Make a Detour

Detour 2011 opened this weekend. This HK art and design festival is interesting not only for its art installations and local designers' fair, but for the fact that it is held in an iconic building which you wouldn't normally get to visit. Last year, it was held in the central police station compound and Victoria prison on Hollywood Road, Central. This year, it's a few minutes walk from there in the direction of Sheung Wan, in the former police married quarters.


In terms of both art and heritage, the show is photo-opp galore, so predictably, full of people with cameras. Readers of this blog will know that umbrellas are a favourite theme of mine, so here are two umbrella-related offerings from this and last year's Detour events.

This year, it runs until 11 Dec. I recommend you make a detour and visit!
