The Visual Arts students develop their own exhibition, not only the artistic part but also the curatorial, financial, communicational and group tasks.

Visual Arts students’ works on show in Germany


The works produced by 17 Visual Arts students were showcased during the “from here to there” exhibition held in Berlin, Germany from 9 to 17 January.

The founder of International Art Moves conducted a week-long intensive workshop at HKBU in June 2015, during which 17 Visual Arts students learned the theoretical and practical aspects of curating a professional art exhibition overseas. The students made models, planned budgets and created time schedules. Eventually, five students were selected as representatives to curate the exhibition with International Art Moves in Berlin’s art centre Kunstquartier Bethanien. They were Year 4 students Annie Choi, Poon Mei-yee and Tsim Hui-laam as well as alumni Lam Wing-sze and Chan Pak-kin. They presented the works produced by the 17 HKBU artists to visitors from around the world.

The works expressed how the young artists perceive the world and their reflection on social issues.

視覺藝術院共17位同學的作品於1月9至17日在德國柏林「from here to there」展覽中展出。

「國際藝術行動」創辦人去年6月到訪浸大舉辦了一星期的工作坊,17位視覺藝術同學透過工作坊學習如何在海外的專業展覽館策劃展覽,包括製作模型、制定財政預算及時間表等。最後五位同學獲邀到德國柏林Kunstquartier Bethanien藝術中心與「國際藝術行動」合辦展覽,他們是四年級的蔡安怡同學、潘美義同學、詹昫嵐同學、林穎詩校友和陳百堅校友。他們代表17位浸大同學把作品和藝術構思帶到國際層面。
