Hong Kong Human Rights Arts Prize 2020 Exhibition

Why We Recommend it

The Hong Kong Human Rights Arts Prize presents brilliant works by Hong Kong-based artists that explore the state of human rights both at home and abroad.

Description

Established by the Justice Centre Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Human Rights Arts Prize has played a key role in discovering and encouraging Hong Kong artists to explore the state of human rights both at home and abroad since its first edition in 2013.

This year’s exhibition features Hong Kong Symposium 2019  created by this year prize winner Kam Wa Magus Yue along all 34 other shortlisted artworks, which will all be available for purchase. All proceeds will go towards supporting the non-profit work of Justice Centre, which provides pro-bono legal advice and services to refugees and survivors of human trafficking in Hong Kong.

Works this year portray various human rights-related topics including the recent civil unrest in Hong Kong, treatment of ethnic minorities, increasing surveillance of civilians by their states and the legacy of the post-World War II British policy of sending orphans abroad for a new life where they were often mistreated.

The exhibition will be available for viewing both in person and online. Please check the official website for updates regarding the digital exhibition.
