Hong Kong artist Amy Cheung's art fashion amalgam

Hong Kong artist Amy Cheung's “Hankie Bank: Boundaries are of Equal Length” turned a former Citi-Bank in Midtown Manhattan into an immersive theatre and participatory stock exchange. From October 16 to 20, the vacated 8,000-ft site will feature installations by multi-media artists working across a broad spectrum of disciplines. The exhibits will include the latest fashion masterpieces by Amy, who is also a fashion designer.

Speaking at the opening night reception on October 16, Deputy Director of HKETONY, Mr. Paul Cheung, highlighted that Hong Kong is now playing a new role as Asian’s art capital in addition to being a city of trade and finance. The seamless match of arts and business has given Hong Kong a flourishing arts scene that is unprecedented. Mr. Cheung also noted that Amy has her flagship store in Former Police Married Quarters in HK which has become a design hub that aims to raise the public profile of local design by giving designers more opportunities to build their own brands. The NYETO is a supporter of Amy's exhibition in New York.

The exhibition will conclude with a finale sales event – all pieces from the collection Boundaries are of Equal Length on display will be available for purchase.
