Hong Kong strengthens cultural ties in Kentucky


Hong Kong further strengthened and promoted cultural ties in Kentucky in mid-March with the visit of two Hong Kong artists - Mr. Parry Ling, a relational artist, and Mr. Hao Yang, a choreographer-dancer, to attend the Humana Festival in Louisville, Kentucky on March 20-22. Both are recipients of the inaugural HKETO-NY Yale-China Arts Fellowship and are currently on a 6-month residency at Yale University. The program, which brings promising Hong Kong artists to Yale for cultural exchange, is administered by the Yale-China Association (YCA) and sponsored by the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in New York (HKETONY).

HKETONY co-hosted a reception at the 21c Museum Hotel on March 21 with YCA for Mr. Ling and Mr. Yang, introducing them to Kentucky’s arts and cultural community. Speaking at the reception, Head of Communications and PR of HKETONY, Ms. Claudia Yeung welcomed the collaboration and said she hopes that this visit heralds closer cultural and business ties between Hong Kong and Kentucky.

Around 40 guests attended the reception. They included YCA Chair Ms. Martha Finn Brooks, Associate Dean of Yale School of Drama Ms. Joan Channick, 21c Museum Director Ms. Alice Gray, Director of the Hite Art Institute at the University of Louisville Professor Ying Kit Chan and Director of Academic Affairs at Kentucky School of Art Mr. Theo Edmonds.
