Hong Kong visitors are always enthralled with the variety, quality and diversity of art on offer all over the city. Renowned as a world-class Arts Hub, Hong Kong entices international art enthusiasts with the greatest range of arts and arts-related activities such as this year’s editions of Art Central and Art Basel held during the Hong Kong Arts Month in March. Do not worry if you can’t attend these highly acclaimed events, here are some hot picks you can still enjoy until April.
Different areas and districts present art in all forms, shapes and sizes, in addition to the galleries and art establishments that welcome visitors all year-round. Klook’s SoHo Gallery Walk gives participants a peak into an interesting adventure of local and international artists’ works housed in art galleries and exhibits that you can visit and re-visit at your pace. Otherwise, start your own self-guided art walk around Hollywood Road to locate the works of Contemporary Street artists who express themselves using cans of spray paint as their primary tool and empty walls as their canvas! These colourful street arts are the perfect spots for selfies you can post for your friends to envy.
Subway passengers will love the art in the MTR-ArtTube initiative, which brings art to the masses. Enjoy your commute as you view exquisite pieces crafted by the artists of the Jockey Club Creative Arts Centre. This free exhibition at the Central Station Entrance/Exit J will be on until the end of April.
Another great exhibition with free admission is the M+ Sigg Collection, which exhibits four decades of Chinese contemporary art. Featuring eighty works by fifty artists, this show will be on until April 5 at the ArtisTree multi-purpose venue. The Hong Kong Arts Centre, meanwhile, will be showing its 4th Annual Collectors’ Contemporary Collaboration, displaying outstanding Japanese collections. Certainly worth catching is the 2016 Hong Kong International a capella Festival, with local and overseas vocalists, until the end of April at various venues.
A deep appreciation of the arts is just one of the many reasons why Hong Kong never fails to charm first-time and repeat visitors. The cultural scene is thriving and dynamic, making the city a broad and wonderful platform for the expression of art in all its forms.
