About the Exhibition

 

Co-organized by the Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) Library and the Academy of Visual Arts (AVA) with the strong support from the Centre for Innovative Service-Learning (CISL), Peregrination in Bookplates is an exhibition which proposes the perspective of a traveler to view the bookplates donated by the members of the Hong Kong Ex-Libris Association (HKEA) and selected bookplates by AVA students (VART2306 Art in the 20th Century). Bookplate is itself a tiny print attached to the inside front-cover of a book to indicate its ownership. In this exhibition, the donated bookplates from HKEA members show a great variety in subject matter and techniques, providing an overview of bookplates in Hong Kong for audience unfamiliar with this art. For students’ works, the idea of “peregrination” corresponds to the journey they took to conduct research on public art in Hong Kong, the results of which are shown in their bookplates.
