Arrivals and Departures is the first major exhibition on Hong Kong to take place in the UK, and marks the ten year anniversary of the city’s handover from Britain to China.

The exhibition looks at one of the world’s most diverse and exciting cities through 10 fascinating new commissions created by 5 British Chinese artists and 5 Hong Kong based artists, each presenting different perspectives of the city as a place both near and far, real and imagined. Exploring the collision of cultures and its affects on a rapidly changing city which is a continual influx and migration of population, the exhibition looks at the many layers which create contemporary Hong Kong from tourist imagery, urban myths, city scapes and family histories.

Arrivals and Departures is an Urbis exhibition curated by UK-based Sally Lai and Yuen Fong Ling, in collaboration with Hong Kong-based curatorial partners Howard Chan and Siu King-Chung.
