Chung Lam Law
Hong Kong Arts and Visual Culture
In this summer project, I will continue to assist Prof. Wong in building a database collection that consists of a timeline of Hong Kong art history, various bibliographies, as well as artist lists. I will also continue working on an ongoing digital resource page that is made up of online archives, photography, and local exhibition catalogues. We are currently expanding the project to include the diasporic HK artist community in order to explore the relationships between arts/culture, politics, and the HK identity. Due to HK’s political turmoil and an increasing suppression in artistic freedom, this project is particularly important in preserving existing works that constitute the unique culture on the other side of the world.
