Fung Yan, Angelica

2021-2022 awardee

It has been a great pleasure to study the MACAH programme, with the Targeted Taught Postgraduate Programmes Fellowship. It has truly been an eye-opening experience. I gained a wide spectrum of knowledge about art history and the arts industry. Particularly, the inspiring discussion about “provenance”, which a concept I had not heard before enrolling in this programme. Even though I do not know what the future holds, I can picture myself having a position in the creative industry, as a museum educator, conservator, or curator, etc. I am thankful for this opportunity that has given me a clearer vision and directions for my career path.

Hui Man Yee, Tracy

Gallery Assistant, Amanda Wei Gallery

My study at the MACAH program helped me break stereotypes and broaden my definition of art. The diverse curriculum allowed me to accumulate professional knowledge in both curating and art history. With the patient and constructive guidance from Dr Michelle Huang, I completed a dissertation on Chinese women artists in Qing. The critical thinking, research and writing skills that I obtained have enhanced my working ability at the gallery. Last summer, I had a chance to work as an intern at Art Museum, CUHK. The experience granted me more practical training in museum operation and honed my skills on art education. Thanks to the Graduate Scholarship, I have more opportunities to equip myself with abundant knowledge in the field too. My time spent with MACAH program has truly broadened my horizon and deepened my understanding of the art world.
