    HONG KONG INK ART: IMAGES FROM A LIMINAL CITY

    3 June - 27 August 2021
    Hong Kong's Ink Art is a unique creation of the city's cultural and physical ecology, encapsulating its people, landscape and its liminal point between cultures. In conjunction with the tenth anniversary of the Hong Kong gallery, the exhibition explores the past, present and future of Hong Kong Ink Art, framed in this pivotal moment of the post pandemic era. Experiencing the historical impact of our post-colonial era, towards an unknown future within the digital age, we examine how this distinctively East Asian artistic medium is used to both express Hong Kong's identities and to question global concerns. Participating Hong Kong ink artists Chloe Ho, Chui Pui Chee and Kassia Ko share traditional expressions of modernity alongside award-winning TECH-iNK artist Victor Wong, and his invention A.I. Gemini, the world's first artificial intelligence ink artist.
