曲水回眸:小思眼中的香港 (5.9.2016 – 31.10.2016)

Looking Back at the Meandering Waters: Hong Kong in the Eyes of Xiao Si

香港中文大學將於本年9月5日至10月31日舉辦「曲水回眸:小思眼中的香港」展覽,由香港文學研究中心與大學圖書館合辦,展出香港作家、香港文學研究者盧瑋鑾教授(小思)的藏品。

是次展覽配合香港文學研究中心「文化人眼中的香港」口述歷史訪談計劃,第一階段為小思訪談。小思多年來把親歷的人事變遷化為散文創作,而身為香港文學史料的蒐集及研究者,她更以回眸的方式追尋香港的面貌。展覽主題「曲水回眸」中「曲水」一詞,正取義於王羲之〈蘭亭集序〉的「流觴曲水」、「情隨事遷」、「後之視今,亦猶今之視昔」,寓意文化人回眸省察過去。

展覽將展出小思的珍貴藏品,包括與香港文化息息相關的珍稀書刊、小報、通俗書刊和資料卡片等。通過是次展覽,讀者可以從小思的創作、研究和收藏之中,以小見大,了解香港在不同方面的發展步跡,看見作家小思、學者盧瑋鑾「眼中」的香港。另設兩場講座,分別就小思的香港文學資料蒐羅整理、研究成果,以及香港文學散步和散文書寫,作深入淺出的介紹。

Co-organized by the Hong Kong Literature Research Centre (HKLRC) and the Chinese University of Hong Kong Library, the exhibition Looking Back at the Meandering Waters: Hong Kong in the Eyes of Xiao Si will be held from September 5 to October 31, 2016.

HKLRC started an oral history project namely “Hong Kong in the Eyes of Literati” in 2014 and the first interview was with Xiao Si (Prof. Lo Wai-luen). The autobiographical interview covers her insights on research, education and literary creation. Looking Back at the Meandering Waters refers to the well-known calligrapher Wang Xizhi’ (王羲之) who composed the preface Lantingji Xu (蘭亭集序) for the poetry collection in view of the ever-changing life and backward-looking generations. The exhibition echoes with the retrospective spirit towards the origin of our culture.

Being a scholar, a teacher and a writer, Xiao Si’s contributions left permanent marks on various aspects. Her bequeathed collection of books, manuscripts and archives, along with the establishment of the HKLRC underpin some of the most significant developments in Hong Kong literary studies. The exhibition highlights the key collections of Xiao Si under the headings of “Personal Writings and Manuscripts”, “Vintage Books and Periodicals”, “Newspapers and Tabloids”, “Indexes and Archives”, “Oral History and Interviews” and “Hong Kong Literary Walks”. Two sets of talks introduce the themes accordingly, granting an easy access to an admirable scholar-writer and reminisces of Hong Kong culture.

Organizer: Jointly presented by the Hong Kong Literature Research Centre and CUHK Library
