'Over ten years have gone by since the Hong Kong Visual Arts Yearbook was launched in 2000. Bilingual in Chinese and English, it is the most comprehensive annalistic toolbook for Hong Kong Visual Arts, with the aid of photos.
'The Yearbook is composed of two sections, "Essays" and "Chronicles;" the former is made up of essays by academic experts who draw comprehensive commentaries while focusing on selective local visual arts events; while the latter gathers and catalogues all types of visual arts events of the year. One is subjective observation and analysis on a broad scope, while the other is microscopic listing of objective data; both are interdependent on as well as complementary to each other.' (Front Flap)
The 'Chronicles' section covers the visual arts activities happened in or related to Hong Kong in multiple facets, including public issues, publications, exhibitions, talks and symposiums, awards, auctions and education. This book features the part of public issues only. For the online version of all the above topics, please visit: www.hkvisualartsyearbook.org
