The Hong Kong International Literary Festival

Creating Across Cultures: Women in the Arts

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.

華敏臻將會談及她的新書《創作無界:中國、香港、澳門和台灣的女藝術家》,當中結集了兩岸四地從事藝文界的女性的故事及願景。她們顛覆了社會及文化一向的概念,成為藝文界的領軍人物。從文學作家聶華苓到著名舞者陽美琦;從國際知名藝術家尹秀珍到概念藝術家兼攝影師侯淑姿,華敏臻的新著作顯示當代女藝術家如何在各個藝術領域大放異彩。Eva Man將主持對話。
