Art Installation: Digital Muse

Stepping into a new era of Oi!’s new extension, we may want to examine what creativity really means collectively with the public. This is where the core theme of ‘Digital Muse’ emerges. With new digital media involved, artworks have reached an unprecedented stage of opening up a new field of imagination and creativity. This provides a great opportunity to stretch our minds. All variations of ideas, unconscious surprises, and dreamlike visual languages can now be fully expressed. Artists are empowered to create new visual impacts, resulting in long-lasting memories in the minds of their audience, eventually triggering their own reflections. ‘Digital Muse’ invited six multidisciplinary artists, Kachi Chan, Joey Leung, Erkka Nissinen, Adrian Yu (with Garson Yu) and Ng Tsz-kwan to look into the possibilities of enhancing our senses by creating a new digital urban landscape. This digital collective art installation allows the general public to experience a new genre in an immersive journey. While some will enjoy the visual delight, others might dig deeper and find multiple meanings in the artworks.

Sparkle and Charm: Contemporary Enamel Art

Sparkle and Charm: Contemporary Enamel Art is the Hong Kong’s first art promotion project supported by the China National Arts Fund. The Art Museum will also mount a contemporary enamel art show with jewellery design workshop Loupe at PMQ. The two exhibitions showcase a host of world-class painted enamelware of the Qing dynasty and innovative contemporary enamel artworks. Painted enamelware, a translucent or opaque substance made from glass and other materials that is applied as ornament to the surface of metals, porcelain, glass, etc., was introduced from Europe to China during the late 17th century (the early Qing dynasty). It enthralled the Kangxi Emperor, who instructed the imperial workshops to develop the enameling technology, reproduce the enamels, and apply them on metals, porcelain, and glass. In the process, craftsmen from Canton, now Guangzhou, and Western missionaries who were familiar with the enameling techniques, glass making and painting skills were recruited into the imperial workshops, to produce enamel works. These painted enamels with Chinese and Western elements were mainly for the emperors’ use and for imperial gifts, as well as for export and home markets. Rarely do these ancient artefacts from the past centuries reach a wide audience these days, apart from a few exhibits at the China’s palace museums and a few museums in Guangzhou and Hong Kong. To preserve the legacy of enamel art and raise the public’s interest in it, CUHK’s Art Museum and Loupe will organise a series of DIY workshops and talks alongside the exhibitions. Welcome to Loupe and enjoy the exhibition.
