  • 2020

  • The Culture Promotion Committee of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) strives to provide an enriching campus ambience that fosters cross-cultural encounters and exchange among our students. Since its establishment in 1999, the Committee has presented an Artist-in-Residence (AIR) Programme every year. Artists from many different genres of art have been invited. The AIR Programmes create interactive experiences between artists and participants, enhancing the University community's knowledge of the featured art form in an interesting manner. This year we are honoured to present Dr Liza Wang, who has accomplished outstanding achievements in Hong Kong's art scene, as our Artist-in-Residence. In the Cantonese Opera: Beyond Tradition Exhibition, the finale event of the AIR Programme, we shall see evidence of Dr Wang's perseverance when she first took up the art of Cantonese opera, and how she did not shy away from difficulties but rather dedicated herself to the continuation, transformation and innovation of the Cantonese opera tradition. Dr Wang is certainly the leading advocate who has helped Cantonese opera live on today.

    香港理工大學文化推廣委員會自1999年起舉辦「駐校藝術家計劃」,每年邀請來自不同藝術範疇的頂尖藝術家一同設計各類藝術文化節目,與學生直接交流。本年度喜獲在香港藝壇有卓越成就的汪明荃博士擔任駐校藝術家,本校師生同寅深感榮幸。這次計劃的壓軸節目「弘揚戲曲『荃』承創新」展覽,我們能窺見汪博士多年來,如何以無比的堅持和毅力,全情投入粵劇的藝海,迎難而上,百折不回,為粵劇藝術的傳承、振興及創新,盡心盡力。今天粵劇得以「活」下去, 汪博士實在是當中的重要推手。
