public institutions internationally. In 2014, he completed After Mi Fu Handscroll, Response to Mi Fu’s Boat on Wu River, a work that was commissioned by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Fung’s interlocutor is Catherine Maudsley, who was a Connaught Scholar at the University of Toronto, a Canada-China Scholar in Beijing, and a Commonwealth Scholar in Hong Kong. She has published and lectured extensively on Asian art. This event will offer an internationally acclaimed artist’s perspective on his own works, as well as creating art across cultural boundaries between America and the Greater China Region. Maudsley’s intervention will also enrich this conversation with her expertise and experience on Chinese art.
