About the Exhibition
The Bruce Lee: Kung Fu ‧ Art ‧ Life Exhibition is presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department. It is jointly organized by the Bruce Lee Foundation and the Hong Kong Heritage Museum and is sponsored by Fortune Star Media Limited.
The legend of Bruce Lee’s life is intertwined with his confidence and charisma as well as a personal background that married East and West.
Born in San Francisco, Bruce Lee grew up in Hong Kong, where he enjoyed street fighting as a youngster; he was also a free-spirited child actor. At the age of 18, he went back to the US to pursue his studies, a journey that broadened the horizons of his life and his mind. With a passion to delve deep into the world of martial arts, this young man established his own kung fu training institute in the US. Merging philosophy into martial arts, he founded his own system, Jeet Kune Do, and became the pre-eminent kung fu grandmaster of his time. A charismatic actor, he also found fame in both the show business and martial arts community through his role as “Kato” in the US TV series The Green Hornet. Returning to Hong Kong in the early 1970s, he starred in a number of classic kung fu movies, including The Big Boss, Fist of Fury, The Way of the Dragon and Enter the Dragon. His dynamism as a film star and his achievements in the field of martial arts took the world by storm and made him an international icon.
Bruce Lee passed away in 1973, but his spirit lives on. In collaboration with the Bruce Lee Foundation of the US, Hong Kong Heritage Museum has gathered together more than 600 items of Bruce Lee memorabilia from local and overseas collectors to create an exhibition that looks at Bruce Lee not only as a film star and martial artist, but also as a cultural phenomenon from a more comprehensive, in-depth and independent perspective. Visitors will be able to gain a greater insight into his achievements and contributions as well as his significance in popular culture, as the exhibition takes a new angle in presenting the legend of Bruce Lee.
