Description

Professor Jeffrey Shaw, Yeung Kin Man Chair Professor of Media Art in the School of Creative Media (SCM), has been recognised with the 2020 ACM SIGGRAPH Distinguished Artist Award for Lifetime Achievement in Digital Art.

It’s a major award for a major international artist, one for whom City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has been home for more than a decade.

“In 1985 I was thrilled to be invited to SIGGRAPH in San Francisco to show my interactive art installation The Narrative Landscape,” said Professor Shaw. “Now, 35 years later, I am excited again to be the recipient of this precious award and recognition from ACM SIGGRAPH, which is the world’s leading community of computer graphics professionals.”
