Desiring Post-’97 Ink Art: Tracing a Reformed Medium

Why We Recommend it

This group exhibit marks Hong Kong’s Handover anniversary by tracing the city’s ink art reformation.


Presenting works of ten noted local artists of different generations, this exhibit shows the journey of Hong Kong’s ink art as it has developed over the years.

The exhibit features works by Liu Shou Kwan and his students, created during the 1960s and 70s at a pivotal time for ink art, alongside a new blood of contemporary artists responding to their post-Handover environment in diverging ways.

Through the exhibit, viewers can see the shifts of the art form as local artists explore new ways of expressing themselves though ink, including exploring influences from new media and pop culture.
