The Hong Kong Jockey Club presents A World Within: The Art and Inspiration of Irene Chou as the third instalment in ASHK’s “20th Century Chinese Female Artist Series”. One of the most inventive artists at the forefront of Hong Kong’s New Ink Art Movement, Irene Chou (1924-2011) had a dynamic career spanning from the 1950s to early 2000s. She was remarkable for paving new possibilities in Chinese ink painting through a highly original abstract visual language, and her exploration of modern themes informed by metaphysics, science, religion and literature, as well as her personal outlook on life. With over forty works, this exhibition traces Chou’s artistic trajectory and considers her historical significance in the first major thematic survey since the artist’s passing.
Music performance by STROOT from The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups – Jockey Club Jat Min Youth S.P.O.T.

“Street” x “Root” = “STROOT”
A group of youth, who are passionate about music, started jamming music on the street after knowing each other in a music event. This is how STROOT is formed. The band name is a reminder of them not to forget their root of performing on the street. They hope you will feel their passion for music during their performance on October 10.
