A Lecture, Dreams with Tim Yip
The Chinese Culture Center (CCC) hosted Dreams With Tim Yip, a moderated discussion with the Oscar Award Winning Art Director and Designer himself, followed by a thought-provoking audience Q&A. The lecture took place on August 27th, 2016 at the auditorium of CCC. The moderated discussion, led by CCC’s Curator and Artistic Director, Abby Chen, focused on Tim Yip’s world-famous artworks in various acclaimed films, theatrical productions, and contemporary art exhibitions. Over 250 guests were in attendance, which included San Francisco Opera executives, business elites, artists, art influencers, and local media.
The audience was generally curious about Tim Yip’s works and were inspired by some of his recent contemporary art exhibitions. While much of his beloved work is known from the silver screen, the audience was surprised to learn that there are many other avenues of exploration with regards to his process driven artistry.
Major sponsors of Dreams With Tim Yip included the Vincent V.C. Woo Foundation, Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office, T. Peter and Y. Mei Lam, Dr. Richard & Tatwina Lee, and our community partner, the San Francisco Opera.
