Event Highlights: Open Books: Artists and the Chinese Folding Books – Art Museum

Jointly presented by the Art Museum and Department of Fine Arts, the Open Books: Artists and the Chinese Folding Books Exhibition is open to the public until 22 March 2015. Displaying works of art by contemporary artists from Hong Kong, mainland China and the UK with inspirations from Chinese albums, the exhibition attempts to present the public with modern interpretations of traditional Chinese art by different cultures.

Open Books is an international travelling exhibition featuring artists' books from the early twentieth century to the present day which creatively combine imagery and text. The exhibition explores the possibilities of a cross-cultural investigation of Chinese-style bound volumes that are made by visual artists from both the West and China. The exhibition was initially launched in 2012 at the National Library of Wales, and it featured at the Sanshang Museum of Contemporary Art in Hangzhou and the Logan Regional Gallery in Queensland. The exhibition is coming to Hong Kong in December, and it aims to display diverse works by artists from the United Kingdom alongside Chinese and local artists.
