The Academy of Visual Arts (AVA), under the School of Creative Arts (SCA) of the Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU), is presenting the Master's Graduation Exhibition of 2023 - Eccentric by 39 graduates. The word “Eccentric” comes from the Greek ekkentros and means “off center”. Someone or something that is out of the ordinary and interacts with the world with flare and relish. This exhibition celebrates and dances with eccentricity and immersed in its creative power to temporarily break-free from the mundane surroundings of normality. Embracing a range of mediums and styles, the works challenge us to explore the boundaries of what we know, and to venture into uncharted territory. From the wild and whimsical to the structured and precise, each piece embodies the spirit of eccentricity. Join us on this escapade to follow one's dreams and romance.   

本屆香港浸會大學創意藝術學院旗下視覺藝術院由39位畢業生呈現命名為「欹」的2023年碩士畢業展。英語 Eccentric 一詞來自希臘語 ekkentros,意指「偏離中心」。以不尋常的姿態向世界展開玩味互動。 是次展覽暫時擺脫常態,與恢詭譎怪慶祝共舞,沉浸在它的創造力中。 作品採用多種媒介和風格,挑戰並重新探索已知事物的邊界,進入未知的領域。 從狂野和異想天開到結構恰好,每份作品都體現「欹」的精神。 讓我們在冒險之旅中作伴,一同逃往追尋幻想浪漫之行。

Art Talk: “Sociability in Socially Engaged Art”
Date: 22 July, 2023(Saturday)
Time: 2pm - 3pm
Location: Kai Tak Campus, HKBU**Conducted in Cantonese

活動日期: 2023年7月22日(星期六)

"Socially engaged art" is an extension of relational practice, where artists propose a collaborative model to practice, promote, and reflect on community and artistic engagement. Sociability, the important part in social relations, has become the focal point of socially engaged art. However, when artists step out of their studios or classrooms and enter into crowds and unfamiliar communities, how should they establish relationships with people? What role do artists play in this process? This talk aims to explore the practice of socially engaged art, and the impact of the relationship between artists and residents on the effectiveness and sustainability of the society. In addition, the talk welcomes the audience to discuss, share experiences, and raise questions. Through this talk, we hope to promote the development and expansion of socially engaged art, and strengthen the interaction between the community and arts.

Everyday objects, such as a broken cup or a throw pillow from a friend, hold their own stories and experiences. The way they appear in our memories creates a unique image, much like how each person has their own character and personality. Participants in this workshop are invited to reimagine their relationship with these objects and bring them to life as toy characters with unique appearances and personalities, using various materials.
