Inappropriate showpieces for exhibition

Your feature on David Clarke's Hong Kong Nocturne exhibition (Sunday Review, October 6) is described as a five-year historical snapshot of the city.

What did you offer us as an example of this artistic work? A montage of no less than two separate tobacco brands portrayed in three images. If this is typical of the content of the exhibition then it is unlikely to be much of an attraction.

Can anyone tell us why the products of two transnational tobacco companies were selected as the showpieces for this event?
