陈天灼首次在中国以外的个人艺术展览获得空前成功，在6月22日举行的开幕晚会中包括了舞台式的艺术表演，并吸引了多于5,000名观众的参与。陈天灼一直被誉为这一代最优秀的中国当代艺术家之一；这次由K11 Art Foundation及巴黎东京宫联合举办的陈天灼个人展览更是对年轻的陈天灼作出一个肯定。K11 Art Foundation与巴黎东京宫均视培育和推动年轻新晋艺术家为其目标，并于去年签订了三年的合作计划；而是次展览是双方自展览《中国内部- 巨人之内》后的第二次合作。陈天灼不但勇敢地创作一系列震撼人心的艺术品，还通过色彩、不安的场景和掀动情感的手法把其哲学思想传达给观众，从而探索真实和神化理念的关系。
期待已久的《Cinematheque》终於开幕了！与Leo Xu Projects共同策划的陈维及程然个人展览已於星期一(16 March 2015)开放，而开幕礼则於星期二(17 March 2015)顺利举办了。到访的宾客纷纷讨论著这些由两位艺术家所创作的新媒体及影片作品，这确是一个非传统的展览。陈维的「The Drunken Dancehall」让人不禁跃动起来，配合程然的音乐表演令人们情绪更高昂。是次展览让观众理解中国年轻新锐艺术家在其艺术语言中对影像、空间、表演等媒介所做的革新和实验。
K11 Art Foundation and CAFAM’s first collaboration was the CAFAM Future exhibition held from January to March in Beijing, and it will be coming to Hong Kong in May and then Shanghai! As it is approaching, we have invited three artists out of over 90 artists to share their work and experiences with us. Michelle Lee, representative of 1a space, also one of the institution nominators, first shared her opinion on the reason these three 80s artists were chosen. The artists, Ko Sin Tung, Mak Ying Tung and Kingsley Ng, shared some of their work and also their experiences in art. Each of them have very unique works and style, giving us a preview of CAFAM Future. We were amused by their amazing work.
KAF & CAFAM reached a three-year strategic cooperation agreement
In order to encourage young Chinese artists, KAF inaugurated a three-year collaboration with CAFAM, hoping to nurture the emerging artists through developments, research, exhibitions and more. The collaboration starts with opening of the 2nd CAFAM FUTURE exhibition on 15 January, in which the agreement was successfully signed in CAFAM on 7 January.

Art Talk – Panel Discussion: Cross Over Collaboration – Art & Tech
Technology and art were originally individual mediums, but now they are inseparable. Our speakers Ellen Pau, Isaac Leung and Samson Young, all with different background but also good at incorporating technology into art. Isaac Leung particularly gave examples of recent political issues in Hong Kong to address the importance of internet in influencing the public. The speakers have also fully investigated the future potential of art and tech collaboration. The moderator, Jason Li, have provided some engaging topics for the speakers to discuss about. With Samson Young’s example of his performance, The Anatomy of a String Quartet, they explained that the idea of collaborating art and tech is the act of putting something together that were not supposed to be seen together and it is the way to reach out to a wider audience in this digitally driven society.
Art Talk – Panel Discussion: Cross Over Collaboration – Art & Performance
There has been an explosion of interest in performance art in recent years, our speakers this time, Cosmin Costinas, the Executive Director of Para Site; Mathieu Borysevicz who traveled from Shanghai, the founder of MABSOCIETY, and Ingrid Chu as the moderator, have discussed how performance and art is highly correlated and provided the audience insights of different kind of performances apart from the traditional dance or theatrical performances. Cosmin expands on this conversation using his past works done in Para Site to bring out the idea that performance is a manifestation of visual arts. Mathieu mentioned that the audience who engage in social media is actually performing themselves by simply sharing content in the digital platform.
This December, the curators, Hitomi Hasegawa, Qinyi Lim and Robin Peckham, inaugurated the K11 Art Foundation Art Talk series held in Chi art space, Hong Kong. This panel of leading voices in the field investigated curators’ work in a public space context. Despite the growing demand in public art, questions come up with how to ensure art in public space can reach their target audiences and how not to affect the public space and the general audience. Hitomi, the Director of Moving Image Archive of Contemporary Art (MIACA), introduced an art project that was done on the streets in Japan that almost faced legal charges. Qinyi Lim, a curator of Para Site, has analysed different dynamics of public art. Robin Peckham, the Deputy Editor of “LEAP”, has recently curated the Tianzhuo Chen WAWADOLL IS X’MAS DATA solo exhibition at K11 Art Mall that brought a more in-depth discussion between him and the other speakers.
[Inside China | 由来]「Inside China – L’Intérieur du Géant」由东京宫的策展人Jo-ey Tang及K11 Art Foundation推荐的王春辰共同策展。为合作促成此项目，Jo-ey Tang于2014年走遍大中华区的十个城市，包括香港、武汉、上海及北京等，探讨当代艺术现况，发掘有潜质的新晋当代艺术家。其间发现一批艺术家以突显城市过量生产问题为题，反映城市短暂而急促的发展状态。最后挑选五位作品风格各异的艺术家，以不同媒介的艺术创作呈现中国的多元面貌。
