The ceramic exhibition Intimacy in the Distance │ Hong Kong Art School Alumni Network Exhibition 2019 is co-presented by Hong Kong Arts Centre and Hong Kong Art School Alumni Network. In the 20 years since it was founded, the Hong Kong Art School, a division of the Hong Kong Arts Centre has witnessed the graduation of more than 200 students who were ceramics major, more than a hundred of them have set up their work studios to continue with their art making. They are the new blood of the local ceramics landscape. Thirty-six ceramics artists from different backgrounds and cohorts have been invited to take part in this exhibition. The 118 pieces of exhibits were divided into three sections, focusing on functional objects, art creation and earlier works. The broad spectrum of works presents various perspectives to look at the world. These creative works of art highlight Hong Kong Art School’s steadfast support for ceramics as a professional practice, and our efforts to nurture students who are keen to pursue studious study and innovative attempts at creation.

What makes this exhibition more meaningful is that the participants and organisers are all alumni of the Hong Kong Art School and 50% from the sales of works will be donated to support the continuous development of the Hong Kong Art School.
