Rituals of Passage Exhibition
This exhibition was curated by HKU alumni Lesley Cheung and supported by HKU Common Core and Locus Creative. It is the culmination project of the Curatorship Incubation Programme organised by HART.
Rituals of Passage – A Graduation Show of the Plague Year is a mise-en-scène of resilient living. Contemplating on disruption and discomfort during the plague years of 2019-2021 in Hong Kong, 6 artists stage their perspectives on self-discovery, coping strategies and meaning-making. The exhibition serves as a narrative of learning and change. Graduation is taken in a broad sense: who are better students in a graduation show about life in turbulence than us, the ordinary people? From what did we evolve, or graduate? In this regard, the exhibition spotlights amateur artists who met their creative selves these two years, each with a deeply personal story to tell.
