Fotanian Open Studios

Description

The Fotanian Open Studio event brings together a vibrant community of artists and art lovers who transformed industrial lofts into art studios. With the migration of industries to the Mainland, the local creative have started to take refuge in the spacious lofts of vacant industrial buildings since 2000.

Fotanian Open Studio Programme is a major annual event in the local art scene. Every year in January, artists throw open their doors in 2 consecutive weekends to welcome the general public. They get to go behind the scene and explore their creative works, which encompass a wide array of media, including paintings, sculptures, ceramics, mixed media, printmaking, installations, photographic and video works.

Visitors can freely explore the artists' workplace and hear about their artworks and artmaking techniques. To foster the sharing and exchange of ideas, visitors are also encouraged to engage in friendly dialogues with the artists in an approachable and open atmosphere. With over 50 studios and over 180 artists joining hands this year, the Fotanian community is growing at an unprecedented scale.
