“A Path to Glory—Jin Yong’s Centennial Memorial” is a six-month event celebrating the one-hundredth anniversary of the birth of Chinese literary giant Jin Yong, also known as Louis Cha. 

Having revolutionised the genre of wuxia novels with notable works such as The Legend of the Condor Heroes and its sequel, The Return of the Condor Heroes, Jin Yong’s creations have shaped the literary and cultural landscape of Chinese literature in Hong Kong and beyond. 

“A Path to Glory” comprises two exhibitions, each bringing to life the heroes of Jin Yong’s stories through immersive digital experiences, sculptures, paintings, calligraphy, film and television, and music. “The World of Wuxia” takes place at Edinburgh Place and features 10 sculptures by Chinese artist Ren Zhe, each depicting one of Jin Yong’s iconic characters; a yurt inspired by the film The Eagle-Shooting Heroes (1993), and other scene and costume recreations immersing visitors into the world of battle and glory of Jin Yong’s stories. A series of reading sessions, concerts, and painting workshops will be held alongside the exhibition until it ends on 2 July.

For those looking for a more artistic experience, visit the sculpture exhibition at the Hong Kong Heritage Museum on show until 7 October. Visitors will find 22 sculptures of Jin Yong’s characters by Ren alongside sculptural manuscripts, immersive experiences, and a series of seminars and talks. Find out more here.
