Guided Tour: Sai Kung Hoi Arts Festival Joy Again, Isle with Alan Cheung
The HKU Museum Society is pleased to organize a guided tour to Sai Kung Hoi Arts Festival Joy Again, Isle with Alan Cheung, Co-founder and Managing Director of One Bite Design Studio, Curator for the Arts Festival.
Built upon the successful implementation of the three-year Yim Tin Tsai Festival in 2021, the Sai Kung Hoi Arts Festival 2022 has expanded beyond Yim Tim Tsai to include Sharp Island, Kau Sai Chau and High Island. Themed “Joy Again, Isle”, the Arts Festival continues to showcase collaborations amongst local and non-local artists, youngsters and villagers. Yim Tim Tsai and the surrounding islands will turn into an “open museum” again, blending the rich history, local culture, heritage, and natural environment of Sai Kung Hoi with artworks.
The opening edition starts with Yim Tin Tsai and Sharp Island. Our guided tour will visit art installations at these two locations. Artists are invited to create artworks with themes like village stories, balance of rural and urban development, ecological conservation, and cultural inheritance. We will enjoy a casual lunch by the waters at Chef de Yim Tin which will open especially for us on their day off.
