**************************************************

     The exhibition of a cross-strait four regions artistic exchange project showcasing works of art by 16 artists from the Mainland, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Macau opened today (January 18) at the Hong Kong City Hall.

     Launched in 2008 and now in its fifth edition, the cultural exchange programme is organised with the aim of fostering closer ties among the regions in the realm of contemporary art.

     The Under Secretary for Home Affairs, Ms Florence Hui, officiated at today's opening ceremony of the exhibition, entitled "Crossroads·Another Dimension - A Cross-Strait Four Regions Artistic Exchange Project 2013".

     Carrying the central theme "Crossroads·Another Dimension", the touring exhibition was presented in the Mainland, Taiwan and Macau last year, and Hong Kong is the exhibition's final stop.

     The exhibition features paintings, art/video/sound/visual installations and new media works by artists from the four regions: Leung Chi-wo, Kingsley Ng, Kacey Wong and Samson Young from Hong Kong; Li Binyuan, Xu Bacheng, Xu Bing and Yin Xiuzhen from the Mainland, Konstantin Bessmertny, Bianca Lei, Peng Yun and Tong Chong from Macau; and Chen Po-i, Tsui Kuang-yu, Labay Eyong and Lee Ming-tse from Taiwan.
