This volume is the first comprehensive survey of contemporary art from Hong Kong presented within the changing social and political context of the territory's 1997 handover from British to Chinese sovereignty. Tracing a distinctive and increasingly vibrant art scene from the late 1960s through the present, David Clark discusses a wide range of media, including painting, sculpture, photography, video and installations, as well as other kinds of visual production such as architecture, fashion, graphic design, and graffiti.
