In February 2012, The Asia Society Hong Kong Center established its new permanent home in Admiralty, Hong Kong.

LIANG YI MUSEUM

181-199 Hollywood Road, Sheung Wan

 

The four-storey museum is home to one of the world's largest and best-curated collections of Chinese antique furniture, made of the treasured materials huanghuali and zitan, from the Ming and Qing dynasties. Started in the 1980s with many of the earlier pieces purchased right here on Hollywood Road, the collection has grown to over 300 pieces three decades later. Selected pieces have been exhibited in other museums, primarily the National Museum of History in Taiwan. 

The Liang Yi Museum also houses the world's premier collection of bejewelled clutches, compacts and powder boxes. Made in the finest design houses such as Cartier, Boucheron and Van Cleef & Arpels, these necessaries and minaudieres, glittering with precious stones and showing exquisitely detailed craftsmanship, were once a staple of every lady's evening wear. With nearly 400 examples from the late 1880s through to the 1960s, this dazzling collection provides an elegant peek at a bygone era and has been lent out to other museums in the past, including the Palace Museum in Beijing and Goldsmiths Hall in London.

The Oriental Ceramic Society of Hong Kong Limited (OCS) was established in 1974, at which time the only requirement for membership was 'an interest in ceramics.' Over the intervening years, the Society has broadened the scope of its activities to cover the full range of study, travel and writing that can be spurred by an interest in collecting or appreciation of Oriental culture and arts.

One of the distinctive roles of the Society is that it brings the resources of collectors to the public and encourages collectors to open up their treasures and their treasury of knowledge and experience, both to other members and to the general public. In almost four decades, the OCS has provided a forum for the lively exchange of ideas and information, sponsored publications, held exhibitions, study sessions and travel programmes and has hosted an impressive array of distinguished speakers. In support of these objectives, the Society publishes catalogues of all major exhibitions as well as, from time to time, a Bulletin recording key papers presented to the membership.

The museum is housed in the Fung Ping Shan Building and the lower three storeys of the T T Tsui Building. The Fung Ping Shan Building was donated to The University of Hong Kong by Mr Fung Ping-shan in 1932 for a Chinese book library. In 1953, the building was converted into the Fung Ping Shan Museum of Chinese art and archaeology. With its extension to the T T Tsui Building in 1996, the Museum changed its title to the "University Museum and Art Gallery".

The new wing of the Museum was built with a generous donation by Dr T T Tsui, and was officially opened in November 1996. Since its inception in 1953, the UMAG has received continuous support from donors, artists, collectors and the University. Its collections have grown to over one thousand and eighty items of Chinese antiquities, notably bronzes, ceramics and paintings.

The University Museum and Art Gallery aspires to generate artistic and cultural experiences that are accessible to people in all walks of life. We seek to encourage greater appreciation of the arts and nurture a stronger sense of cultural values within the Hong Kong community. Through our collection and activities, we are dedicated to educating the public about the past and present of Chinese and other cultures, and to stimulating life-long learning through both formal and informal education.

The mission of The Ink Society is to foster a broader understanding and appreciation of modern and contemporary art that is based on or inspired by the ink tradition through an extensive range of programming, education and outreach activities.

The Ink Society has been a strong and persistent advocate for the establishment of an Ink Art Centre in Hong Kong. Ink art is a unique and important aspect of Chinese culture, one that continues to evolve and adapt in modern times. Ink art is more than just an art form; ink art is a tradition, a culture and a way of life. The Ink Art Centre is an original and differentiating concept, and we believe that a world class Ink Art Centre will be a focal point for the local community as well as a destination for visitors from all over the world.
