The Inking of Hong Kong: Ink art is much more than traditional landscapes that seem a world away from our contemporary society. Tai Kwun is currently presenting a new thematic group exhibition Ink City to explore how ink art are used to addressed social issues among the Chinese diaspora through often contemporary and humorous ways. A showcase of over 50 pieces of work by 19 contemporary artists, Ink City offers a refreshing take on the art form outside of its deeply ingrained impression as ancient Chinese ink paintings.
