By Carol Dyer

 

Confrontational art on a major scale! One marvels at Kiefer’s concept, enterprise and industrial skill.

Solid oak bookshelves lined the premises, complemented with squashy bespoke armchairs and warm lights. Although there was no fireplace, any absence was well compensated by the free flow of […]

By Jenny Chang

 

On May 9, WIPS members (old and newly recruited!) gathered in the offices of leading Hong Kong law firm Oldham, Li & Nie to learn what NOT to do (or rather sign away!) when it comes to publishing contracts and copyright.
