HKGAF 2013

As an art form that can be appreciated by people of all ages and all walks of life, graphic art connects art with the community.

As an international exchange programme, Hong Kong Graphic Art Fiesta connects national, regional and international art communities.

Hong Kong Open Printshop promotes the art of printmaking by curating exchange exhibitions, conducting educational programmes and showcasing Hong Kong printmaking at international symposiums. Our international exchange programme began in 2007 with the opening of the first Hong Kong Graphic Art Fiesta. The feature events that year were “Crossing Boundaries – an International Print Exchange Exhibition” and “Hot Off the Press”, an exhibition of print art by students from local universities and tertiary institutes. By 2010, the Hong Kong Graphic Art Fiesta had developed into a major annual international printmaking exchange exhibition with three main areas of focus – work by established printmakers, work by university students and work by secondary students – rotating every three years.
