Cultural Partner of Art Basel in Hong Kong 2023
Art Basel Hong Kong is an annual international event, which gathers works from leading art galleries in Asia and other regions, and presents to the public an in-depth overview of diverse artistic creations. Hong Kong Arts Center has been a cultural partner of Art Basel Hong Kong for many years, and this year we present "Art for Tomorrow" to create new interpretations for existing heritage and contemporary art.
Fostering Hong Kong arts and cultural development
Since 1977, the Hong Kong Arts Centre (HKAC) has been a platform for nurturing and supporting artists, and infusing art into everyday life. Last year, we ran around 50 arts programs across multiple art forms, including visual arts, public arts, moving images and performing arts, nurturing the next generation of artists and developing talent to enrich Hong Kong’s art ecosystem.
Celebrating Hong Kong local cultures
Through the ‘Intangible Cultural Heritage Plus (ICH+) ’ program, Hong Kong Arts Centre aims to preserve and revive the cultural heritage of Hong Kong. Traditional craft artists and contemporary artists gather to pass on traditional skills, infusing them into contemporary art.
Integrating ‘Education’, ‘Revitalisation and Investigation’ as well as ‘Curatorship and Audience-building’, ‘ICH+’ keeps the traditional cultures alive and educates the next generation to celebrate our heritage treasures.
Grooming future fine art talent for Hong Kong
The Hong Kong Art School, established by the Hong Kong Arts Centre, offers 3-year Bachelor's degrees and 2-year Higher Diploma programs in Ceramics, Painting, Photography, and Sculpture. There are also short-term courses and workshops in a wide variety of artistic disciplines. Beginners are welcome to participate!
