The HKU Museum Society is delighted to organise a visit to the studio of artist Elizabeth Briel at the Jockey Club Creative Arts Centre in Shek Kip Mei. During the tour, she will share insights on her artistic practice that has brought her crisscrossing the world.
Elizabeth was born in California (1974). Her prints, paintings, and installations begin with materials imbued with meaning—papers devastated by a typhoon or made of military uniforms, paints of bone and lead—and frequently incorporate architectural elements. She received a BFA in Painting from the University of Minnesota, has exhibited on four continents, and has been awarded fellowships or residencies from China Exploration and Research Society (Shangri-la), Universiti Sains Malaysia (Penang), and Grabart (Barcelona). Briel has lived, worked and traveled in Hong Kong since 2006, where she runs EBriel Studio in HK’s JC Creative Arts Centre.
