Forever, Remember Professor Jao Tsung-i - Commemorative Exhibition Presented by Jao Tsung-I Petite Ecole, The University of Hong Kong

On 6th February 2018, Professor Jao Tsung-i passed away peacefully in the small hours of the morning. For himself, he had obtained infinite peace. However, it is undoubtedly a huge loss for the academic and art circles in the Chinese society, even the world.

In the past decades, Professor Jao had made pioneering contributions to various fields in art and academia. For these achievements, he will be honored and reverenced forever.

He always believed that the various realms of Chinese culture, particularly those in academic and art, will never cease moving onward like an endless stream. He also indicated that the 21st century is the era of the renaissance of Chinese culture, which will become the main force of driving forward world culture; meanwhile, it will also be the era of “the introduction of Chinese culture to the West”, and he had practiced that personally with such faith.




This exhibition presents Professor Jao’s paintings and calligraphic pieces accomplished between the 60s of the previous century and 2017. Although there are only a number of works, his spirit of constant striving for innovation and breakthrough in the creation of art is fully demonstrated through the exhibits, and further embody the “pursuit of correctness, truth, and neutrality”.

Our remembrance of him is beyond any expressive words. This exhibition is sincerely dedicated to Professor Jao Tsung-i.
