Exhibition and Event Series

Exhibiting Artist: Au Yeung Nai Chim, Shen Ping, Cassian Lau, Wai Wai
參展藝術家: 歐陽乃沾、沈平、劉啟舜、慧惠

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.

Travel through Time ─ From Movie to Canvas 穿梭時光─從影像到畫布 Speaker講者:Cassian Lau 劉啟舜
Special Guest 特別嘉賓Karen Yan 甄嘉璉

The artist Mr. Cassian Lau moved to Canada since he was a child. Staying miles away from Hong Kong, watching old Cantonese movies and black and white films were the only ways he could understand Hong Kong. At that time, Cassian was fascinated by movies such as “The House of 72 Tenants” and “92 Legendary La Rose Noire” which delivered a unique sense of Hong Kong in the 1960s and 1970s. His impressions of Hong Kong are reflected in his works in a humorous way. In this event, artist Cassian Lau will be in conversation with Art Editor and Art Consultant Ms Karen Yan to share with the audience his artwork creations and extend the discussion into the local pop art scene.
