On the occasion of the Asian Cultural Council (ACC) Hong Kong's 30th Anniversary, Alisan Fine Arts is delighted to be hosting the ACC Fellows first Annual Showcase fundraising event at our Central Gallery. J D Rockefeller III established the ACC in 1963 with the mission of promoting international understanding through meaningful, immersive cross-cultural engagements. Our relationship with the ACC dates back to 1986, when our Gallery Founder Alice King helped to establish ACC's Friends' Committee in Hong Kong, subsequently serving as its Vice-Chairman. Similar to ACC, which, through the awarding of fellowship grants, fosters transformative for cultural exchange in the arts between the US and Asia, Alisan Fine Arts encourages the bridging of East and West through our promotion of Chinese artists in Hong Kong and abroad. Grants from the ACC have enabled thousands of artists to participate in unique international experiences that have widened and enriched their respective practices. The art on display in the ACC Fellows Annual Showcase testifies to the vibrancy and talent fostered by the support of the ACC; these are works that challenge, motivate and inspire. A portion of sales will directly benefit the ACC Alumni Fellowship Program to ensure its continued support of artists and art professionals.
