Luminous Garden is the third art exhibition organized and presented by Lam Wong during his year-long artist residency at Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden. The show investigates the concept of the garden as a sanctuary for spiritual growth: a place to connect to nature and arouse enlightenment through contemplation and meditation. The exhibition features a collection of garden photography by Glenn Lewis and Lam Wong, coupled with ceramic tea ware by Lewis that will be used in tea ceremonies and art performances Wong will conduct in the garden during the spring and summer.

During this climate of isolation and uncertainly, we believe it is more crucial than ever to celebrate spaces of contemplation, meditation, and sanctuary, therefore we have worked hard to convert this show into a virtual exhibit that may be enjoyed from anywhere in the world. In addition, artists Lam Wong and Glenn Lewis will be hosting free virtual talks to dive deeper into the philosophies behind Luminous Garden.

We encourage you to get involved! Share this beautiful collection of images with your loved ones, join a free talk, or add images of your sanctuary to our growing collection using #myluminousgarden to celebrate the everyday spaces that bring peace and sanctuary to your life.

Very much like a garden, this is a living exhibit. Over the next few weeks, it will continue to grow and change.

Artist in Residence Program

Started in 2017, the Artist-in-Residence Program is a key component of the Garden’s cultural programming. It invites artists to use the Garden as inspiration to curate exhibitions hosted within the various beautiful rooms and courtyards on the property, and provides them with the opportunity to showcase their works to an international audience.
