Coinciding with the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the HKSAR, the Hong Kong Maritime Museum organises a special exhibition entitled Hong Kong’s Maritime Miracle: The Story of Our City since 1945. It defines Hong Kong’s miraculous rise from the ashes of World War II and the maritime foundation that was vital in remaking the city, in a selection of 25 representative exhibits. Hong Kong’s pre-war maritime connections facilitated her growth of an enormous global manufacturing powerhouse after the War. Containerisation in the 1970s was a key component to continue and build on this success and Hong Kong’s container trade volumes grew exponentially. When Mainland China opened up its economy in 1978, Hong Kong then outsourced much of its manufacturing into the Greater Bay Area whilst retaining her lead in finance and services. The maritime trade continues to support the growth of the Greater Bay Area, with Hong Kong at its heart.
The “Journey for Integrity” Experiential Exhibition cum “Integriteering” (portmanteau of “integrity” and “orienteering”) is the debut of ICAC’s first-ever Signature Event. Based on the concept of “Journey for Integrity”, it comprises a series of engaging activities and attractive exhibitions seasoned with new technologies and interactive elements. The event will provide an occasion for members of the community to reflect on the anti-corruption history of Hong Kong, and to understand the evils of corruption and the rule of law. “Journey for Integrity” has a two-fold meaning. On the one hand, it refers to the journey the public has been partnering with the ICAC in fighting corruption since its inception. On the other hand, it also represents each individual embracing the value of integrity in their life journeys and upholding a clean society together with the ICAC. Tai Kwun, the historic Central Police Station Compound where the Central Magistracy was located, is chosen as the venue of the event because it witnessed the first trial of Peter Godber’s case which led to the establishment of the ICAC, and the successful conviction of which had earned the trust of Hong Kong people.
With the application of projection art, the exhibition retraces the 60 years of development of the City Hall and local arts scene, peeps into the precious moment and revisits the fond memories of the Hong Kong people. Visitors are encouraged to experience the wonder of culture and the arts being blended with technology. During the sojourn of culture and arts development at the City Hall, their imagination about performing arts and the City Hall lingers on.
This exhibition’s photos show Hong Kong during consecutive periods, as it was seen around the middle of the last century. The images span some thirty years of great change: from the postwar recovery in 1946 – 1947, through the resilience of the 1950s, to the resurgence of the 1960s – 1970s. The photos were taken by three photographers. In the order of their Hong Kong work they were: Hedda Morrison, Lee Fook Chee and Brian Brake. Each had markedly different life backgrounds and photographic objectives.
To tie in with the first anniversary of the promulgation of the Law of the People's Republic of China on Safeguarding National Security in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (the Hong Kong National Security Law), the Security Bureau launched the Exhibition of the First Anniversary of the Promulgation of the Hong Kong National Security Law to enhance public understanding of the legislative background, importance and significance of the Hong Kong National Security Law, and to increase awareness of safeguarding national security. Being an online virtual exhibition, the public can conveniently view it anytime and anywhere. Comprising six zones, its rich content covers the importance of the Hong Kong National Security Law, its legal system and enforcement mechanisms, major provisions, the work of the disciplined forces in safeguarding national security, the effectiveness of the Hong Kong National Security Law, plus a wide range of reference materials. To bring more fun to visitors, the exhibition also covers relevant photos and short videos, various interactive elements, plus mini games for visitors to test their understanding of the Hong Kong National Security Law. The online exhibition especially uses The Lab gallery on the 5/F of the Hong Kong Museum of Art (HKMoA) as its virtual background, enabling visitors to navigate the exhibition as if they are physically at the gallery. The design and zoning of the exhibition also resonate well with the open view feature of the HKMoA gallery's three-sided glass facade, allowing visitors to enjoy the scenic views of Tsim Sha Tsui and Victoria Harbour while touring the exhibition.
