「流變」作爲創造性的隱喻。

可以說,「流變的狀態」是與視覺藝術實踐緊密相關的概念 – 在一個新的方向或行動確立之前的一種不肯定的狀態。這既可以指個人創作實踐的動態,也可以指一間院校的活力。在視覺藝術教育上,這是十分正面的要素,也是過程裏邁向轉變和進步的指標。

對一間步向成功的藝術院校來說,在擁抱未來以前,承認過去的價值尤為重要。視覺藝術院成立十週年,我們不斷融入新構思、新方案、新方式,致力在視覺藝術上提供最好的教育。

十年的發展,都反映在我們畢業生的質素以及他們在專業所獲取的成功及成就上。是次展覽SHIFT展示了視覺藝術院重視的價值,以及彰顯優秀作品所傳遞的獨特創意、新思維及新成果。

FLUX as creative metaphor.

It could be said that a characteristic associated with visual art practice is the concept of being in a “state of flux” – a state of uncertainty preceding the establishment of a new direction or action. This can refer to the dynamics of individual creative practices as well as an institutional position. In terms of visual arts education these are seen as positive indicators of change and progression in the creative process.

Acknowledging the value of what has gone before while embracing what is coming next is vital to the future success of an art school. Academy of Visual Arts (AVA) is in an exciting period of development in its 10th anniversary year, new ideas, new approaches and new ways of providing the best education available in the Visual Arts are currently progressing strongly.

These developments are mirrored in the quality of our graduates and their considerable achievements and success in professional development. The exhibition SHIFT reveals the qualities that AVA values and promotes through the presentation of excellent examples of individual creative approaches, ideas and outcomes.
