Catalogue of joint exhibition held at Shanghai MoCA in 2007. 'Reversing Horizons alludes to the remapping of what one previously considered to be the geopolitical as well as conceptual boundaries of Hong Kong as a result of the Handover. The return to the motherland has instigated an exploration into the identity of Hong Kong and its place on the world stage. Local artists have since been confronted with new onslaughts of inspiration, with which they shall reconcile by indulging in the same creative energies as their mainland counterparts. This exhibition shall symbolize the nation's very first effort at presenting a comprehensive purview of contemporary art in Hong Kong.' - Samuel Kung, Chairman and Director of Shanghai MoCA. Please note that the ifva (Hong Kong Short Film and Video Awards) is also invited to curate a short programme of twenty works for the exhibition.
