“Why don’t we start over?” – “Happy Together” Dir. Wong Kar Wai
In unprecedented times, we are bound to experience our lives in flux with unknowns and uncertainties waiting for us in the future; yet, it is exactly these moments that truly break down our boundaries and strive through hindrances with togetherness. In the art world, the global pandemic, on one hand, brings worries and apprehensions just like in other industries, on the other hand, more than ever, it is also an unstoppable force that drives all sectors as a community to collaborate in synergy. Throwing back to a saying that is recapped for a thousand times by the audience and by the young mind –”why don’t we start over?” Why don’t we once again meet the heart of the artists who are always by our side? To start over, to be happy together, tiptoe to the night in Central West Hong Kong on 24 September 2020 for an art walk through ups and downs, you may witness the most beautiful comeback of the year 2020. Participating art galleries will offer not only special exhibitions that feature different artistic pursuits, but also live performance one after another, in an attempt to bring in new life and new perspectives to the present moment.
To announce and celebrate the first edition of Central West Hong Kong, there will be a press preview and event launch at Liang Yi Museum at 2:45 PM and 3:15 PM respectively, in addition to the museum tour given by the museum staff onwards. Starting from 4:00 PM, the public can start their gallery walk and visit this debut edition’s eight participating galleries, including Blue Lotus Gallery, Contemporary by Angela Li, Karin Weber Gallery, La Galerie Paris 1839, Leo Gallery, Ora-Ora, Over the Influence, and Soluna Fine Art.
