Art Gallery — Vibrant Cultures around the World

Echoing the Theme of the Year, a dedicated zone "Around the World through Words" will introduce readers to nine Hong Kong travel writers of different backgrounds. They include Leung Ping Kwan and Xi Xi (litterateurs), Albert Wong (cruise expert), Rebecca Lee (explorer), Sonia Ng and Jason Wordie (historians), Zhou Yijun (veteran international journalist), Kam Ling (novelist) and Celia Cheng (writer and photographer). The zone will showcase how their works are derived from the items and photos which were used or collected during their journeys so as to enhance public understanding of their travel works. During the Book Fair, Theme of the Year: Travel Seminar Series will be organised, with travel writers telling their own stories and scholars analyzing different travel works.

At the "Beyond the Picture" zone, the organiser is in collaboration with the National Geographic magazine to showcase photos of cultures, landscapes, sceneries and architecture in Hong Kong and worldwide, including award-winning photos so that readers can experience the feelings and passions of photographers through their images. In addition, the zone will also display a collection of photos, postcards and stamps showcasing Hong Kong's past and the works of famous illustrator Lee Chi Ching including street markets, fruit stalls, housing estates and fishing boats in Hong Kong, allowing us to revisit the good old days of Hong Kong.

Apart from travel related zones, this year's Art Gallery will also feature "A Journey to Sichuan" exhibition. Sichuan Province enjoys a reputation as the Land of Abundance. Exhibits will be catagorised into four main themes — exploring the ancient Sichuan civilisation, understanding famous historical figures, appreciating the works of literary masters and viewing the customs of ancient Sichuan. Interesting performances such as Sichuan 'face-changing' operas, tea art performances and ancient string instrument performances will be arranged.
