The Asia Art Archive (AAA) presents “Another Day in Hong Kong” through August 31.

The exhibition is an homage to the Hong Kong Arts Center’s 1990 exhibition “One Day in Hong Kong.” At the time, curator Oscar Ho asked Hong Kongers to take photographs of everyday people over a 24-hour period, which were then collected and exhibited.

Thirty-three years later, earlier this year, preparing an exhibition on the theme of memory, the AAA dug into the statistics of the organization’s collections database to find the median day. It was October 19, 1996. The exhibition team interviewed more than 100 people in Hong Kong’s art world about their memories of that day, and six Hong Kong artists created imaginative works based on the interviewees’ memories.

The exhibition talks about the small things that make up everyday life that are not recorded in mainstream history and questions new perspectives on art and history through archives, personal memory, imagination, and artistic intervention. Participating artists include KK Cheung, Florence Lam, Holly Lee, Lee Ka Sing, Ocean Leung, Siu King Chung, and To & Ling Are Covering Their Ears (To Yeuk and Lai Chun Ling).
