Event Details:

Jointly-presented by the Art Museum of The Chinese University of Hong Kong and The University of Chicago Francis and Rose Yuen Campus in Hong Kong, the exhibition features over 100 paintings and photographs of old Hong Kong from the 1940s to 1970s. In addition to stunning views of the Victoria harbor and bygone typhoon shelters, sketches and snapshots of everyday life and scenic spots off the beaten track by Lui Shou-kwan, Wucius Wong and a dozen other artists will serve as a reminder how much this metropolis had evolved in the 20th century. Many works are exhibited for the first time, including colored photographs from the 1950s which have been newly acquired by CUHK.
