Blindspot Gallery is delighted to present “Happily Ever After”, a summer group exhibition featuring works by ten recent graduates of BA and MFA programs of Academy of Visual Arts at Hong Kong Baptist University, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong Art School, and The School of Creative Media at City University of Hong Kong. Showcasing a wide range of materials and approaches, including drawing, paintings, mixed media, installations, video and photography, the ensemble presents a variegated approach to art-making that serves as a conclusion mark to the student era and the commencement to a future that is at once uncertain and hopeful. Blindspot Gallery has identified a selection of emerging talents and insightful works, in an attempt to articulate an open vision of self-expression and creativity that will soon be part of the local art community.

A Discussion Panel with professors and lecturers will be held to discuss the recent trends of art-making in their respective academies. Speakers include Chan An Gee (Lecturer, the Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University), Ho Siu-Kee (Associate Professor and Director of MA program in Fine Arts, The Chinese University of Hong Kong), Leung Chi Wo (Associate Professor, The School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong), Lee Wing Ki (Lecturer, Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University) and Ivy Ma King Chu (Lecturer, Hong Kong Art School). The discussion will be conducted in Cantonese.
