Everlasting anxiety. A moment of peace seems unprecedentedly luxurious. Perhaps we should ask ourselves: where could we find an escape from the reality that suffocates us? Although we might not be able to find any way to discharge our burden, we could still try to seek a moment of peace for ourselves. This upcoming November, with the theme of “Art X Fantasy”, Hong Kong Arts Centre (HKAC)’s signature programme – “Late Night Series – Art X”, will bring all walks of life together and light up your soul with a wide range of artworks. Let us put aside our grievances while embracing our own emotions in tranquillity.
