Fordham Alumnus Examines Art in Hong Kong

Andrew Hevia, GSB ‘15, is currently spending a year in Hong Kong investigating questions of identity, art and commerce. Hevia is a documentary filmmaker who graduated from the Gabelli School of Business with a master’s degree in media entrepreneurship. His work is funded by the Fulbright Scholarship he was granted last year and will focus on “Art Basel Hong Kong,” a prestigious contemporary art fair that features over 200 galleries. Hevia plans to make a documentary focused on the evolution of Hong Kong through the lens of the fair by interviewing various artists. Hevia is from South Florida and previously won an Emmy Award. He is based at Hong Kong Baptist University’s School of Visual Arts, focusing on the global art market. Hevia discussed Fordham’s role in his life decisions. “Fordham absolutely expanded my world, gave me opportunities that I was completely unaware were options and really helped me clarify and understand the things that I am best at,” he said.
