The Faith and Global Engagement Initiative at HKU and International Arts Movement (Hong Kong Chapter) are organising a series of art programs in Hong Kong from September 4 to 22.
The program is a three week line-up of exhibitions, performances, and talks engaging art, faith, and humanity. The title, The Still Point, is inspired by the first quartet, “Burnt Norton” in T. S. Eliot’s Four Quartets – one of the most seminal works of the twentieth century.
The program consists of a touring presentation of the foreign artistic group QU4RTETS and showcases works by artists in Hong Kong. The QU4RTETS began when the artists Makoto Fujimura and Bruce Herman, composer Christopher Theofanidis, and theologian Jeremy Begbie were seeking to find a living voice through Eliot’s words to guide them through their experiences of personal devastation caused by a house fire and post–911 disorientation.
The three week program brings us exhibitions, lecture, talks, concerts, dance performances and much more.
