Economic development in the 1960s to 1970s evolved Hong Kong from a small fishing village to a confluence of Chinese and Western culture, with grocery stores in alleys, rickshaws on the streets, nightlife dance halls and floating restaurants. Through our “Remember them? — Old Businesses in Hong Kong through Eyes of Artists” Exhibition, four renowned Hong Kong artists from different generations and creative styles — Au Yeung Nai Chim, Shen Ping, Cassian Lau and Wai Wai celebrate the city’s long-forgotten and disappearing businesses from the 1960s and 1970s. Evoking nostalgia with every stroke, their creations of seemingly ordinary and everyday Hong Kong scenes take viewers on a journey through the city’s history and the craftsmen, merchants and shopkeepers who played key roles in its social and economic life. Through this exhibition, the artists build a bridge from past to present, reconnecting people with Hong Kong’s old businesses, allowing their stories to live on.

香港,從前是一個小漁村,在60、70年代經濟發展下,各行業與生活融合了中西的元素,發展出獨有的文化,如巷弄裡的士多、街邊的人力車、夜生活的舞廳及海上酒家等。「仍然記得佢哋嗎?—藝術家筆下的香港老行業特展邀請四位跨越四個世代的香港知名藝術家—歐陽乃沾、沈平、劉啟舜及慧惠,用不同創作形式,透過畫筆以樸素、細膩及趣味的方式描繪出60、70年代至今被遺忘或消失的行業,看似平凡的日常,情感卻存在於每一幅畫的細節中,令看畫的人不知不覺回到昔日的香港生活氛圍中。藝術家們的作品為城市建立一座時空橋梁,再次聯結民眾與老行業,使他們的故事延續下去。
