    Indie folk singer-songwriter Gwenji’s experience of studying music at school is likely to be all too familiar to many Hong Kong schoolchildren. She’ll be with us later to tell us about how she grew up playing the violin before going on to find her own path. While Gwenji found her voice in songwriting, Jonathan Jay Lee’s formative influence was comics. He was born and raised in the United States, but an early small project for Marvel comics opened doors for him to work in Hong Kong later in the 2000s.
    He’s been here ever since.

    The relationship of Chinese painter Wu Guanzhong and Hong Kong continues, even though the artist died in 2010. In March this year, Wu’s son donated HK$100 million to fund a “Wu Guanzhong Art Sponsorship” to promote Wu’s work and other related Chinese modern art. Three programmes have been launched under the fund.
    You can catch one of those programmes now in “Between Black and White” a thematic exhibition of a selection of Wu’s paintings, on show at the Wu Guanzhong Gallery.

    • Ceramic artist Rosanna Li, Yoonmi Nam@HK Open Print Shop & in the studio: Teriver Cheung & Bowen Li

      Ceramic artist Rosanna Li, Yoonmi Nam@HK Open Print Shop & in the studio: Teriver Cheung & Bowen Li

      For regular viewers, guitarist and composer Teriver Cheung won’t need much introduction. He’s known for his jazz performances and for his original compositions with his chamber group, Ensemble Transience. He’s joining us later to introduce his August concert that features a lineup of local and overseas musicians. The robust and chubby figures of ceramic artist Rosanna Li may also be familiar to many viewers of The Works. Her depictions of these figures going about their everyday life in Hong Kong can give viewers a relaxed, affectionate and maybe even nostalgic feeling. An ongoing exhibition of her work is currently highlighting her early influences and her development as a ceramic artist.

      With a focus on promoting graphic art and print art culture, the Hong Kong Open Printshop is currently featuring an exhibition of work by South Korean artist Yoonmi Nam, who’s a professor of printmaking at the University of Kansas. Nam works in the traditional printmaking process known as mokuhanga, a Japanese form of water-based woodblock printing. She also produces lithographs, and works with materials such as clay, glass and paper.

      For dedicated hikers, the Chuen Lung Family Walk is a nice warm-up exercise. For families out for a casual stroll, it’s a nice easy trail with a nearby tea house that serves dim sum. Tsuen Wan’s nearby Chuen Lung Tsuen, that’s “dragon stream village” in English, is a 500-year-old Hakka village. Now there’s a new reason to visit, particularly if you’re a photography lover.

      Currently on show at White Cube Hong Kong is the work of Korean artist Lee Jin Woo, whose practice is rooted in traditional Korean aesthetics and in the Dansaekhwa movement. The movement was founded in South Korea in the 1950s by a group of artists mostly born between 1930 and 1940.
      Rejecting realism, they emphasised modernist abstraction and formalism, focusing on monochrome and the two-dimensional nature of the canvas and using repetitive patterns and gestures.

      Born into a musical family, pianist Hui Ling started playing young, when she was just three years old. c
      She received her musical training at the secondary school of the Central Conservatory Music in Beijing before furthering her studies at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts and the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. Since she returned to Hong Kong in 1994 she’s been a soloist and a music educator. She’s with us now to tell us a little about her upcoming piano recital at the Hong Kong City Hall.

      Henry Steiner@M+, A Passion for Silk@City U & in the studio: RUMBU

      Later on today’s show, we’ll catch up with countertenor RUMBU. He came to our studio in May of last year while still a student at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts. Now he’s graduated, and he’ll be back with us to keep us up to date with his latest music and projects. First though, a man whose works you see every day. You might even have samples in your wallets or pockets right now, or you may have encountered them on drink boxes or sugar packets, in shopping malls, hotels, and even here at RTHK. He is Henry Steiner, a designer who has for decades been creating graphic identities for both global and local brands.

      For thousands of years, silk, the delicate yet durable natural fibre known for its lustre, shine, and strength has been associated with beauty and luxury. At the Indra and Harry Banga Gallery at the City University of Hong Kong’, you have a chance to learn more about silk’s 2000-year journey to the rest of the world in the exhibition, "A Passion for Silk: The Road from China to Europe".

    • Interview with film director Martin McDonagh & in the studio: Pianist Jerold Chu

      Interview with film director Martin McDonagh & in the studio: Pianist Jerold Chu

      Pianist KaJeng Wong came to our show a few weeks ago to give us a preview of this year’s Music Lab Festival. The festival’s still under way, but one of the highlights so far was the recent concert by pianist Jerold Chu. Jerold and his band will be with us later on the show to tell us more about his original music compositions.

      But first, movies. Some film directors like to use the same actors over and over again. This repeated actor-director dynamic can be seen in the work of such directors as Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg and Quentin Tarantino. Playwright and film director Martin McDonagh recently reunited two actors with whom he’d last worked in 2008, and for him and for them the old chemistry was still there. In March, McDonagh was here to attend the Hong Kong International Film Festival. We went to talk to him.

    • Le French May: Breakdance Symphonic, Fabien Merelle@Kiang Malingue & in the studio: French Baroque Music

      Le French May: Breakdance Symphonic, Fabien Merelle@Kiang Malingue & in the studio: French Baroque Music

      This week’s show is very much a French affair. In the second part of the programme, members of Hong Kong’s Concerto da Camera Baroque Ensemble will be here to tell us about their upcoming concert of French Baroque music and dance. Also on the subject of dance, although not in the Baroque style, “Breakdown Symphonic”, presented as part of this year’s Le French May Arts Festival, combines music and modern movement styles. French conductor Zahia Ziouani and her Divertimento Orchestra have joined forces with the City Chamber Orchestra of Hong Kong and choreographer Mourad Merzouki to create a show very much designed to break boundaries.

      Baroque music’s heyday in Europe ran roughly from 1600 to 1750. One major influence was the Renaissance revival of ideas from ancient Greece and Rome. While Italian Baroque is characterised by its communicative and complex nature, French Baroque is known for its expressiveness and its richness. On 11th June, Hong Kong’s Concerto da Camera Baroque Ensemble is presenting a concert of French Baroque music and dance. And we have some members of the ensemble with us right now.
