Each year we hold a special reception where existing Friends members welcome our New members to the Friends community. This year Dr Josh Yiu, the director of the CUHK Art Museum has kindly agreed to be our guest speaker at this event.
Josh graduated in Oriental Studies from Oxford University and is an internationally known speaker having recently given talks at Yale University, University of Chicago, the British Museum and Asia House in London. We are thrilled to have him speak at our New members Welcome Party.
Josh’s primary focus is Chinese Art including contemporary and classical paintings, ancient sculptures and ceramics. During this talk he will provide an overview of CUHK’s Art Museum and discuss memorable art acquisitions, some of which were made possible by us, the Friends of the Art Museum.
I hope you can join us on September 19th to help welcome our New Members into the Friends of the Art Museum fold, and enjoy this very popular gathering.
