The Past is Continuing

1/F Corridor, New Territories Heritage Hall, Cantonese Opera Heritage Hall,

2/F Corridor and T.T. Tsui Gallery of Chinese Art
11 April 2015 – 28 September 2015

The train to the future makes 1000 years of history like a bygone yesterday.

Along the way, you will see scenes of China over the centuries and changes in Hong Kong over the past 100 years; you will meet trendy, self-confident women, dynamic revolutionaries, and ambitious, liberal-minded literati; and enjoy traditional performances, dedicate craftsmanship and touching stories.

Our past continues to thrive. A gateway to the past has been opened by 18 contemporary artists, who bring our history alive.

Participating Artists:
Halley Cheng, Chow Chun-fai, KaCaMa Design Lab, Koon Wai-bong, Lam Tung-pang, Lau Ching-ping, Hanison Lau, Wing Lee, Rosanna Li, Chris Lo, Aries Sin, Stanley Siu, Tang Kwok-hin, the pancakes, Johnson Tsang, Annie Wan, Justin Wong, XCEED

To complement the exhibition, other special programmes including public and family/children programmes will be organised for museum visitors:

Public Programme
