They are back, for the 1/8 population who are still hungry.
How would you draw global hunger? In 2012, thirteen Hong Kong artists expressed ideas about poverty and hunger in ONE-SEVENTH Exhibition, a collaboration between Oxfam Hong Kong and Groundwork Architecture+Urbanism Ltd. At that time, one out of seven people went hungry every day.
The right to food is a basic human right, yet almost one-eighth of our population still lives in hunger. So the exhibition is back, now titled “ONE-EIGHTH Exhibition”, and with two new artist from Macau joining the show. The art will tour both Hong Kong and Macau to inspire as many people as possible to join the GROW campaign for a fair food future.
