The exhibition catalogue has showcased works of 60 Hong Kong artists in the period of 1970-1980 selected from the collection of contemporary art in Hong Kong Museum of Art. From this exhibition, one can see a wide range of media deployed by the artists whom can be divided into three groups. They are representatives of those whose artistic standing has been established before 1960, those mostly have matured in the first half of the 1960s, and those have begun their career in the late 1960s and early 70s.
Artists' biographies are included.

Writing Hong Kong Art History

Since its inception, AAA has been conducting research and focusing documentation efforts upon the art ecology in Hong Kong, while collecting primary and secondary materials. These endeavours extend to collaborative projects with museums, universities, and individuals holding personal archives. This section highlights materials from the Research and Library Collections, following lines of inquiry such as exhibition history, art pedagogy, art writing in Chinese and English, and modes of exchange between Hong Kong and other geographies.
