In order to celebrate the closings of “Louis Vuitton: A Passion For Creation,” and the four Open Dialog exhibitions in Hong Kong Museum of Art, C&G Artpartment collaborates with artist Luke Ching to put up the current exhibit: “C&G: A Passion For Creation.” Spending the leftover from the budget of “HK$5,900,000,” this exhibit has been prepared for more than two days and is completely funded by taxpayers (two representatives of the local taxpayers). It consists of many masterpieces. Besides those exhibited in the LV show, like works about Richard Prince, Takashi Murakami, Gilbert & George, we also have works about Damien Hirst, Tom Friedmen, Jaspar Johns, Pierre et Gilles, Marina Abramovic, Yves Klein… etc. and masterpieces like “Going to School during the Qing-Ming Festival” and the long lost sculpture from “Yuen Ming Yuen.” The architectural model of “Woofer Ten Art Museum” will also be displayed to the public for the first time. With the crossover of fashion and the “Artwork On Loan” project, the “Aftermath” fashion series will be on show … the estimated number of visitors is about 180,000.
C & G and Art
C&G Artpartment Foundation has a two-year-long history, same as the LV art foundation. C&G Artpartment has both an art gallery and a visual art education unit. It has a close link with the art world in all these years and is a pioneer of the art of filling up cracks in the current art scene. Working closely with the mass media, C&G uses art to respond to social and cultural issues, and has developed a unique aesthetic philosophy.
The arrival of Clara Cheung as artistic director in 2007 reinforced C&G’s ties with artists, notably through exemplary collaborations with Gum Cheng, Law Man-Lok and Luke Ching.
In Hong Kong, C&G brings this exciting story of life illustrating the creative process through installations combining works of art and archive documents.
