AFA is proud to announce the opening ceremony of “The Beginner’s Mind – Works by AFA Founders” will be held at Tak Chun Macau Art Garden, 6:30pm on August 25 (Friday). Participating artists are also the founders of AFA, and they are Bianca Lei, James Chu, Konstantin Bessmertny, Noah Ng Fong Chao, and Tong Chong respectively. Works from paintings, videos to mixed media will be showcased.
The Beginner’s Mind – Works by AFA Founders
The exhibition is curated upon the theme of “Beginners’ Mind”. The term comes from a Buddhist classic text of the Avatamsaka Sutra: “The very beginning mind itself is the most accomplished mind of true enlightenment”. It is oftentimes the best mind but the most difficult mind to attain. As participating artists have witnessed the growth of AFA throughout the past 10 years, the exhibition seeks to revisit the original intention when AFA was founded. In reflection AFA is ready to carry on its mission and step into a new page.
