Fragile Impressions: Photographs taken in China on behalf of the China Inland Mission (20 / 11 - 14 / 12 / 2017)

In the exhibition “Fragile Impressions”, we present a selection of 26 lantern slides and glass and film negatives from the “China through the Eyes of CIM Missionaries” HKBU Library Special Collection. The selection represents “Fragile Impressions” in two ways: fragility and flimsiness in physical condition and the very fragile and ephemeral nature of the photographed. Many of the photographs are either printed on or enclosed by brittle glass plates, some of which are heavily damaged. In addition, the images’ motifs are “fragile” and unstable. Many of the photographs appear to be records of everyday life and historic snapshots, but, as we see when we look more closely, were in fact staged for the camera.

Date: 20 November - 14 December, 2017

She says – Photographing Ethnic Minority Women of Hong Kong (4/1 - 7 / 2 / 2017)

“She says – Photographing Hong Kong Ethnic Minority Women” is Hong Kong Unison’s second collaboration with photojournalist Lam Chun Tung. Through this series of portraits and stories of 17 women from diverse backgrounds, we set out to tell their life stories and break stereotypes. What we captured at the end was picture upon picture of courage, compassion, strength and grace.

We hope that this series of photos and stories will begin to foster mutual understanding, so that Hong Kongers shall see past the one-dimensional stereotypes, and get to appreciate ethnic minorities as diverse individuals who contribute to the social fabric of Hong Kong. 

【她說 ─ 鏡頭下的少數族裔香港女性】是香港融樂會與攝影記者林振東的第二度合作。透過十七位香港少數族裔女性的相片和故事,她們訴說對生活堅毅而自信的想法,流露出溫暖而硬朗的特質。

希望本相冊可促進社會對少數族裔人士的互相理解,拋開過往對少數族裔單一的定型,重新認識每一位令香港社會文化更豐富的個體。同時,通過相展大眾可了解和欣賞少數族裔人士對香港作出的努力和貢獻。

休憩空間與歷史記憶: 全球中山公園圖片展 (2016年11月11日至12月29日)

顧名思義,中山公園是以孫中山先生(1866-1925)命名的公園,具有紀念孫中山先生的目的與意義。根據目前能掌握的資料,全球中山公園現有106個,分佈兩岸四地(中國大陸香港、澳門、台灣)、美國、加拿大、新加坡。雖然未能說有華人的地方就有中山公園,但設立中山公園的確是紀念孫中山先生的其中一種重要途徑。

為了紀念孫中山先生,1925年以後不少已建及新建的公園,相繼以「中山」命名,據估計民國時期共有超過300個。中山公園不但是全球最多以相同名稱命名的公園之一,亦承載了海內外華人對孫中山先生的情感與敬仰。中山公園能在不同時期、不同地點、不同意識形態下存在,不單發揮提供休憩的功能,亦同時展現民眾對孫中山先生的紀念,很值得進一步研究。

在紀念孫中山誕辰150週年之際,我們不但緬懷孫中山生前推動革命的貢獻,更要了解各種的紀念方式如何建構出孫中山的「國父」形象,成為全球華人共同敬仰的英雄人物。

這次展覽分為三部分﹕「歷史」、「現狀」與「特寫」,將透過不同的歷史資料考察中山公園興建的歷史背景與過程,並對現存106個中山公園的特色、設施作整體的展示,最後重點介紹多個中山公園的故事及發展。殷切期望本展覽能引發您對中山公園的興趣,以及對孫中山先生偉人形象的反思。

展覽日期: 2016年11月11日至12月29日

Imagined Lives Exhibition: Responses to the HKBU Library Chinese Propaganda Posters Collection

The 2015-2016 class of Anthropology of Art (AVA) used the HKBU Library Chinese Propaganda Poster collection as primary source materials. The students each chose a poster from the collection that appealed directly to them on an immediate, superficial level. They then embarked on an in-depth study of their chosen poster as both a visual reality and a lived reality that impacted on the lives of the people around it.

Their research had them following the development of the medium from the birth of mass advertising on the streets of fin de siècle Paris to a powerful tool for mobilising nations in times of great turmoil. After detailed contextual analysis of their posters, they then set about the more speculative Imagined Lives Projects. This project brought the focus back to the individual, with the students imagining a protagonist caught up in the great events.

This exhibition presents a selection of these projects alongside a larger selection from the library collection.

Check out the library poster collection here.
