Event description

Description

Irene Chou (1924-2011) was one of Hong Kong’s foremost artists of the later 20th century and a key figure in the New Ink Art movement in Hong Kong. Born in Shanghai, and a journalist in her early life, she came to Hong Kong in 1949 and began painting in the 1950’s. Her interest in blending tradition with modernity, shared with other artists of the New Ink Art movement, led to her developing a highly original abstract visual language and her exploration of diverse themes in her work.

The Asia Society, with the support of The Hong Kong Jockey Club, is showing over 40 of Irene Chou’s works in the first major retrospective since the artist passed away. The exhibition, which runs until 5 January 2020, is the third in the Asia Society’s exhibition series, “20th Century Chinese Female Artists”.

Our tour of the exhibition will be guided by Lesley Ma, curator of Ink Art at M+.
