0771 Photography Art Exhibition
During the 10th anniversary of the handover, many celebration activities that are funded by the government take place in the city. The 10th anniversary is described as absolutely cheerful and positive. In fact, in the past decade, Hong Kong has gone through many 'crisises,' though also has had certain 'opportunities.' It seems to be a political strategy to provide tons of entertainment programs in order to encourage the locals to forget the dissatisfaction of government. In fact, these celebration events seldom involve the public to critically review the past 10 years or to allow them to express their own opinions about the present moment.
As an alternative, the exhibit 0771 attempts to actively engage the public to express their views of 2007.7.1 through photographic images. Besides the exhibiting artists, Kith Tsang, Anothermountainman and Kacey Wong, C&G Artpartment invited the public to submit a photo taken on the July 1st for the exhibit, 0771. These images do not only give a good picture of how some Hongkongers choose to spend their July 1st of 2007, and also allow each photo-taker to tell his/her own story of 7.1.
