One of the astounding achievements and outcome of the Umbrella Movement has been the robust creative artworks that have sprung in the occupied spaces of Admiralty, Causeway Bay and Mongkok. Many of these artworks have been born out of the shear euphoria over the solidarity at the shared spaces. Some people have remarked that the artworks are a stark expression of a new found sense of belonging to HK. We are organizing this exhibition by way of asking ‘why has the UM nurtured such an amount of creativity? How does art play a role in social movement and how has it reacted with the occupied spaces?’ We have invited Mr Francesco Lietti, a painter who has done ‘participatory painting’ at Admiralty, Causeway Bay and Mongkok, by inviting by-passers to join in; Mr Him Lo (local artist), Ms Wen Yau & friends as well as Mr Walter Wang and Mr Edward Tse, students of Lingnan University, to share with us their work and their creative journeys during the movement.
