AAA Resident: Kurt Chan Yuk Keung
|When||Sep 2016–Jun 2017|
Asia Art Archive welcomes Kurt Chan Yuk Keung as our educator-in-residence.
Questioning the goals and values of Hong Kong’s current educational system, Chan’s work explores alternatives for marginalised students. For his residency, he examines the curriculum of the Hong Kong Diploma for Secondary Education, and explores how art studies might encourage personal development and creative thinking for students with various interests, abilities, and life goals. He also engages front-line teachers, students, artists, cultural and creative practitioners, and the AAA team in the process.
Kurt Chan Yuk Keung obtained his BA from the Department of Fine Arts, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, and his MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art. He has participated in over 100 exhibitions, including the 51st Venice Biennale and the 2nd Asia Pacific Triennial. Chan was the chief editor for Hong Kong Visual Arts Yearbook for several years, and taught at The Chinese University of Hong Kong for over 25 years. He is now a board member of Para Site Art Space and the Hong Kong Institute of Aesthetic Education, and an advisor of Asia Art Archive and the Yale-China Association.
