A Parallel Tale: Taipei in 80s X Hong Kong in 90s
漫漫畫雙城：臺北80 X 香港90
“Hong Kong Week 2013@Taipei” A Parallel Tale: Taipei in 80s X Hong Kong in 90s
What are Hong Kong and Taiwanese comics artists’ impressions of the other city?
Artists from Hong Kong and Taiwan will be joining forces to create an original and imaginative “parallel tale” of the two cities. They will depict their impressions of the cultural scene of their counterpart’s city in the 80s and 90s through distinctive styles and pen strokes. These delightful manuscripts tell a story that is unique to the two regions – there are no pirates or robotic cats, but instead, a setting that is rich in local culture. It is a search for the feeling of familiarity between the two cities through the medium of comic art.
In addition to the exhibition, a series of side events will be held, including artist sharing sessions, live drawing demonstrations and a comic book crossing campaign, serving to foster dialogue between the general public, practitioners and creative talents while providing a sharing platform for like-minded comics fans. All these interactive events will enable deep understanding of the comics and cultural scene of the two cities.
Emphasising on interaction and exchange between Hong Kong and Taiwan, the exhibition will tour to Hong Kong in 2014.
