Hey, What’s going on?

A group of passionate artists chose to study part-time alongside their full-time jobs. There was a lot of pressure to balance work and study, especially since quality art demands full-time production.

Why study art? Did they achieve their goals? Are they carrying on and fighting for it? Did a part-time study give them a significant change? Is the passion of art still with them?

Hey, What’s going on?

A few years down the line, a group of Master of Visual Art (MVA) graduates of Academy of Visual Arts would like to take the opportunity to greet one another with this exhibition. They bring back recent thoughts and latest works from them.


Participating Artists :

Alongside the opening, there would be a mini forum and our MVA gathering.


Mini Forum

Topic: No time to create freely, transiting from part-time to full-time

In the forum, we have invited Kurt Chan, who will discuss the conflicts of pursuing art as a profession. The gap between expectation and reality and how to position oneself while expanding the definition of artmaking.

We also have Dr. Bryan Chung, our programme director of Master of Art, AVA, HKBU, who would share his experience of achieving a balance between being an art educator and a visual artist.

Guest speakers: Mr. Kurt Chan, Dr. Bryan Chung
