April to May

April’s clear water conveys emotions, with mountains and hills overlapping in greenery, and flowers everywhere dyeing the picture of life.
In May, the sky is calm, and plants are happy, blooming among the lush grass and flowers, creating a pure and innocent creative atmosphere.

he Hong Kong Jockey Club Series: Joan Miró — The Poetry of Everyday Life

Time: Mon=Wed, Fri 10:00-18:00

Thursday (Except public holidays) Closed


Along with Picasso and Dali, Joan Miró was one of the three most renowned Spanish artists of the 20th century.  Joan Miró’s love for all kinds of everyday objects and their intrinsic poetic qualities is apparent throughout his long and fruitful career. Linking art to life was one of his greatest aspirations, which was realized by his unique ability to perceive the poetic qualities possessed by the most humble of objects. This exhibition presents 94 artworks (including paintings, sculptures, drawings, textiles, lithographs, posters) and audio-visual materials, many of which come from the Fundació Joan Miró, an institution founded by Miró himself in 1975.

To complement the exhibition, the Museum has invited local artists GayBird and Leelee Chan to create installations in response to Miró’s art, and local illustrator Zoie Lam to create Miró-inspired illustrations for an education booklet and a special display with elements of augmented reality effects. Artworks from the Museum’s own collection are also showcased in juxtaposition with Miró’s art to create a unique dialogue between the East and the West.

News of the Art World

Lee Ufan丨Everything is in "The Beauty of Blank Space"

Lee Ufan, born in South Korea in 1936 in the mountains of Gyeongnam, studied calligraphy, poetry and painting at Kyungnam College and Seoul National University. He is one of the most important theorists and practitioners of the avant-garde art genre "Mono-ha". "

Influenced by both his growth environment and his educational environment, Lee Ufan integrated the process of artistic creation and philosophical thinking, and believed that the ultimate concept of an art work lies in "encounter", that is, the connection between the work, the viewer, and the current space is a one-off “Encounter" dynamic process. Regardless of the medium of the work, he always believes that the layout and texture are more worthy of attention than the formal elements - because there is an invisible "resonant connection" between the material of the work and the surrounding environment. Although most of his works have a powerful image, the viewer seems to be easily drawn into this large "gravitational field", which instantly evokes a sense of tranquility.

His paintings are good at expressing the beginning and end of life with dots and lines, which incorporate his unique philosophical views and are full of meaning. For him, a blank canvas is the infinite universe of creation, while repeated painting movements are the expression of personal cultivation, from which art is born.

Starting from art to explore artist Shui Hetian's outlook on life

      As an art lover, I often visit various art exhibitions to explore the works of different artists. Appreciating works of art is not only my hobby in leisure time, but also can broaden my artistic vision and get enlightenment and inspiration from it. Recently, there was a painter whose work impressed me very much.


      I believe that most people in Hong Kong are familiar with the artist Shui Hetian. Over the years, his photographs and paintings have a unique and natural style, and they are timeless. Recently I had the opportunity to view one of his works, "Big Thousand Worlds". When viewing this painting, two interpretations of the work come to mind. In the painting, with dark and light colors, it is very freehand to see the lotus and leaves floating on the lake with gentle ripples. After looking at the painting carefully, I took a step back and when I looked at the work in a macro view, I saw a paddy field and small animals. This reminds me that it has something to do with the artist's name Shuihetian, as well as the origin of the universe and the meaning of Buddha-nature.


       In addition to my appreciation of Shui Hetian’s extraordinary artistic creations, I also admire him for his love and righteousness. Artist Shui Hetian once painted and filmed clips for a senior artist who he cherishes as a teacher and friend, in order to make his friend’s art exhibition more impressive and attractive. He often presented his paintings free for fundraising activities to helped the disadvantaged.  He is just a very charitable person.


       Shui Hetian is not only full of cultural heritage, but also a person with both moral character and integrity. We not only need to learn from him in terms of art, but also the way he treats people.

JC Jessie’s art is rooted in the Materials Cultural of Cantonese Opera Costumes research, one of the Intangible Cultural Heritage in Hong Kong, where a strong linkage between her family ties
