The Hong Kong Arts Centre is delighted to share that Ms. Firenze Lai, a graduate of the Hong Kong Art School (2006), will be featured in the 57th Venice Biennale International Art Exhibition titled VIVA ARTE VIVA curated by Christine Macel, Chief Curator at the Musée national d’art moderne – Centre Pompidou in Paris. The theme the curator explores for this year’s exhibition focuses on “the role, the voice, and the responsibility” of the artist in the current troubled times.

Her involvement in this major international art event highlights the role of the Hong Kong Arts Centre and the Hong Kong Art School in nourishing the local art scene.
