To Voice, shares a selection of informal protest art created during Hong Kong's 2014 Umbrella Movement that involved hundreds of thousands of people who occupied different parts of the city for over 70 days. Hong Kong-based curator, artist and urbanist Sampson Wong has grouped the work of artists, collectives and grassroots activities to provide a window into how creative practitioners became an important driving force within the Umbrella Movement. The exhibition features various innovative strategies ranging from the Voices on Skin Project that supplied protest slogans as temporary tattoos, to the multi lingual online message board by The Add Oil team, and the photography of Tse Pak Chai documenting the ingenuity of the protest barricades. These works together with ephemeral artefacts gathered from the occupations provide a concise informative glimpse of the considerable creativity that flourished during this massive protest.

To Voice is a travelling exhibition from The Physics Room in Christchurch.
