Artists will interpret the objects and moods in different forms and styles, and use artistic interpretations to evoke people's memories of the unforgettable moments of events and moods. In artistic creation, one should capture and recapture the original intention, fully display one' unique style and creativity, and encourage the inclusion of modern elements.

Admission: Free

The University Museum and Art Gallery (UMAG) of the University of Hong Kong is honoured to present Pablo Picasso: Paintings in Glass, an unprecedented display of works by the world-famous twentieth-century painter, supported by the French May Arts Festival and Hongkong Land. In the mid-1950s, the workshops of Roger Malherbe-Navarre expanded on the light boxes of French painter Jean Crotti by layering pieces of glass into pictorial depictions (gemmail, French for ‘enamel gem’) of several of Picasso’s paintings.

Impressed by the gemmistes’ masterful assembling and fusing of carefully selected glass, Picasso declared ‘A new art is born!’ Made and exhibited to explore and display the medium’s artistic possibilities, the results are simply astonishing. The selection of works on loan from a private collection, and on view at UMAG, shed a new light on some of Picasso’s most renowned painterly compositions.
