On November 25th 2012, I published news of the K11 Art Space, the Worlds First Art Mall, which is located in the Tsim Sha Tsui district of the city of Hong Kong.

The K11 Art Space Art Mall has grown considerably since I first wrote about it here! Like many visitors to Hong Kong, I quickly found myself in the Tsim Sha Tsui district shortly after arrival, on direct route from the airport, in search of an affordable room and the best places to shop. The Tsim Sha Tsui district has a lovely night view of the waterfront and city skyline, a public fine arts library, and a new fine arts museum under construction.

  • K11 Art Space now publishes the free Artoid art magazine.
  • K11 Art Space is showcasing the Photography Exhibition – Scenes of the City, on view from the 6th of January to the 3rd of February 2015. Photographs by expatriate Hong Kong resident from The Philippines, Xyza Cruz Bacani. Her work has been featured in The New York Times and Vogue.

K11 Art Space Art Mall exhibits, promotes and sells local artists and artists based internationally in live exhibitions, online, and in their K11 Design Store. K11 Design Store features budding and exceptional designers from all over the world every season. In the past they have feature design works by an American living as an expatriate in Thailand and other artist-designers living in France and Italy.

Lomography Movement Sweeping the Globe

Hongkong

Hongkong

Lomography is an international community of Lomographic photographers who advocate creative and experimental film photography, often shooting with outdated 35mm films in cheap toy cameras, creating off-color, out of focus, vignette effects that produce one of a kind photographs.

There are over 30 Lomography Gallery Stores worldwide and an online shop. Lomography has become pervasive. I noticed several lomo cameras for sale in the Andy Warhol Museum gift shop on my last visit. The first Lomography Gallery Store in China opened in the Sheung Whan district of Hong Kong in 2007, and now a second Lomography Gallery Store on Granville Road, in the Tsim Sha Tsui district of Hong Kong functions as both a gallery and hangout and is the base for promoting Lomographic culture in the Asia Pacific.

It is interesting to me to see the lomography movement take root in Hong Kong, where I lived for two years. What better place than the jostling streets of Hong Kong, packed with thousands of people on the move day and night, filled with opportunities to make the bokeh images characteristic of lomography.

“Lomography began with a fateful encounter in the early 1990s, when two students from Vienna, stumbled upon the Lomo Kompakt Automat, a small, enigmatic Russian camera. They were astounded with the mind-blowing photos that it produced, the colours were vibrant, with deep saturation and vignettes that framed the shot. It was nothing like they had seen before. Upon returning home, friends wanted their own Lomo LC-A, igniting a new style of artistic experimental photography that we now know as Lomography.”  http://anyimage.net/tag/lomography/

 Lomography.com serves as the communication hub for Lomographers worldwide. The sum of this movement–you don’t have to be a photographer to make lomographic prints as part of your artists output and sales.
