The recent cohorts of ACC fellowship recipients were conferred the ACC Fellowship Awards on October 11, in recognition of their fellowships in ACC. The ceremony made for a jovial evening of reunions and catch-up among friends of ACC. The evening also saw presentations and performances by alumni, and paid tribute to the Patrons' Circle, a vital pillar of support that sustains ACC Hong Kong's work in supporting excellent artists for transformational cultural exchange fellowships abroad every year. ACC is indebted to Dr. Xu Xiaodong (2004 Fellow) and Duncan Pescod (Chief Executive Officer of West Kowloon Cultural District Authority) for their intriguing dialogue on Chinese artifacts and the Palace Museum, as well as Tsang Man Tung (2009 Fellow), Chen Kai (2008 Fellow), Chan Ming Long (1994 Fellow), Law Wing Fai (1994 Fellow), and the Wuji Ensemble for the Chinese Music and Dance Improvisation performance, all of which put on display the talents of ACC alumni in diverse fields. Many thanks for all the alumni and friends who have attended the ceremony to celebrate with ACC too!

"Critics in Dialogue"
Art Appraisal Club

Asia Society Hong Kong Center
The Hong Kong Jockey Club Hall,
Sunday | December 10, 2017 | 4 - 6 pm
With the "Asian Cultural Council - Asia Society Series on the Arts", ACC and Asia Society Hong Kong Center (ASHK) jointly present an array of arts events and activities that facilitate creative exchange among ACC's dynamic network of artist alumni and stimulate the development of the arts in the region. Through performances, talks, forums, and sharing by some of the most active practitioners in their own fields across China, Hong Kong and Macau, the series explores new, exciting prospects for arts professionals in the field.

ACC has supported not a few art critics for cultural exchange fellowships abroad. Among those are Yeung Yang (2012 Fellow), Jeff Leung (2012 Fellow), Kwok Ying (2014 Fellow), and Vivian Ting (2017 Fellow), who have in recent years formed the Art Appraisal Club, along with Chan Sai Lok and Leung Po-Shan Anthony. This December, ACC and ASHK are pleased to present a public forum with the Art Appraisal Club, during which the art critics will review recent standout exhibitions in the region for quality dialogue and discussions.
