The University of Chicago Hong Kong and two unique local organizations will present old Hong Kong visually. Funded by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, the exhibition will feature 1960s miniature replicas of buildings from Wind Concept Art & Culture Association, its first public display.  We will also feature AI-enabled colorized images from the 20th century contributed by OldHKinColour. Through these colorful historical pictures and miniatures, the bricks and stones of Hong Kong architecture, culture, and history will bring the past to life.

Exhibition Partner:

OldHKinColour (oldhkincolour.org) focuses on colorizing and animating old Hong Kong photos by using artificial intelligence and post-editing techniques with a view to promoting public education through history. (Exhibited Image and video list)

Wind Concept Art & Culture Association strives to promote art and cultural conservation through the efforts of Mr. Daniel Wong Wing Fai since 2018.  In 2021, the old Hong Kong miniature project was launched by Mr. Eric Yung and Miss Kay Kan, who hand-crafted a set of nostalgic 1960s Hong Kong buildings.
