Last week, billionaire and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates said that he believes more than 50% of business travel and 30% of office life will disappear in the post-Covid-19 world. There is certainly no doubt that for now our work and travel activities remain severely restricted. Given this new normal, the European Union Office in Hong Kong and Macao and the German Consulate General Hong Kong recently joined forces to organise a music programme hoping to, at least temporarily, take audiences to places they can’t otherwise reach.
The fallout from this year’s Covid-19 pandemic and last year’s social unrest has been particularly disruptive for students. Classes have been stopped intermittently, and not everyone has equal access to online learning. These interruptions have made life particularly hard for those who need physical access to facilities and equipment to complete their work, such as students of art or other creative subjects. And the students, particularly in places like the Chinese University of Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, have also had the psychological effects of those factors to face.
Adia Millett is an American multi-media artist who incorporates quilting, painting, stitching, woodwork and diorama creation. In her first exhibition in Hong Kong, “A Matter of Time” at Galerie du Monde, Millett uses colourful hues, lines, shapes, patterns and textures to encourage viewers to construct their own meaning during committed moments spent experiencing her work.
