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,
