Art in Community - Retail Ephemera: Graphic design in Hong Kong 1960-80s


First shown in HKDI’s CIMT before March 2019, the exhibition now travels to Tiu Keng Leng Public Library. This exhibition displays a selection of artefacts from the Hong Kong Graphic Archive, a future teaching and research archive at HKDI that studies and preserves Hong Kong’s rich visual culture and heritage. It maps the development retail ephemera – printed artefacts that are only meant to have fleeting promotional value – through three decades, focusing on department store wrapping paper in particular.
