Paris-Chinese Paintings; Ko Sin-tung and Mak Ying-tung at Gallery EXIT, Lorin Maazel Tribute; Painte 00:21:55 2014-07-16
During the 20th century Paris, was considered one of the world’s leading artistic centres. And among those who flocked there from all over the world, were many of the greatest Chinese artists of the past 100 years, as the exhibition Paris - Chinese Painting at the HK Museum of Art shows.

At Gallery Exit until the 25th July you have the chance to see two exhibitions for the price of one: Mak Ying Tung’s "Almost Empty" and Ko Sin Tung's “A Closed Room”.

Last year, we were lucky enough to meet Lorin Maazel who was here to conduct performances of music by Richard Wagner and Benjamin Britten, as well as his own “Ring Without Words”. Maestro Maazel was planning to embark on a series of projects with the Hong Kong Philharmonic. There was plenty to look forward to, but on Sunday, at the age of 84, Lorin Maazel died of complications from pneumonia at his home in Virginia.

Most visual art is about creating a finished object that will then be displayed and communicate its message to viewers. New York-based American artist Jeremy Everett doesn’t try to do that. In his work he wants to present pieces that may not appear completely finished in a traditional sense. Many are still changing, still in a state of evolution. Or is it decay? The Edouard Malingue Gallery is currently showing a solo exhibition of Jeremy’s work: “No Exit.”

On the day of our show, French harpist Isabelle Moretti is at the amphitheatre of the Academy for Performing Arts, performing music by Debussy, Tournier, and Liszt. Before that, she’s here in our studio.
