THE PAST IS CONTINUING

The train to the future makes 1000 years of history like a bygone yesterday.

Along the way, you will see scenes of China over the centuries and changes in Hong Kong over the past 100 years; you will meet trendy, self-confident women, dynamic revolutionaries, and ambitious, liberal-minded literati; and enjoy traditional performances, dedicate craftsmanship and touching stories.

Our past continues to thrive. A gateway to the past has been opened by 18 contemporary artists, who bring our history alive.

Participating Artists:
Halley Cheng, Chow Chun-fai, KaCaMa Design Lab, Koon Wai-bong, Lam Tung-pang, Lau Ching-ping, Hanison Lau, Wing Lee, Rosanna Li, Chris Lo, Aries Sin, Stanley Siu, Tang Kwok-hin, the pancakes, Johnson Tsang, Annie Wan, Justin Wong, XCEED

What I love about this exhibition is the juxtaposition of the new works against the old, there is a reaction, a dialogue between the 2, not only is the works inspired from the past but also cast a different light on the collection of the Heritage Museum.  The new works is there as a continuation but at the same time exist in its own right.

Don’t be deter by the location of the Heritage Museum, you wont regret it.
