On Wednesday 4th June I escorted a group of 1st year students from the Visual Arts and Culture Higher Diploma Programme of HKDI to Gallery 27 in Wanchai.
Gallery 27 is described as a ‘studio-cum-gallery’ and was founded by Hong Kong designer Alan Chan.
The current exhibition entitled INOUTPUT comprises a collection of cultural objects around the world, assembled and displayed according to various criteria by Alan Chan and MIRO – Michael Leung & Rony Chan.
The objects were classified into the following categories:
Input, output, virtual/real, yin/yang, nature/human, original/fake.
My students enjoyed the experience of seeing these objects and it was anther reminder that in order to experience culture, we must see it up close in order to feel its value and identity.
It was a very rewarding visit for anyone interested in art, design and culture.
