In Between: Public Humans in Hong Kong

John Nicholas Brown Center for Public Humanities and Cultural Heritage
, Carriage House Gallery

In four parts, this exhibit showcases the creativity of the Brown students and faculty who visited Hong Kong in January 2019. These works were also shown at April’s On the Edge Arts Festival sponsored by the Cultural Management Programme of the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Two sections of this exhibit focus on Lo Ting, a mythical half-fish, half-human creature, who comes from Lantau Island, a place we visited on our trip. Other students explored Hong Kong’s food scene and present photographs and thoughts about what we ate. Finally, Jasmine Chu’s art piece “Between Tide” explores issues of identity, memory and (un)belonging.

Student Travelers: Jasmine Chu, Yilin (Elaine) Huang, Zuohan (Bella) Jiang, Sharon Lin, Alyson Myers, Molly Paillet, Johanna Obenda, Julia Renaud, Ryan Saglio
