Oi! launches "The 6th Artists in the Neighbourhood Scheme: 7-Paperholic" exhibition (with photos)

     An exhibition entitled "The 6th Artists in the Neighbourhood Scheme: 7-Paperholic" is being held at Oi! from today (April 22) to July 24, showcasing the landscape and the community of North Point from local artists' perspectives with the use of paper.

     One of the selected proposals of the 6th Artists in the Neighbourhood Scheme, the exhibition is curated by the project team Hong Kong Open Printshop with the participating artists being Ho Yuen-yu, Rex Koo, Liz Lau, Prodip Leung, Ranee Ng, Yeung Hok-tak and Alvin Yiu. Inspired by daily life in North Point, the artists have documented their thoughts and impressions of this old district in their works. The works not only show the diverse possibilities of paper as an art medium, but also encompass sentiments of the artists towards the community.

     In conjunction with the exhibition, guided tours will be held to let participants explore creative ideas through strolling along the streets and alleys in North Point. The artists will also conduct various types of paper-art workshops at Oi! and invite participants to savour the special flavour of the community. For details of the exhibition and programmes, please visit or call 2512 3000 for enquiries.

     The Artists in the Neighbourhood Scheme under the Art Promotion Office supports local artists to go into community and to promote visual arts. The works of about 200 artists have been showcased in different communities since the launch of the programme in 2000. In addition to promoting local art in the communities, the scheme emphasises the connection between contemporary art, local historical culture and humanity through the mutual creative process by the artists and local communities, which turns art and aesthetics into indispensable aspects of our daily lives.

     Oi! is located at 12 Oil Street, North Point, Hong Kong.
