By the People: Creative Chinese Characters

Organised by KL&K DESIGN

The 2nd exhibition of "Hong Kong Art: Co-Creation" exhibition series is co-curated by the Hong Kong Museum of Art and renowned local designer Freeman Lau. Prof. Chan Yuk-keung, has been invited as the exhibition consultant. With the theme of Chinese characters, the exhibition features more than 100 exhibits in various media from the collection of Hong Kong Museum of Art, private collectors and institutions.

Chinese characters have been used for over three thousand years. With their unique structure and shape, the characters have served as an important conduit and genre for literati and calligraphers to create their works throughout history. A vast array of applications for Chinese characters have been developed in different places. All kinds of creative adaptations can be found in the works of craftsmen, artists, literati, and even calligraphers. They can also be found in the everyday lives of ordinary people, through their games, religions, festivals, and ceremonies. The exhibition presents the value of Chinese characters in our cultural lifestyle and contemporary creation through research on Chinese characters in different areas, providing visitors with multiple perspectives to explore the relationship between Chinese characters, calligraphy and art creativity.
