Hong Kong – Riding on the success of the inaugural partnership last July, the University of Hong Kong’s Faculty of Arts and Christie’s Education are delighted to announce that they will join forces again to offer “Contemporary Asian Art: An Insider’s View” from 15 – 19 May 2017. Registration opens on 16 January 2017.
This five-day program is targeted at those who wish to begin or deepen their engagement with the art world, whether through collecting or developing careers in the field. Taking Asia as an example, the seminars and visits will teach participants how to look at and evaluate contemporary art, while discussions and class activities will explain how markets and institutions work. The art historical portion of the program is conceived and delivered by the world-class faculty at the Fine Arts Department of the University of Hong Kong, while the market-related portion is developed by Christie’s Education. The program is designed to be hands-on and interactive: through examining original works of art, visiting different art spaces, conversations with industry insiders, and group discussions, it aims to provide a broad spectrum of views into the world of contemporary art in Asia.
