Introductory Statement 

Preface to the ISEA2016 Art Catalogue

ISEA2016 impresses with a multifaceted visual arts programme that engages an unprecedented number of international artists and displays throughout Hong Kong. Masterminded by Dr. Harald Kraemer and co-organised by City University and Polytechnic University, The University of Hong Kong is thankful for the opportunity to participate and to display four innovative and thought-provoking projects on our campus. The overall selection of artists and works stimulates a discussion on public art and the meaning of and necessity for an enhanced engagement of our students and the local public with high-quality art. We are grateful for being part of this process.
