Description

The last decade has seen Hong Kong blossom into one of Asia’s true artistic hotspots, with its galleries, art projects and fairs now flourishing along with local and international audiences. At the centre of this cultural renaissance are the artists themselves – working as both products and interpreters of Hong Kong’s complex historical legacy. Though often finding themselves at odds with society’s values, they have developed a wholly unique genre of art that acts as a vital bridge between a place and its people.

The artist's interviews in Contemporary Art in Hong Kong expose the countless links between history, culture and identity – as well as Ha Thuc’s conviction that art not only reflects society, but can also mould it.
