    The exhibits come in a variety of formats, such as micro-movie, photography, animation, multimedia installation and more.
     
    About 100 pieces of creative works by over 200 students of the Open University of Hong Kong (OUHK) will be showcased at their annual Graduation Show, which runs from today until 25 June.

    Jointly organized by the graduating students of the four Creative Arts programmes, the theme of the Graduation Show this year is "PLUS_". While the word “PLUS” signifies their ambition in adding colour and vitality to the community through arts, the symbol underscore “_” implies continuity. In other words, graduation is not the end but the beginning of a brand new chapter in life.

    An Opening Ceremony cum Screening was held tonight (22 June) at the OUHK Jockey Club Campus. Officiating at the Ceremony were the Convenor of the Non-official Members of the Executive Council and Honorary Graduate of the OUHK The Hon Bernard Charnwut Chan; Legislative Councilor (Sports, Performing Arts, Culture and Publication) The Hon Ma Fung-kwok; Permanent Secretary for Home Affairs Mrs Cherry Tse Ling Kit-ching; cross-media creator Ms Kearen Pang; President of the OUHK Prof. Yuk-Shan Wong; Vice President (Academic) of the OUHK Prof. Reggie Kwan Ching-ping; Vice President (Administration & Development) of the OUHK Prof. Tong Chong-sze; Dean of the OUHK School of Arts and Social Sciences Prof. Charles Kwong Che-leung; and Chairman of the Organizing Committee of the OUHK Graduation Show of Creative Arts Ms Ivy Tiu Man.

    Addressing the ceremony, Prof. Yuk-Shan Wong commended the outstanding achievement of the students for their efforts in the final year projects. Prof. Wong said that many students from the OUHK’s Creative Arts programmes have bagged prestigious local and international awards over the past few years. “Everyone at the University is thrilled with the students’ achievements which have demonstrated their creativity, talents and efforts. One outstanding example is the three graduates from the 2017 Animation and Visual Effects programme who have won the 54th Golden Horse Awards for Best Animated Short Film with their final year project Losing Sight of a Longed Place. This is an exceptional achievement which shows professional recognition of our students’ work from experts in the industry,” Prof. Wong added. He encouraged the students to always keep up their creative spirit and motivation even after graduation.

    The Graduation Show features graduation projects of students in the Bachelor’s degree programmes in Creative Writing and Film Arts, Animation and Visual Effects, Cinematic Design and Photographic Digital Art, and Creative Advertising and Media Design. The exhibits come in a variety of formats, such as novel and creative writing, photography, animation, experimental film, micro-movie, multimedia installation, 3D installation art and more.

    Some of the highlights include: a documentary titled Art 8 (project by a Creative Writing and Film Arts student) which shows how four persons with intellectual disabilities learnt to express themselves through creating their own pieces of art work; a short animation titled Kin’s Hair (project by Animation and Visual Effects students) which depicts the collective memories and cultural identity of Hong Kong people in the post-handover era; a jellyfish-like installation titled Nothingness Syndrome (project by a Cinematic Design and Photographic Digital Art student) which explores the concept of Nihilism; and an advertising campaign for a local capsule hotel titled SLEEEP TO RECHARGE (project by Creative Advertising and Media Design students) which promotes the importance of quality sleep.

    In addition, seminars and exchange sessions will be held on 23 June (Saturday) and 24 June (Sunday). Local creators and artists including film director of Mad World Mr Wong Chun, film director of In Your Dreams Ms Tam Wai-ching, and renowned lyricist Mr Riley Lam will be invited to share their views on various cultural topics. There will also be screening sessions during the same weekend, where a wide range of videos and short films created by the students will be shown.
