Heiman Ng Appointed Course Leader for Christie’s Education Hong Kong

26 Sep 2017

 

Heiman Ng joins Christie’s Education Hong Kong

As the newly appointed Course Leader for Christie’s Education in Asia, Heiman Ng is responsible for designing the exciting and engaging curriculum we offer, focusing initially on short courses in Hong Kong. He joins Christie’s Education from CdD, a boutique communications consultancy; previously he was Head of Press, Hong Kong at Bonhams. Find out more about his experience and ambitions in this short interview.

What are your ambitions for Christie’s Education Hong Kong programmes? 

As the Course Leader, I am responsible for the planning and development of Christie’s Education programmes in Asia. At the moment, my focus is to provide teaching and recruitment support for our programmes in Hong Kong and mainland China, and also developing a plan for our short courses and bespoke programmes for next year. I ensure that our courses support and augment Christie’s activities. 

What have you brought from your previous roles that you think will be most exciting at CE? 

I have worked as an arts PR consultant for more than seven years, with clients ranging from international auction houses, art fairs and galleries. I hope that my ability to connect and engage different people both inside and outside of the art world through art will help drive our business in Asia.  

What has your experience of working at CE HKG been so far? 

The team has been extremely supportive and I really enjoy working with them. We completed our short course Art, Law and Ethics in Hong Kong in early September. It was great to see so much positive feedback from the students.

What reasons to study with us would you give a student looking to take a CE HKG course? 

Christie’s Education has a wide range of programmes offered around the world, from short courses and tailor-made programmes, to full-time master’s degrees and art travel. The programmes cover many different categories for students to choose from, both Chinese and Western art and their markets. Periods range from traditional to modern to contemporary. Classes are taught by not only Christie’s specialists but also guest speakers, comprising academics and art professionals.

At Christie’s Education, we strive to create high-quality art-learning experiences for all students so that they can gain a unique insight into the art market. Also, we are launching online courses as a next step in bringing people closer to the art world irrespective of geography and time. Courses will be offered in Mandarin as well as English, so I would highly recommend it to those who are already looking to take our Christie’s Education Hong Kong courses.

What are your own cultural interests?

Apart from such categories as Asian and Western modern and contemporary art that we regularly cover in our short courses, I am also interested in studying Chinese calligraphy and ink paintings as I always believe that ink, as one of the most significant components in Chinese artistic language and culture, is something that distinguishes Chinese from other cultures. I have been learning calligraphy and ink painting for more than five years and am lucky enough to have taken part in some group exhibitions of amateur artists in Hong Kong.

What art events/museums should a visitor definitely see when in Hong Kong?

Art Fairs

Art Basel, Art Central, Fine Art Asia and Ink Asia

Museums

Hong Kong Museum of History, Hong Kong Heritage Museum, Liang Yi Museum and Sun Museum

Galleries

Hanart, Alisan Fine Arts, Pearl Lam, Gagosian, White Cube, Galerie Perrotin, Lehmann Maupin
