'Both art appreciation and criticism in context and art making are integral learning strands of the Visual Arts curriculum. The book is issued to support schools to implement the learning activities of art appreciation and criticism. Several eminent scholars and research practitioners are invited to write for the series, and provide knowledge of art appreciation and criticism.

Understanding Hong Kong Art through Culture analyses the contextual factors, which influenced the evolution of Hong Kong art from historical, social, cultural and economic perspectives. The topics explored in this part include: the effects of Chinese, Western and local cultures, and globalisation on the evolution of Hong Kong art; and the relationship between some local socio-cultural phenomena, such as the exploration of cultural identity, and art.' - excerpted from foreword.

Including a list of artworks.
