Liu Heung Shing’s Portrait of China, as seen by Chinese photographers
劉香成看中國
17.5 – 29.7.2012

The photographic exhibition “Liu Heung Shing’s Portrait of China, as seen by Chinese Photographers” charts the history of the sixty years of the People’s Republic (1949 to 2008) in 5 time frames; featuring significant milestones and stages in the development of China through Liu’s collections.

From the Declaration of the People’s Republic in 1949 to the Cultural Revolution, the visual history bespeaks the momentous task of applying new socialist ideology from Chairman Mao and the rise of industrialization. During the post-Mao era, portraits of people under the “open door” policy visualize the leadership of Deng Xiaoping vividly, China has then taken a great leap forward into the modern age. Along the way, Liu aims to illustrate the humanistic course: to show how Chinese society has blossomed in spite of the extraordinary hardship and ideological extremity of the previous decades.

About the Exhibition
Up to 70 photos will be showed in this exhibition. The exhibition has been held at China in 2008 (Today Art Museum in Beijing) and Spain in 2009 (Casa Asia, Barcelona/Madrid) but it is its first time in Hong Kong.
