Exhibition showcases local talent

The 2009 Contemporary Art Biennial Awards exhibition, featuring 83 works by 78 local artists, will be held at the Museum of Art from May 21 to August 1.

About 2,220 entries from 1,090 participants were received, outnumbering the figures in previous art biennials. Ten entries were selected as the best works.

Visitors will be invited to take part in the artistic extravaganza by voting for their favourite piece. The audience choice award will be granted at the end of the exhibition.

A highlight fringe exhibition, Hong Kong Diary - Response Exhibition of the 53rd Venice Biennale Hong Kong Exhibition II, will be on display at the museum from June 12 to August 1. Artist Pak Sheung-chuen will reassemble his works exhibited in the Venice Biennale last June into a new exhibition.
