From April 8 to May 30 2010, be witness to one of the most unique events ever to hit Hong Kong.
Hope & Glory is a “conceptual circus” by Hong Kong-based Simon Birch; an English-born, Armenian artist. With painting as his first love, Simon received his formal training at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and has dabbled in design, music and sports.
In Hope & Glory, Simon gives us a one-of-a-kind multimedia arts project where he hopes to challenge existing and established art paradigms and takes his audience on an exciting adventure.
Hope & Glory is a collaborative project that is made possible with the help of many other musicians, designers, filmmakers and artists from Hong Kong & around the world. Some of the artists that collaborated on this project; artist Stanley Wong, photographer Wing Shya, British rock band UNKLE, filmmaker Eric Hu, designer Douglas Young, architect Paul Kember, actor Daniel Wu, and Beijing-based artist Cang Xi. The exhibit seeks to provide a refuge from our busy daily lives, and instill a sense of communal wonder to its audience.
In fact, Hope & Glory is such an anticipated and unprecedented show that the the HKSAR Mega Events Fund formally announced its support for the project with a pledge for 2 million HKD.
Pop in and check out the circus!
