This bilingual exhibition catalogue, A World Within: The Art and Inspiration of Irene Chou, is published on the occasion of Asia Society Hong Kong Center’s eponymous exhibition. The catalogue celebrates Chou as one of the most inventive artists at the forefront of Hong Kong’s New Ink Painting Movement, with her dynamic career spanning from the 1950s to early 2000s. She was remarkable for paving new possibilities in Chinese ink painting through a highly original abstract visual language, and her exploration of modern themes informed by an interest in metaphysics, science and literature.
