RSS 最後由 編輯
Over more than forty years, the City Contemporary Dance Company has grown into Hong Kong’s largest and longest established modern dance company. Since its early days the company has been based in Wong Tai Sin, but now it, and many of its members, are facing the challenges of having to find a new home base.
While others often described his work as “abstract”, American artist Jack Whitten liked to describe his art as art with truth and soul. He liked to find new and innovative ways to work with paint, often embedding other materials into the surfaces of his paintings. An African American, born in 1939 in a segregated Alabama, Whitten was a strong supporter of the civil rights movement. Several series of his work focus on Black lives. On show for the first time in Hong Kong at Hauser & Wirth are paintings, sculpture and works on paper from the 1960s up to the 2010s.
Sherine Wong started her musical journey more than three decades ago in Malaysia. Before finding her passion in music, she was an athlete and won the title of Miss Malaysia Universe in 1998 when she was just 18. But a love for making music and performing drove her to study jazz in Hong Kong, Japan and New York. She is here with guitarist Eugene Pao to chat with us and bring us her latest single.
