The Hong Kong Jockey Club Presents – A World Within: The Art and Inspiration of Irene Chou
Exhibition period: 25 September 2019 – 5 January 2020

Asia Society Hong Kong Center is a leading educational organisation dedicated to promoting mutual understanding and strengthening partnerships among peoples, leaders and institutions of Asia and the United States in a global context.

The Hong Kong Jockey Club Presents – A World Within: The Art and Inspiration of Irene Chou is the third instalment in ASHK’s “20th Century Chinese Female Artist Series.” One of the most inventive artists at the forefront of Hong Kong’s New Ink Painting Movement, Irene Chou (1924—2011) had a dynamic career spanning from the 1950s to early 2000s. She was remarkable for paving new possibilities in Chinese ink painting through a highly original abstract visual language, and her exploration of modern themes informed by metaphysics, science, religion and literature, as well as her personal outlook on life. With over 40 works, this exhibition traces Chou’s artistic trajectory and considers her historical significance in the first major thematic survey since the artist’s passing.
