Ital­ian-born, Hong Kong-based artist Francesco Li­etti has cre­ated four gi­gan­tic pieces of art—with the col­lab­o­ra­tion of crowds of ac­tivists, chil­dren and passers-by dur­ing Oc­cupy, as well as in Kowloon Park dur­ing this year’s Bi-city Bi­en­nale. He set up can­vases at both and en­cour­aged peo­ple to paint what they wanted, and then col­laged them to­gether to cre­ate en­tirely new works, cen­tered around Hong Kong and the city’s fu­ture. “Colours of Hong Kong” com­prises these large-scale works, as well as pho­to­graphs and videos by fel­low artists Tif­fany Szeto and Thien-Ty Ly which fol­low the process of their cre­ation. And if the fu­ture of Hong Kong is pep­pered with HK Mag­a­zine’s newsprint, we’re happy to em­brace it. Through Aug 31. Ex­hi­bi­tion Gallery of New Asia Col­lege, Ch’ien Mu Library,
