Description: Neither entirely Eastern nor definitively Western in its outlook, the work of Hong Kong artists oscillates between these two traditional polarities and shows how postcolonial artistic production is an ongong negotiation of differences, a tentative resolution of contradictions, and an ironic doubling of mainstream strategies that mimic and undermine the established modes.

Hong Kong Now! presents the works of nine contemporary Hong Kong artists: Lucia N. Y. Cheung, Simon Go, Oscar Ho, Ho Siu-kee, Leung Chi Wo, Ellen Pau, Grechen So, Wong Shun-kit, and Yu Tsz Man. Working with the freedoms and constraints created by the opposing forces of possible totalitarian rule, now that the 153-year-old British crown colony of Hong Kong has been transferred to the People's Republic of China, with the seemingly unlimited freemarket economies already in place, these artists have developed a spectrum of possible identities that exhibit the complex and even contradictory values that are endemic to Hong Kong.
