Three rounds of retrospective exhibitions were held in Hong Kong and London
Three rounds of exhibitions were organised in London and Hong Kong, with different features. The curator customised the display of exhibits with different spatial environments of the exhibition sites.
A mini exhibition in 2020 was held at the Brent Civic Centre in London, i.e., where the British Empire Exhibition took place, to “bring back” Hong Kong to the original exhibition site and highlight Hong Kong’s historical connection with London.
The two-part retrospective exhibition was held in Hong Kong in 2021 and 2022. Part 1 was hosted by a community select shop. The small but cozy environment displays the century-old original artefacts and allows local community members to immerse themselves in the historical atmosphere in the 1920s. Part 2 was held at the University of Hong Kong. The undefined yet spacious exhibition area provides more space for in-depth academic discussion.
Date: 3 Aug – 27 Nov 2020
