The Hong Kong Heritage Museum today (January 10) launched an exhibition titled "Long time no see, Victoria", which looks at the work of 17 artists and photographers from the museum's collection. The exhibition showcases the memories, interpretations and thinking of the artists during the colonial era. The exhibition runs until March 31.
