Hong Kong Palace Museum kicks off its pre-opening public engagement programmes with a preview booth at Fine Art Asia 2019. The booth is divided into three thematic sections titled ‘Viewing’, ‘Travelling’, and ‘Living’. These themes were inspired by the renowned eleventh-century Chinese painter Guo Xi (c.1001-1090), who wrote, 'There are landscapes that people could view, travel through, and live in.' In this preview, the ‘Viewing’ section features the elegant and grand architecture of the Palace Museum in Beijing and the design of the Hong Kong Palace Museum which embraces the site’s natural beauty. The ‘Travelling’ section invites you to discover the beauty of Hong Kong’s landscape and understand the notion of ‘blankness’, using aesthetics and perspectives in Chinese traditional landscape paintings. In this section, images of Hong Kong’s cityscape and art objects from the imperial court are juxtaposed. The ‘Living’ section presents calligraphic works by emperors of the Qing dynasty (1644–1911) alongside works by the prominent Hong Kong–based Sinologist Prof. Jao Tsung-i (1917-2018). Let us explore together these artistic traditions and their resonance in our lives today.

The booth features a lively dialogue between traditional art and technology and between the past and the present. Accompanying programmes include a panel discussion with leading art experts, a talk, a dance performance, and a number of workshops.
