Come elbow bump us! (Press Release of Art-n-Connectors)

Come elbow bump us!

The first MA in Fine Arts class from The Chinese University of Hong Kong to unveil group show art-n-connectors

Hong Kong (June 4, 2010): The first cohort of MA in Fine Arts students from The Chinese University of Hong Kong will open its show, “art-n-connectors” on July 2, 2010 at the Hong Kong Visual Arts Center.

The exhibition will showcase works of more than 20 artists that reflect diverse practices, skills, professional experience, and personal background. Differences have worked for rather than against these practitioners in a group setting — bringing new light, excitement, and possibilities that enrich each other’s art practices, approaches, and ways of thinking.

It is Art that’s the Connector (another name for elbow bump, a unique way of greeting by touching or tapping elbows) as much as these art practitioners are the connectors who want to reach all walks of life, extraterrestrial included, through their plethora of practices, issues interested, and medium deployed ranging from painting, sculpture, installation, ceramics, glass to performance, photography, video, and community projects.

Aiming to engage new audiences and different communities, the participating practitioners will also host a ‘Meet-the-Artists’ session on Saturday July 3, 2010 from 3pm to 5pm in conjunction with this exhibition.
