In this online panel discussion, to be conducted in English at 8pm (HK) / 1pm (UK) on Thursday 9th April 2020, three influential guests in the field of ink art will discuss Reflections on the Eastern spirit and wisdom in contemporary ink art. Our panelists will explore current artistic expressions of contemporary ink, as well as discussing its Easternness, and its relationship with current social issues.
