Searching through Teaching: Professor Jao Tsung-i’s 16 Years at The University of Hong Kong
In collaboration with the Jao Tsung-I Petite Ecole of The University of Hong Kong (HKU), the University Museum and Art Gallery (UMAG) will present "Searching through Teaching: Professor Jao Tsung-i’s 16 Years at The University of Hong Kong" from March 8 to May 19, 2019. The works on exhibit, which date from Professor Jao’s 1952–1968 tenure at HKU, illustrate how this period of teaching, research and international exchange laid the foundations for his development as an internationally acclaimed scholar.
The exhibition is divided into four main areas: teaching, research, social circle, and books and artworks donated to the University by Professor Jao. Exhibits include his authored books, lecture notes, examination papers, letters, paintings, calligraphy, and part of his original collection of rare books and autographed editions.
