5-year Bruce Lee exhibition to open in Hong Kong
A five-year Bruce Lee exhibition is set to open in Hong Kong's Heritage Museum on July 20, 2013, to mark the actor's 40th death anniversary.
More than 600 items linked to Lee will be featured, including photos, the CNN reported. Lee also wrote poems, some of which are featured in the exhibition.
The exhibition gathers more than 600 items related to Lee from collectors and various institutions, including more than 400 from the Bruce Lee Foundation -- the largest number of artifacts the foundation has ever lent out.
Among the exhibits are his iconic yellow tracksuit, footage from Lee’s eight classic films (including ‘The Big Boss,’ ‘Fists of Fury,’ ‘The Way of the Dragon,’ ‘Enter the Dragon’ and ‘Game of Death’), the first American magazine cover featuring Lee and the notebook he kept featuring 108 different cha cha dance steps.
The exhibition will recreate scenes from Lee’s movies, his gym and his study, and will also house a special collector series showcasing various items from around the world.
The first collection features more than 100 items from US collector Perry Lee, related to the TV series ‘The Green Hornet,’ in which Lee starred as Kato.
The Federation of Hong Kong Filmmakers has produced a 75-minute documentary, ‘The Brilliant Life of Bruce Lee,’ which will be screened in the museum.
Sculptor Chu Tat-shing has created a new 3.5-meter side-kicking statue of Lee and animation artist Shannon Ma will present a 3D hologram animation of Lee’s nunchaku moves and kicks.
The exhibition will run alongside other Bruce Lee programs organized by the museum, the first of which is themed, ‘The Bruce Lee that Hong Kong knew.’
