"A World Within: The Art and Inspiration of Irene Chou"
Venue: Asia Society Hong Kong
Exhibition Period: 25 September 2019 - 5 January 2020
In collaboration with Asia Society Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Jockey Club presents "A World Within: The Art and Inspiration of Irene Chou" as the third installment in Asia Society’s “20th Century Chinese Female Artist Series". One of the most inventive artists at the forefront of Hong Kong’s New Ink Art Movement, Irene Chou (1924-2011) had a dynamic career spanning from the 1950s to early 2000s. She was remarkable for paving new possibilities in Chinese ink painting through a highly original abstract visual language, and her exploration of modern themes informed by metaphysics, science, religion and literature, as well as her personal outlook on life. With over forty works, this exhibition traces Chou’s artistic trajectory and considers her historical significance in the first major thematic survey since the artist’s passing.
