Young Friends experienced yet another busy few months this spring 2017, most recently attending the Affordable Art Fair and catching Hong Kong Art Centre’s private screening of the acclaimed Hong Kong film 10 years.
The highlight of our spring calendar was definitely the Hi House! Heritage house art tour. We were delighted that Lam Tung Pang, Wilson Shieh, and the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (Education) partners offered us their time on a Saturday to take us around designated heritage houses across Hong Kong where the government has invited four Hong Kong artists to revitalise four centuries-old houses to use art as a tool to link the past with the present and revive collective memory. We visited four different corners of the territory: Law Uk Folk Museum; Chai Wan, Sam Tung Uk Museum in Tsuen Wan, Wong Uk Village old house in Sha Tin and Dr Sun Yat Sen Museum in Mid levels.
As summer approaches, Young Friends are planning more friendly meet ups around Hong Kong.
