We invite Abe You-ching Tsai, researcher of the exhibition division at the National Museum of History, and Koon Wai Bong to discuss “On the Trends in Contemporary Ink Art”, and reconsider the disputes, recognitions, spirit and expectations in the process of ink modernization; the two speakers will also reveal their observations of the development of ink art in Hong Kong and Taiwan, which resonates with the acknowledgment of the Hong Kong artist in this solo exhibition, and examines the forms of the dynamic and significance behind the now diverse creative approaches of ink art. The exhibition is on view through November 19th, 2017.
