Hong Kong Emerging Artists Exhibition is an art programme sponsored by the Simon Suen Foundation and co-organised by Jao Tsung-I Academy and Sun Museum. The aim is to provide a free platform for young Hong Kong artists to exhibit their works, which allows the public to recognise their art direction and achievements and helps them grow into elites of the art world. By encouraging young artists to revitalise the spirit of Chinese art and unleash their creativity, the philosophy of reviving Chinese culture from Jao Tsung-i, Master of Chinese Studies, is inherited through the programme. With the unique works of the young artists, the public can experience the greatness of Chinese culture, thereby adding a new chapter to the promotion of the visual arts in Hong Kong.

Jao Tsung-I Academy and Sun Museum, the organisers of this programme, will issue announcements regularly to invite artists participating in this exhibition programme. Jao Tsung-I Academy will provide the exhibition hall, while Sun Museum is responsible for curatorial and exhibition work.
