Hong Kong for taitais

Hong Kong, such a small arts community, is hardly attractive to the international players but love means a lot here. I have so far met a few art professionals including curators/directors and editors of major art museums and magazines who relocated to Hong Kong in the name of love as their partners had to come to Hong Kong for their business and career. They were female art professionals and gave up their career for their husbands. Some of them continue their career (in smaller scale and capacity) in different ways but some might simply become a wealthy tai tai, occasionally doing some volunteer work for art organizations or other charity.

Mmm... maybe a lot of local artists are similar too, perhaps just not wealthy. Once Chan Yuk Keung said making art in Hong Kong just like doing for charity! I respect them all anyway.
