01.01.2013 / Abby Chen Published in Yishu Journal of Contemporary Chinese Art

In the January/February 2012 issue of Yishu Journal of Contemporary Chinese Art, Abby Chen (MA VCS, 2011) has published two articles, “The Best of Times: Lam Tung-pang’s Long View Under Scrutiny,” and “A Conversation With Lam Tung-pang.” Both articles focus on Lam Tung-pang, a Hong Kong artist who is acutely aware of the historical trajectory his city is experiencing in its shift from a British colony to its apparent absorption into the People’s Republic of China. And in spite of what appears in this context to be an unpredictable relationship with one’s identity, he suggests the climate for artistic activity has improved.
