University Museum & Art Gallery, The University of Hong Kong
An afternoon of sharing by artist Makoto Fujimura on the QU4RTETS paintings created in parallel to the spirit and method of T. S. Eliot’s Four Quartets. Discussion will centre on the process behind the artistic, intellectual and spiritual journeys between Fujimura and the other artists, with the poem - in their search for recalibration and comfort amidst tragedies through the embrace of Christian literary and theological tradition.
The QU4RTETS exhibition presents four sets of paintings by Makoto Fujimura and Bruce Herman, as part of an ongoing artistic collaboration in word, image and music, with composer Christopher Theofanidis and theologian Jeremy Begbie inspired by T. S. Eliot’s Four Quartets.
Sponsored by SinoArt, “QU4RTETS Exhibition: Meet the Artist” begins a dialogue between NGOs and art ambassadors in Hong Kong with international artist Makoto Fujimura.
The session will be conducted in English, with Cantonese translation.
