HONG KONG, China - SCAD, the most comprehensive art and design university in the world, presents two new exhibitions at the university's galleries in Hong Kong: "A Fine Line
," an exploration of East meets West, and "An Area of Beginnings: A SCAD Documentation of Sham Shui Po
," highlighting the traditional beauty of this historic Hong Kong neighborhood. Both exhibitions are free and open to the public.
In "A Fine Line," SCAD alumnae and artists Gyun Hur (M.F.A., sculpture
, 2009) and Hilary White (B.F.A., painting
, 2007) utilize a contemporary approach to examine Eastern and Western culture and aesthetics. While employing varying media such as sculpture, painting, photography and installation, the two share similar formal considerations, such as vibrant saturated palettes, which serve to complement their interpretations of these themes.
"'A Fine Line' brings together two extraordinary SCAD graduates who share an affinity for expressing their unique personal, spiritual and cultural experiences as celebrated with correlating vibrant palettes and a sensitivity to the expressiveness of materials, gesture and representation," said Erin Dziedzic, SCAD exhibition curator.
"An Area of Beginnings: A SCAD Documentation of Sham Shui Po" showcases selections from a School of Fine Arts
student photography project that explores and documents the quickly transforming Sham Shui Po neighborhood of Hong Kong, home to SCAD's newest location. Images lyrically capture the charm of the people, buildings and traditions of this historic community, from bonesetters to stall vendors and from temples to pawn shops.
Artists include SCAD M.F.A. photography students Scott Chandler, Greer Muldowney, Andrew Phillips and Michelle Strickling; SCAD B.F.A. photography students David Greer, Andrew Hefter and Jessica Zeigler; and SCAD alumna Charlotte Shuber (M.F.A., photography, 2010) and SCAD alum James Jackman (B.F.A., photography, 2011).
SCAD Gallery, one of the newest additions to Central's art district, and Moot Gallery, located at SCAD Hong Kong
in Sham Shui Po, present rotating exhibitions of the very best work by SCAD students, professors, alumni and renowned visiting artists whose talent is shaping and giving rise to new creative dialogues about contemporary art and design.
