About the Museum

Among the region’s most important cultural forums, the Asia Society Hong Kong Center (ASHKC) features an active programme of lectures, performances and films that present an informed engagement with Asian history, society, politics, economics, culture and the arts. ASHKC also works closely with local institutions to bring acclaimed exhibitions of Asian art to the city. These have included “Treasures of Asian Art: Selections from the Mr and Mrs John D. Rockefeller Collection,” “Inside Out: New Chinese Art” and “Vietnam Behind the Lines: Images from the War 1965-1975.” John D. Rockefeller, III founded The Asia Society in 1956 to promote mutual understanding and strengthen partnerships among the people, leaders and institutions of Asia and the United States. Of the Society’s eleven centres, Hong Kong – founded in 1990 by local community leaders – is the first located outside the U.S., and among the most influential worldwide.

Never End: The Art and Life of Gaylord Chan

Date: 19 June 2024 - 29 September 2024
Time: Tuesday to Sunday, 11am to 6pm
Venue: Chantal Miller Gallery

Gaylord Chan (1925-2020) was a prominent Hong Kong artist who only formally began his painting career in his 40s, developing a unique, youthful, and iconographic mode of abstract painting that he continued into digital art in his later years. Chan was also a beloved teacher, basing his pedagogy off his own experiences as a painter and shaping the next generation of Hong Kong artists. Never End includes a selection of paintings, rarely exhibited digital drawings, and newly organized archival materials that pay tribute to the artist’s art, life, and ongoing legacy. The exhibition is guest curated by Joyce Hei-ting Wong with Josephine Chow as Exhibition Consultant and Hain Yoon as Assistant Curator. With support provided by Hong Kong Arts Development Council, Virginia and Wellington Yee, Ms. Yang Mun Tak Marjorie, Rita and KC Kung, and Mystic Island Winery.
