A Museum of Hybridity: The History of the Display of Art in the Public Museum of Hong Kong, and Its Implications for Cultural Identities
'This essay demonstrates the ways in which the official Museum of Art in Hong Kong realizes its strategies and influences of identity formation by using its resources and representative position in both colonial and postcolonial spaces. [...] Through a historical survey and investigation of some displays of art there, the essay shows how the museum incorporates the concept of cultural identity, challenges its stability and hegemony, and reformulates its meaning and content.'
