Commemorating its 60th anniversary this year, the world-renowned Min Chiu Society, formed by a group of art collectors in Hong Kong, has been an important cultural force devoted to fostering intellectual exchange and collecting, studying and promoting Chinese art. Guided by its founding ethos - "an earnest pursuit of classic knowledge, with a passion for antiquity" - the Society's art collections are eclectic, ranging from Chinese paintings and calligraphy, ceramics, jade, glass, lacquer wares, carvings in bamboo and wood, furniture, textiles, snuff bottles as well as China Trade arts. This year, the Society has co-organised the exhibition "Honouring Tradition and Heritage: Min Chiu Society at Sixty" together with Hong Kong Museum of Art, showcasing over 300 works of art from the collections of Society members.
We are honoured that HERMES Live was entrusted by HKMoA once again to provide high quality and professional live streaming service for the virtual tour, to explore the stories behind the art works and to appreciate the artistic craftsmanship with the online audiences.
