Magnum photographer Elliot Erwitt, Jazz pianist Hiromi Uehara, Miguel Chevalier "Digital Paradise", 00:21:59 2014-10-15
Elliott Erwitt is generally known for his candid black and white street photographs, and describes street photography as an art of observation. In his sixty year career, he’s also shot portraits of such luminaries as Marilyn Monroe, Jackie Kennedy, and Che Guevara, as well as of one of his favourite subjects, dogs. We talked to Elliott Erwitt as he opened his exhibition at the F11 Photographic Museum in Happy Valley.

Japanese pianist Hiromi Uehara gives a new face to the piano trio, combining jazz with progressive rock influences. She came to Hong Kong last month with her group, The Trio Project, which she says she wants to have the breadth of sound of an orchestra.

Artist, Miguel Chevalier uses the computer to create his virtual and digital art. For him, technology brings the opportunity to open up and explore uncharted fields in the visual arts. Now on show at the Puerta Roja gallery, “Digital Paradise” is his first exhibition in Hong Kong.

The music of the Swedish pop group, ABBA was the inspiration for the West End musical hit MAMMA MIA! But the musical’s plot does not focus on the group but on family and friendship on a Greek island. In this week’s show, we end with a preview of the production currently in Hong Kong, with almost the entire cast.
