Exhibition - Hong Kong in Poor Images

Sunday, Feb 9, 2020 at 1:00pm

John Slade Ely Center for Contemporary Art
51 Trumbull Street
New Haven, CT 06501

Curated by ZENG Hong (2020 Yale-China Arts Fellow)

Ely Center of Contemporary Art also presents the exhibition, Hong Kong in Poor Images, in partnership with Yale-China Association. Hong Kong in Poor Images presents artworks that picture the cityscape, people, and ordinary life of Hong Kong. In recent decades, leading artists of the Hong Kong contemporary art scene have explored themes that visualize the vernacular culture of the region. The intended “poor” representation through digital images reinforces these artists’ insistence on exploring the intensity, hybridity, and fluidity of Hong Kong everyday life, thus shaping a disruptive force of idea and emotion within the mainstream commercial and institutional system of Hong Kong art scene. Hong Kong in Poor Images has been curated by ZENG Hong, a 2020 Yale-China Arts Fellow.
