'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, 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.

'於2000年初次出版,至今已逾十載。中英文雙語印行,圖文並茂。為迄今最全面的香港視覺藝術編年工具書。 分為「專題論述」和「視藝記事」兩大部分,編集全年本地藝術家於本地及海外的視藝活動,並結合學者專家的分析論文:一為宏觀主觀的觀察陳述;一為微觀客觀的數據縷述,兩者互相依存,互為補充。' (摘錄自書皮瓣) 「視藝記事」部分列出有關香港視覺藝術的公眾議題、論著、展覧、講座及研討會、獎項、和教育。此書只收錄公眾議題一類別,其餘類別均為網上版,請參閱:www.hkvisualartsyearbook.org
