Hong Kong Arts Centre presents “Retrospect: 60 Years of Hong Kong Comics and Animation“.
While the development of Hong Kong comics can be traced back to the late 19th century to early 20th century, it was not until the 1960s that independent and complete animated feature films began to appear in the mass media. The themes, forms, as well as artistic styles of local comics and animations are influenced by the society, and reflect the social conditions and spirit of each era, making these comics and animations significant embodiment of Hong Kong’s history. This exhibition explores the development trends of local comics and animations in the recent six decades in the form of a timeline, re-examining the characteristics of both art forms in relation to the local community and culture in each era. The exhibition is sponsored by CreateHK as one of the programmes celebrating the Comix Home Base’s 3rd anniversary.
