Oct. 25 – Jan. 15, 2011
SCAD Gallery | 2F, 30-32 Wyndham St., Central, Hong Kong,
The SCAD exhibitions department presents "City of Exile," a photographic exhibition by SCAD alumnus Jim Lind (B.F.A., photography, 2010). Lind's images depict sparsely populated dark and desolate cinematic scapes wrought with destruction and ruin. As a metaphor for human resilience Lind's figures emerge from these scenes with physical momentum or are captured in warm, theatrical light suggesting hopefulness, adaptation and perseverance.
Gallery talk and reception: Jan. 13, 2011, 6-8 p.m.
Gallery hours: Monday-Saturday, 10:30 a.m.-7:30 p.m.
Exhibition is free and open to the public.

City of Exile
As a sign of the current times, people are losing jobs, businesses, homes and a general quality of living at an alarming rate. When bad news comes it’s all too easy to curl up in a ball and accept defeat. Rather, I see it as the perfect time for growth and discovery. In each scene, the individuals are adapting to the changing environment and progressing forward. The images present a tangible hopefulness that is inherent in all grim situations. Like any of the dark periods in our long history, this too will pass.
