PRESENTED & ORGANIZED

United Leslie is a non profit making voluntary union initialized by a group of devoted fans of Mr. Leslie Cheung Kwok Wing with its first establishment in 2006.The primary objective of our union was to promote and elaborate the truthfulness, kindness, beautifulness and other distinctive spiritual quality of Leslie as a perfect prototype for the future heritage.

This year, on the 12th, September, 2016, Leslie will be celebrating his 60-year-old birthday (The Chinese sexagenarian cycle). It is also the 10th anniversary for establishment of the United Leslie volunteer association. We would like to take this very special opportunity to organize an exhibition together with a series of other commemorating activities to advocate a valuable opportunity for the audience to appreciate the different artistic works of Leslie throughout his career life as an extraordinarily creative super star from a panoramic aspect.

1. “The Way We Were” The 60th Anniversary of Leslie Cheung exhibition

The masterpiece of Leslie remains unforgettable in the minds of many people until nowadays. Paralleling Leslie’s enormously successful musical career as the King of Canton-Pop, he was also devoted to star in many movies during his reign. In the last chapter of the movie ‘The Days of Being Wild’, the sneering of Yuddy for a legless bird on a train in the Philippines remains a perdurable fable in the mind of many audiences. Would Leslie be the living Yuddy in reality? What could be the genuine stories behind the life of Leslie? How many people would ever heard of his last composition with a song known as ‘The Red Butterfly’? How many would ever have attended his 10th anniversary commemoration event and how many would have ever seen the butterfly, which might signify the existence of Leslie, by flying around the exhibition venue in Times Square?

“The Way We Were” The 60th Anniversary of Leslie Cheung exhibition is aimed to narrate the behind stories of Leslie. Through sharing of his behind stories, the charisma of Leslie would also be fully delineated. The impressive memories of Leslie remain immortal in the heart of many people and would be regained through story sharing during the exhibition.
