The May Fourth Movement is a student movement. Special thanks to the invitation from the Dr Sun Yat-sen Museum, students can provide a contribution to this exhibition and give additional meaning to the project.

With the supervision and guidance of the Associate Professor, Dr Daniel Chak Kwong Lau, students and alumni from the Chinese calligraphy and seal engraving classes of the Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University, created a series of art pieces that embrace the classical beauty of traditional Chinese calligraphy and seal engraving. At the same time, by blending together these special visual art forms, they have incorporated new visions and elements of modern art to express the views held on the May Fourth Movement. Showcasing both traditional and non-traditional elements, this project aims to revisit and understand the meaning of the May Fourth and New Culture Movement, and to echo the spirits and patriotic feelings of the students from 100 years ago.

五四運動是一場學生運動,感謝孫中山紀念館的邀請,讓學生參與五四運動的展覽,使活動顯得別具意義。

在副教授劉澤光博士的指導和帶領下,修讀香港浸會大學視覺藝術院中國書法或篆刻課程的學生及校友,以五四為主題,透過書法或篆刻獨特的視覺藝術語言與中國文字內容的巧妙融合,製作一系列既涵蓋富古典美的傳統書法及篆刻,亦兼收不少以嶄新角度演繹傳統藝術形式的作品,將傳統與非傳統共存,思考及了解這場激動思維的五四新文化運動,以回應一百年前愛國學生的情懷及五四精神!
