“Gangcai” is a diverse cultural medium. The original skills from “Guangcai” in Guangzhou has branched out and blossomed since its arrival in Hong Kong, creating its own historical and artistic value.

In the past century, Gangcai continued to innovate and glow in Hong Kong by showcasing the diversity of cultural exchange between East and West, resulting in a unique Hong Kong hand-painted porcelain style. It is the golden age of Gangcai which has become an important sector and legend in Hong Kong’s economy.

For our “Gangcai Encounter” presentation, Artspace K has invited eight Hong Kong Gangcai artists to awaken the emotions, and bond between Gangcai and the Hong Kong people. Its beautiful name reflects Hong Kong’s memory which has been retraced, reconstructed and re-innovated to integrate into the lives of contemporary Hong Kong people and gaining recognition in the art field.

「港彩」,是多變的文化媒介。發源與技藝來自廣州「廣彩」,傳承到香港後枝椏如根似的在這開出具時代的花,一步步創造自己的歷史價值與成就。

近百年來「港彩」在香港,不斷推陳出新、延續及發光,展現香港東西文化交匯多元的面貌,且具備獨特的香港本地色彩,堪稱是港彩的流金歲月,也成為香港經濟的重要板塊與傳奇。今次Artspace K邀請八位港彩藝術家,透過「遇上港彩」專題介紹,喚醒港彩與香港人在情感與日常的羈絆,將這美麗名詞與藝術從香港的記憶中取出、回溯、重置並創新,讓它在當代港人的生活中融合,更在藝術領域上被重視。
