Abstract:

"Last week the Chinese government criticised the international art magazine ArtReview for voting a Chinese artist the most powerful person in the art world. It would seem a surprising move until you realise that the artist concerned was Ai Weiwei, who was, earlier this year, detained for more than 80 days by the countryʼs authorities. His detention sent a chill through the Chinese art world, but despite that, some of the country's artists are still determined to express their political opinions. The Works talked to some of them in Beijing."--RTHK web site.

"Artist Zeng Fanzhi was born in Wuhan in 1964. He now lives and works in Beijing. His paintings are expressionistic in style, often capturing a feeling of psychological tension, or even violence, sometimes commenting subtly on the world around him. Until November 5th, the Gagosian Gallery is presenting an exhibition that concentrates on his use of the human figure over the past twenty years."--RTHK web site.

"Not long after The Works went to air, internationally-celebrated cellist Steven Isserlis took to the stage to perform a recital at the Academy for Performing Arts with pianist Ya-fei Chuang. Steven is a wide-ranging musician who likes playing Baroque music on authentic instruments, but who is also a keen supporter of contemporary music, and a keen promoter of music to children. We spoke to him as he was rehearsing for the show."--RTHK web site.
