Scope and Content

Exhibition catalogue for City Vibrance, the first thematic exhibition on contemporary Hong Kong art by the Hong Hong Museum of Art. 

The theme for the exhibition was an exploration of artistic sensitivity and response to the living environment in a cosmopolitan city like Hong Kong. Using a variety of Western media, 49 artists express their views on issues they feel are of concern to them at present and in the future. The artists were asked to express their feelings towards Hong Kong - a place known for its rapid pace, cosmopolitan atmosphere, and combination of Chinese and Western influences, as well as for the pressure and uncertainties surrounding its future.
