Brilliant City: Hong Kong Dystopia-Inspired Group Art Show
Why We Recommend it
Borrowing its title from the lyrics of a 1987 Cantopop classic, this group show brings together artworks that draw inspiration from Hong Kong as an archetypal dystopian metropolis.
Organised and curated by Leo Xu, Brilliant City, is a group exhibition featuring work by Francis Alÿs, Chen Wei, Stan Douglas, Li Qing, Michael Lin, Gordon Matta-Clark, and Ming Wong.
The exhibition borrows its title from the lyrics of a 1987 Cantopop classic Starry is the Night, in which the Hong Kong-based electro duo Tat Ming Pair illustrate the perplexing brilliance of the city’s landscape at night, and the feeling of loss and doubt that it harbors amongst its youth.
