RESEARCHING 1920S:

  • fashion exhibit very helpful in providing specific references and examples
  • good references for art deco posters and graphics, certain furniture, textiles and home objects, though didn’t make distinction clear between high/working class
  • other museum visits needed for better understanding of ways of life during period

  • was the first time I have seen hong kong artists being exhibited in london museums, was incredibly proud and pleasantly surprised!
  • familiar with this series, was very popular in hong kong and brought to light the important issue of housing in overcrowded hk
  • incredibly powerful pictures that capture the feeling and lifestyle of living in such small rooms, from first hand experience of hk
