anothermountainman Hong Kong Walk On / one
As the Hong Kong Museum of Art heads into its 60th anniversary, Taiping Carpets Limited and the artist anothermountainman gifted Hong Kong Walk On / one, an artwork from the artist's iconic red white blue series, to the museum in a nod to its commitment to keep striving for a better future with the city's people. This carpet piece was hand-tufted using 64 different hues of red, white and blue and 628 colour combinations of yarn. By applying intricate craftsmanship and a photorealistic design on a canvas, artisans created a visual illusion of the crumpled texture of the original fabric, reinterpreting the red white blue series. The work won the Grand Award of the DFA Design for Asia Awards 2022.

The Queen of Huadan– Celebrating the Stage and Screen Career of Fong Yim-fun
Stars rely solely on themselves to build their own images. Whether they are well styled or not—on camera or off—depends entirely on their own taste and skills.' Famed fashion designer William Tang wrote in 2002 that in 1950s Cantonese films, the best-dressed person is undoubtedly Fong Yim-fun! That inspired us to search in film for Fong's taste in fashion. We are blessed that Edith Cheung, Golden Horse Awards winner in Best Costume and Makeup Design and Best Film Art Direction as well as a curator who ventures between art and commerce, has participated in the preparation of this exhibition. We combed through dozens of Fong's films and selected several striking images of the actress that are expressed through fashion. It is our hope that audiences will be able to enjoy these beautiful spectacles while coming to an appreciation of Fong Yim-fun's sense of style and her talent in animating her characters through clothing.

Lost and Sound - Hong Kong Intangible Cultural Heritage
Hong Kong has preserved a wide variety of periodic traditional events, including festivals, birthdays of deities, ancestral worship and the Jiao Festival. These events not only embrace our rich and long history, but are also a testimony to the folk wisdom of traditional craftsmanship and the vibrancy of folk culture. Some of these festivals and craftmanship have been inscribed on the Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) Inventory of Hong Kong. The exhibition showcases a variety of ICH items associated with traditional festivals and craftsmanship in an innovative way, by presenting them according to four types of sounds, namely "vocal", "instrumental", "physical" and "situational". These different aspects refer, repectively, to the sounds produced by the throat, the clattering sounds generated by instruments, the sounds produced by body movement, and the noise of the hustle and bustle heard at different festive occasions. Through the display of the relevant crafts created, articles or tool used, and recordings and videos, visitors can experience the wide diversity of these events and appreciate the timeless ingenuity and perseverance embedded in Hong Kong's ICH.
