A new round of exhibition at M+ Pavilion named ‘In Search of Southeast Asia through the M+ Collections’ has officially opened last week. A day before its public opening, I went the press review and the opening banquet.
Half of the internship has quickly passed. Besides the repetition of work and daily life, simultaneously there were some interesting and funny episodes which happened with the visitors, highlighted our days in the venue.
Another month in WKCDA, I was exposed to various intern activities and gained insights from different authorities in the Authority. I have a feel of transformation from an outsider to an insider. As the time goes on, I can vision the WKCD will be a pivotal cultural and arts hub of Hong Kong.
I believe everyone has a travel buddy, be it a person or a pet, or simply a best friend like Mr Bean’s Teddy. For me, my buddy is Gumgum, a tiny yellow bunny. (OK…slightly larger than tiny) Gumgum traveled extensively with me across continents and we have explored half of the globe together. Like any of our previous voyages, Gumgum has been tagged along after me during this 6-week long internship in Venice, Italy.
Having spent several weeks in the pavilion, I have gotten a pretty good feel for the types of visitors that enter through our doors: The experienced art critic, the hyperactive child, the gelato-eating tourist (with melted gelato trickling down their hand, threatening to drip onto the pavilion floor) who is then unfortunately turned away from the exhibit…. but hey, who can resist the sweet satisfaction of a cold gelato on a hot summer day?
What is your impression of working in WKCDA? Full of art-lover? Or everyone working here has strong art knowledge? I would say joining WKCDA allows me to be a step near to arts and cultural industry and to be more curious about arts.
