Creating Across Cultures: Women in the Arts
Update 2/11: Due to unforeseen circumstances, Michelle Vosper is unable to attend this year’s Festival. Appearing in her stead will be Choi Yan Chi, one of Hong Kong’s veteran artists and the first to pioneer installation art in the city; the playwright Candace Chong; and moderator Eva Man, Hong Kong’s most distinguished scholar of women’s studies.
Michelle Vosper talks about her new collection of stories Creating Across Cultures: Women in the Arts, which celebrates visionary women from China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan who are defying cultural and social expectations to follow their artistic aspirations. From literary figure Nieh Hualing and dance icon Yang Meiqi, to bold contemporary artists Yin Xiuzhen and Lulu Shur-tzy Hou, this book reveals the vibrancy of literary, visual and performing arts by women in the region. Eva Man moderates.
