Connecting Hong Kong to the World through Art 立足香港 以藝術連結世界

 

Boasting a long history, ink paining is an important Chinese heritage. Besides the brushstrokes, the mood, tone, and spirit are salient characteristics in each work. 


In recent years, Hong Kong has joined London and New York as the three largest art markets in the world. As the first large-scale ink painting exhibition, Ink Global aims to promote the overall development of ink painting by gathering the works of 500 elite painters of the genre. This exhibition will serve as a positive step towards elevating the status of ink painting in the world and strengthening Hong Kong's position as the ink painting capital of Asia. 


I deeply appreciate the vision and initiative of both the organizer, Young Artists Development Foundation, and the co-organizer, Wan Fung Art Gallery, for mobilizing resources from the community within a year to organize an exhibition on such a global scale. In commemoration of the 20th anniversary of Hong Kong's return to China, this event, through showcasing the beauty of Eastern ink paintings to the Hong Kong public and international friends, celebrates Hong Kong's achievements in fine arts and culture as well as the city's status as cosmopolitan melting pot where East meets West.


I strongly believe that the tradition of ink painting and dialogues on contemporary ink painting documented in this exhibition will serve as important reference materials for Eastern art history and leave a lasting impact on the global ink painting scene. In the community, they will further promote the status and appreciation of ink painting, which is an important cultural tradition treasured by us all.

 

水墨藝術是中國源遠流長的文化瑰寶,於筆墨以外,更重視意境與氣韻。


近年,香港已與倫敦和紐約並列全球三大藝術品交易中心之一。作為香港首個規模最大的水墨畫展覽,是次「全球水墨畫大展」旨在推動水墨藝術的整體發展,希望結集全球500位跨代水墨畫精英的出色作品,進一步提升水墨畫的國際地位,同時為鞏固並推進香港成為“亞洲水墨之都”,跨出更大一步。


十分欣賞主辦機構藝育菁英基金會與協辦機構雲峰畫苑的遠見與魄力,於不到一年的時間內,凝聚民間資源,為香港籌辦如此一個具國際視野的展覽,在回歸祖國20週年之際,展現香港在藝術文化方面的成就,與市民大眾和海外朋友分享東方水墨藝術的魅力,並向世界展示香港中西並蓄的文化內涵。


深信這次展覽所紀錄的傳統與現代水墨藝術對話,日後將成為東方藝術史上一重要參考,對世界水墨藝術發展有著深遠影響,帶動提升人們對水墨藝術此傳統文化的鑑賞與自信。
