Focus on Sculpture
HKIAAF 09 will feature a wide range of sculpture in both the Antiques and Art sections, by both Western and Chinese masters. In the Antiques section, renowned London dealer Rossi & Rossi will offer important Himalayan works of art, including a splendid late 17th/early 18th century Mongolian gilt copper sculpture depicting the bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara in the four-armed form. Hong Kong’s M & C Gallery will display a magnificent and rare Ming Dynasty gilt-bronze figure of Mahakala with his Consort, dating from the 15th century.

In the Art section, Kwai Fung Hin Art Gallery will showcase an exhibition of sculptures by masters as well as young artists, divided into two sections: Modern Western Sculpture and Contemporary Chinese Sculpture. Highlights include two bronze sculptures by Amedeo Modigliani (1884 – 1920) and works by Chinese artists Ren Si Hong and Gao Xiao Wu. Galerie Ora-Ora will also display Contemporary Chinese and Hong Kong sculptors, including works by renowned Chinese sculptor Xu Hongfei and Hong Kong sculptor Man Fung-Yi.

Special Exhibition by the National Museum of China
The National Museum of China was established in 2003 and was formerly known as the Museum of Chinese History. The Museum is currently under re-construction and extension. On completion, it will be the largest museum in the world. The first phase will be completed in October 2009; the extension will be finished and opened in 2010. The completion of the first phase will coincide with the celebration of the 60th anniversary of the People’s Republic of China. The opening is scheduled for early October, at the same time as HKIAAF 09.

HKIAAF 09 will sponsor an exhibition by the National Museum of China to introduce the history and new development of the Museum. Two renowned artists from mainland China, Liu Gang and Xiong Guangqin, will be coming to Hong Kong to represent the Museum in cultural exchange programs with leading Hong Kong art organizations.

Special Exhibition by the Hong Kong Museum of Art
The mission of the Hong Kong Museum of Art is to recognize and promote local artistic talent, and to enhance public knowledge and appreciation of art. The Museum will introduce award-winning art works from the Hong Kong Contemporary Art Biennial Award 2009; the “The Prosperous Cities: A Selection of Paintings from the Liaoning Provincial Museum” exhibition; and highlights of donations from Museum patrons.

In particular, two donations from the Friends of the Hong Kong Museum of Art will be displayed: the mixed media installation “Floating Reeds” by the Shanghai-born, New York-based sculptor Ming Fay and “Artificial Landscape Series” by the well-known Hong Kong photographer Almond Chu.
