Artspace K is pleased to announce its latest exhibition, “Remember Them?—Old Businesses in Hong Kong through Eyes of Artists” from 11 March till 27 June 2021, featuring the city’s traditional businesses. Four renowned Hong Kong artists spanning four generations have been invited to present over 70 artworks in various techniques and media, including oils, watercolour, Chinese ink and ink, to provide audiences with a fascinating glimpse of Hong Kong in the bygone days.

Economic development in the 1960s to 1970s evolved Hong Kong from a small fishing village to a confluence of Chinese and Western culture, with grocery stores in alleys, rickshaws on the streets, nightlife dance halls and floating restaurants.

Through our “Remember them? — Old Businesses in Hong Kong through Eyes of Artists” Exhibition, four renowned Hong Kong artists from different generations and creative styles — Au Yeung Nai Chim, Shen Ping, Cassian Lau and Wai Wai celebrate the city’s long-forgotten and disappearing businesses from the 1960s and 1970s. Evoking nostalgia with every stroke, their creations of seemingly ordinary and everyday Hong Kong scenes take viewers on a journey through the city’s history and the craftsmen, merchants and shopkeepers who played key roles in its social and economic life. Through this exhibition, the artists build a bridge from past to present, reconnecting people with Hong Kong’s old businesses, allowing their stories to live on.

Address: Artspace K, G105-106, The Repulse Bay Arcade, 109 The Repulse Bay Road
