Foo Tak Building looks traditional and ordinary. It is a typical commercial/residential building having 14 floors with two units on each floor. Since 2003, there have been 18 units leased to art and cultural entities at a sponsored rate through ACO. The exhibition is held at the newly renovated ACO, where artworks of 4 parties working at FTB will be shown (some works are available for sales). What would this symphony be like?

Lumli and Lumlong, born into working-class families, Lumli and Lumlong studied Fine Arts in France together for 5 years with very limited monetary resources. After returning to Hong Kong, they couple have become teachers of Fine Arts, and at the same time, engaged in artistic creations. Their artworks have been exhibited in Hong Kong and Paris.
