《香港賽馬會呈獻 -春之歌:潘玉良在巴黎》為「二十世紀中國女藝術家系列」第二個展覽,亦是香港首個大型潘玉良(1895-1977)的個人展覽,。潘氏出身貧苦,成長於五四運動變革時期,是首批前往法國學習藝術的中國學生之一。有別於同期留學西方後,返國開展藝術生涯的中國藝術家,她從1930年代直至逝世前都選擇馳騁於競爭激烈的巴黎藝術界。是次展覽將呈獻逾六十件肖像、裸體、風景、舞蹈人物繪畫及雕塑,展覽將探索潘氏第二度赴法時期的創作及融會中西情感的獨特風格。展覽由客席策展人易凱策展,並由黃熙婷助理策展。

歡迎大家在社交平台上分享展覽的體驗,記得加上 #ASHKPanyulin, #ASHKPanyuliang, #SongofSpring, #PanyulininParis, or #20CenturyChineseFemaleArtists的標記。

關於系列

現代社會的女權和平等,從上一世紀以來一直是極具爭議的話題。近年來,儘管有才華的女性在不同領域上的成就較以往多了注目, 但眾多社會上的女藝術家代表性仍然不足,她們仍然未能得到充分讚譽,這情況在各個中國社區更為明顯。

然而,二十世紀中國女性藝術家的出現卻印證了中國社會的進步,同時也為經歷戰爭和災難這複雜歷史背景下的現代添上了新的定義。社會上的女性代表一方面備受爭議,另一方面則為當時大眾傳媒所追捧,這意識形態的力量在今天仍然存在。學術研究和展覽界別的注意力往往集中在現代中國男性藝術家身上, 以一個時代的女藝術家創意成就和影響力為題的展覽極為罕有,更鮮有以女藝術家個人為專題的展覽 。

亞洲協會香港中心於2017年推出二十世紀中國女藝術家系列 (「系列」),以爭取將女藝術家的故事發揚光大。 希望透過向香港觀眾展示她們重要的藝術成就,以提升公眾對她們的認知,令她們對中國現代作出的貢獻得以表揚。

現正展出的《春之歌:潘玉良在巴黎》為系列的第二個展覽。展覽承蒙香港賽馬會慈善信託基金的獨家贊助及支持,這亦是中國女畫家潘玉良(1895-1977)

關於展覽

《春之歌:潘玉良在巴黎》為系列的第二個展覽。展覽承蒙香港賽馬會慈善信託基金的獨家贊助及支持,這亦是中國女畫家潘玉良(1895-1977)首個在香港舉行的個人作品展。

潘玉良(1895-1977)是第一代於法國留學的藝術系學生。雖然生於女性難以獨立成專業藝術家的年代,但潘氏仍然以其別樹一幟的中西合璧的風格,成為用西方技巧現代化中國傳統藝術的先鋒。與此同時,作為現代中國其中一位最早的女性藝術系教授,她對學術的貢獻亦是不可多得。潘玉良的藝術之路與大部份留學生不同,潘玉良選擇了終生留在競爭激烈的巴黎,發展其藝術事業,不同於當時留學華人普遍選擇回國。

是次展覽主要集中以潘玉良在法國的第二個階段,探索她對中國藝術史的重要影響,四個展區將展出超過六十件作品,主題包括了肖像、 裸體、 城市與自然風光及舞蹈人像。展覽同時展出潘玉良珍貴的資料、影像,藉以深入探索她的藝術世界。

關於藝術家

潘玉良(1895–1977),屬於首批赴法修讀藝術的中國留學生,在鮮有女性自力更生的年代成為融會中西畫風、革新中國藝術的先驅。

潘氏在里昂、巴黎和羅馬等地學習近八年。入讀巴黎國立高等美術學院,潘氏成為首位亞洲藝術家贏得獎學金入讀羅馬美術學院深造畫功及雕塑技巧。她於1928年回中國,隨即被母校上海美術專科學校聘請為西洋畫主任,為首位國内擔任藝術學術高職的女性。由1931年起,她亦曾任教於南京國立中央大學藝術系,兼任上海美專繪畫研究所藝苑的研究員和導師。留國期間,她曾經舉辦四次個展及設立不同的藝術社。在1937年她二度赴法進修,尋找自己的視覺語言。

潘玉良在世期間一直留居巴黎。再赴法國後,潘氏的畫作在沙龍圈頻繁展出。於1955年,她成為首位分別被巴黎市以及巴黎國立現代藝術博物館納入收藏的中國畫家。她在藝術生涯中獲獎無數,於1959年的巴黎大學「THORLET」獎為她最感自豪的殊榮。

The Hong Kong Jockey Club Presents Song of Spring: Pan Yu-Lin in Paris

The Hong Kong Jockey Club Presents - Song of Spring: Pan Yu-Lin in Paris is the first major presentation of Pan Yu-Lin (1895-1977) in Hong Kong and the second instalment in the 20th Century Chinese Female Artist Series. Born of humble origins, Pan came of age during the revolutionary May Fourth era and seized the chance to be one of the first Chinese students to study fine arts in France. Unlike most of her compatriots who built their artistic careers at home, Pan developed her unique style in the competitive Parisian art world from the 1930s until her death. With over sixty works of portraiture, nude, landscape, dance figure painting, and sculpture, this exhibition explores Pan’s second period in Paris, highlighting her artistic range and distinguished style that combines eastern and western sensibilities. This exhibition is guest curated by Eric Lefebvre, with Joyce Hei-ting Wong as assistant curator.

About the Series

20th Century Chinese Female Artist Series

Female empowerment and equality in modern societies have been much debated topics dating back over a century. While the diverse achievements of female talents across different fields have gained better light in recent years, female artists remain an under-represented and under-appreciated segment in Western societies and even more so across Chinese communities. 

Yet the emergence of female artists in 20th century China was a testament to both the country’s social progress and the various redefinitions of modernity that were adopted in a historical context complicated by wars and disasters.  Female agency in society was among the issues argued and promoted in the mass media of the time and retains lasting ideological power today.  Moreover, the social value of art and aesthetic education, institutionalized as part of a modern education program, along with co-education, placed high expectations on female artists as symbols of China’s modernity.  However, in scholastic studies and exhibitions, attention has been focused on modern Chinese male artists. Exhibitions featuring the creative attainments and influences of their female counterparts from the period are few and far between, and rarely in monographic presentations.

Asia Society Hong Kong Center launched its 20th Century Chinese Female Artist Exhibition Series (“the Series”) in 2017 to reclaim the story of female artists.  The first of its kind in Hong Kong, the Series provides local Hong Kong audiences with important examples of their artistic accomplishments, and hopes to honor the female artists with the public recognition they deserve for their contribution to the making of modern China. 

The current exhibition, Song of Spring: Pan Yu-Lin in Paris, is the second in the Series. Exclusively sponsored by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, it is the first solo presentation in Hong Kong of the treasured works by the exemplary Chinese painter Pan Yu-Lin (aka Pan Yuliang, 1895-1977).

From a wider community context, the Series fits into the discourse on female empowerment and equality in Hong Kong today, where research indicates that women continue to face challenges in male-dominated industries as well as gender stereotypes in the media and the workplace.  A series of education programs entitled Jockey Club Art Education and Female Empowerment Series will be offered to children, students, families, and the general public, through which we will highlight achievements of women in various industries while connecting to the lives and careers of the unique female artists presented in the Series.


More information on the first exhibition in the Series and the related education programs are available here. 

About the Exhibition

Song of Spring: Pan Yu-Lin in Paris is presented exclusively by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, and represents the second installment in Asia Society Hong Kong Center’s 20th Century Chinese Female Artist Series. Belonging to the first generation of Chinese students to study fine arts in France, Pan Yu-Lin (aka Pan Yuliang, 1895-1977) was a pioneer in modernizing Chinese art with western painting at a time when it was rare for women to achieve independent careers as professional artists.  Pan was distinguished for her individual style that synthesized eastern and western sensibilities as well as her academic contributions as one of the first female art professors in modern China.  Unlike most of her compatriots who built their careers back home after overseas education, Pan came to live and develop her individual style in the competitive Parisian art world until her death. 

This exhibition explores Pan’s unique trajectory and significance to modern Chinese art history by focusing on her second period in France, with over sixty works across four chambers dedicated to the themes of portraiture, nudes, cityscape and landscape, and dance figure painting, alongside archival materials and videos that delve into a comprehensive look at the art world of Pan Yu-Lin.

About the Artist

Pan Yu-Lin (aka Pan Yuliang, 1895-1977) belonged to the first generation of Chinese students to study fine arts in France. She was a pioneer in modernizing Chinese art with western painting at a time when it was rare for women to achieve independent careers as professional artists.

She studied in Europe for nearly eight years between Lyon, Paris, and Rome. At the National School of Fine Arts in Paris, Pan was the first Asian student to win a scholarship to study at Accademia del Belle Arti di Roma, where she studied sculpture and painting. She returned to China in 1928 and was immediately hired by the Shanghai Art Academy, her alma mater, as the head of western painting — the first woman to assume such a high academic position. She also taught at the Nanjing Central University Fine Art Department from 1931 onwards, and remained as a researcher and tutor at the Shanghai Art Academy’s painting research institute Yiyuan. Throughout her decade in China, she held four solo exhibitions and established various art societies. In 1937, she traveled to Paris again in search for her independent visual language.

Pan Yu-Lin remained in Paris until her death. Throughout her relocation to France, her works were widely exhibited in the salon circuit. Pan was the first Chinese artist to be collected by the City of Paris and followed by the National Museum of Modern Art in 1955. She won numerous awards overseas throughout her career, with her proudest achievement being the 1959 Thorlet award from the University of Paris granted by the municipal government.

Art Competition

“Expressing Self – Inspired by Pan Yu-Lin”

To encourage participation in art creation and promote the appreciation of art, Asia Society Hong Kong Center invites all visitors to give in to their imaginations and engage in a dialogue with Pan Yu-Lin’s work and her world through this open art competition and exhibition.  Winning and selected works will be exhibited in the Chantal Miller Gallery.

Entry Guidelines
Themes of the entry:  Expressing Self – Inspired by Pan Yu-Lin

Pan Yu-Lin’s work is an artistic expression of her feelings and a visual representation of her true self.  She persists in “fusing East and West to become one” in her artistic pursuits.  Throughout her long lifetime, Pan produces over five thousands of artworks, comprising but not limited to oil paintings, ink wash paintings, and drawings.  She mainly projects herself and her feelings into her plenty of portraits and self-portraits.  Through her audacious style and exquisite artworks, Pan also makes us think about the questions of expressing self by art.

Do you think art is conducive to knowing and depicting self?  Does Pan’s work inspire you and give you courage?  Create a drawing or a painting to express your true self, as inspired by Pan.  The art work can be of any themes or styles inspired by Pan Yu-Lin’s art.
