The Recultivation of CultureAn Exhibition of Creative Script Hand Lettering

To promote the development of local cultural and creative industries and to enrich the citizens’ cultural life, Institute for Tourism Studies (IFT) has scheduled to hold The “Recultivation of Culture: An Exhibition of Creative Script Hand Lettering” at the Team Building of IFT from 28 July to 31 October 2017. During the exhibition, creative script hand lettering works by the teacher and the students will be displayed. The general public are invited to appreciate the charm of script calligraphy and creative ways of using script hand lettering.

 

IFT has devoted a lot of effort to promote and develop cultural and creative industries. In addition to providing diversified courses, in 2016, the Institute launched the “Script Calligraphy” course, inviting well-known Macao calligrapher and lettering artist Henry Kwok to be the instructor.

 

Through organising this exhibition, 65 works by instructor Henry Kwok and his students will be displayed. The displayed works celebrated one of the most original forms of communication for highlighting the brilliance of the written word. It also reminded the audiences of the traditional form of communication by simply writing on a paper with a pen instead of texting on a keyboard or touchscreen.

 

IFT has always endeavoured to promote the local cultural industries. Aside from constantly offering diverse cultural and creative courses, we have also actively cooperated with local artists and designers in recent years, holding different types of exhibitions to promote local creations to society and provide a display platform for the local artists and designers.

 

Artist Statement

 

Travel back in time when words are hand written and not type written, when the culture of conveying a message is not enough, it must also convey a feeling.

 

Modern communication is very convenient, useful and fast, but it’s also cold, lack formality and doesn’t have much character. It’s like receiving an e-card compare to a signed Christmas card.

 

Luckily, the interest in regaining the human touch in writing is coming back, just like vinyl records, it’s coming back slowly and steadily. This exhibition is the living proof, as it is a collection of works by many students and selected works of the teacher.

 

Some of the students just want to reacquaint themselves with writing and for some, get to learn how to write for the first time. All are surprised and what can be achieved in a short period of time.

 

Please support the recultivation of culture, help recapture the past and rebuild our humanity.

Next time when you have to write a note, use a pen.

 

As nothing is more endearing than a handwritten note.

 

Artist Bio

 

Henry Kwok graduated from Utah State University and after graduation worked as an art director in member agencies of the American Association of Advertising Agencies (4A’s) in New York. While he is studying in university and working in advertising agencies in New York, he never stopped studying and learning about different forms of lettering especially script lettering and always trying to find practical use for the art form.

 

After working in New York he has taught design, advertising, typography, script and psychedelic lettering for 18 years, in Macau.

 

Also, during that time, he has organized free, after school lettering classes for the students. Presently, he is holding classes and workshops at many organizations.

 

Henry have completed and published several books, some are of his own work and some with students under his supervision and art direction.

More Than Just Text” Exhibition of Book Layout & Design Works by Joaquim Cheong and his Students

 

In order to promote the development of local cultural and creative industries and to enrich the citizens’ cultural life, we have scheduled to hold the “More Than Just Text” Exhibition of Book Layout & Design Works by Joaquim Cheong and his Students at the Team Building of IFT from 31 March to 30 June 2017. During the exhibition, multiple posters and layout designs by the teacher and the students will be displayed. The general public are invited to appreciate how the teacher and the students transform the design element of “texts” into infinite possibilities.

 

In order to nurture local design talents and to promote the development of cultural and creative industries, IFT launched the “Books and Layout Design” and “Poster Designer Creation Series - Typography Poster Design” courses in 2012, inviting experienced Macao designer Joaquim Cheong to be the instructor. Every time during his lesson, Mr. Cheong would say this to his students, “Words are not words, but convertible images; books are not books, but spaces for communication among people.” He inspires students not to be bounded by the innate form of words, and tap into their creativity to transform the words into a myriad of images to be reasonably displayed in media like books and posters. Through these works, this exhibition also hopes to bring some new ideas about words to the audience.

 

Through organising this exhibition, IFT is going to display 56 works by instructor Joaquim Cheong and his students. The displayed works have flexibly applied the design theories and concepts taught in the courses, using the dots, lines, planes, text and shapes in graphic design and adopting the techniques of size, weight, rhythm, contrast, balance and gradation to demonstrate the visual effects of layout and poster design, thereby fully displaying the creative thinking of the students.

 

IFT has always endeavoured to promote the local cultural industries. Aside from constantly offering diverse cultural and creative courses, we have also actively cooperated with local artists and designers in recent years, holding different types of exhibitions to promote local creations to society and provide a display platform for the local artists and designers.

Magical Macao.

The 2014 conference in this series took place in the remote and windswept islands of Shetland, Scotland. The 2015 conference moves across the globe to the tropical island city-state of Macao, a special administrative region of China and the most densely populated territory on Earth (nearly 600,000 people in just 30 km²).

 

On 23-25 March, delegates will speak with local tradition bearers in Macao and visit sites of legendary and religious significance. The Historic Centre of Macao World Heritage Site – a living mix of Chinese and Portuguese colonial cultural influences – is home to numerous Catholic, Taoist, and Buddhist shrines, churches, and temples. Yet move away from central Macao’s busy markets and winding alleys, and you will come to temples of capital and consumerism: for Macao – called the ‘Las Vegas of the East’ – is also the site of some of the world’s largest and most glamorous casinos, where tourists engage in different traditions of the supernatural.

 

On 26-27 March, delegates will have the chance to give academic presentations in association with the conference The Supernatural in Literature and Film. Presentations will be hosted at the Institute for Tourism Studies.

 

On 28 March, delegates can participate in a post-conference tour of beautiful Coloane Island, Macao.

 

Attendance at the conference is open to all interested individuals.
