This exhibition with catalogue is published in conjunction with the titled exhibition held at the Hong Kong Museum of Art from May to August 2013. It is the final instalment of the ‘Hong Kong Art: Open Dialogue’ Exhibition Series. Works in various media by 37 contemporary artists from mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan who incorporate the essence of traditional Chinese art into their practices are divided into five groups: ‘Meditation and Narration’, ‘Energy Field: Creation and Space’, ‘Writing and Self-Cultivation’, ‘City · The World of Mortals’, and ‘Great Harmony’. Artist biographies are provided in the appendix.
‘With his “The Origin of Dao”, Professor Pi as a guest curator opens up dialogues on Hong Kong art into a wider context of contemporary Chinese art development, in particular ink art. He establishes that the traditional (ink) Chinese art is an embodiment of the Chinese spirit and philosophy and that (ink) art in China has long been practiced as a way for human individual to dialogue with the universe and with history. The tangible tools, including the media, the materials and the techniques, combined with the intangible ideas and philosophies are all essential parts in defining the Chinese culture. They are also valuable assets to the world. For such precious resources to contribute to the global issues and development of the world culture, the question at stark for contemporary Chinese artist is dual. On one hand, it is a question of how the traditional Chinese art form can survive as a living and useful language for dialogue in the contemporary times with a global audience. On the other hand, it is also about how to break away from the Western speech to articulate for oneself and to converse with the world in order to tell and share differences.’ Eve Tam, Chief Curator, Hong Kong Museum of Art (excerpt from p 8)
