Hong Kong photography curator Bamboo Scenes is launching a new ‘Hong Kong Contrasts’ exhibition to showcase “exceptional” images of the city captured by local artists.
“I’m very excited to embark on this next chapter and share the stories of our artists and their works.” founder Madelon de Grave said.
“We want to push the boundaries of what people think ‘art’ and ‘galleries’ can be to create a truly international art brand that peels back the layers of Hong Kong.”
The exhibition features works by eight local photographers, including 2020 International Landscape Photographer of the Year Kelvin Yun, researcher-turned photographer Jeremy Cheung, and urban visual artist Elaine Li.
Organisers hope to “transform the city into a moveable gallery that continually brings new art experiences to the city.”
The exhibition will be showcased at different pop-up locations across the city from mid-June.
The images aim to share with viewers how each photographer experiences the magic of their city through their unique lenses.
Founded in 2017 by Dutch native Madelon de Grave, Bamboo Scenes is a progressive photography art concept that uses the city as its gallery.
The collective hopes its new images will have international appeal.
“While Hong Kong is the focus, Bamboo Scenes aims to create a fun, inclusive, global community where individuals around the world can discover art in a way that makes sense for them,” it said in a statement.
Hong Kong Contrasts begins this Thursday at Loft 22. See Facebook event for details.
