Light Hours brings together 11 Canadian artists of Hong Kong descent to explore their relationship to this special city with a unique history. The locale known as Hong Kong exists physically and psychically, in both individual and collective memories. Coming from different generations and backgrounds, the artists all have their own personal connection and affiliation to the territory.

By focusing on Hong Kong and the Canada-Hong Kong relationship, Light Hours seeks to open up a discourse about the complexity and possibility of a Hong Kong Canadian identity during a critical time. The long history of migration and residency of Hong Kongers as guests in this land began in the early 1900s and continued steadily throughout the Second World War to the 1970s, reaching its height in the late 1980s to 1990s as a result of the Tiananmen Square Massacre and the Handover of the former British colony to Communist China. Since the Umbrella Movement in 2014 and the social unrest and political uncertainty created by Beijing’s tightening grip, a surge in migration has begun again.

This exhibition is an experiment and an attempt to examine the invisible ties between us on both sides of the Pacific. As the light hours quickly pass before darkness falls on the once liberal and prosperous Hong Kong, now is the time for us to speak out like never before.
