HKMoA Marks Return With Five New Exhibits

As the COVID-19 pandemic situation begins to ease, the Hong Kong Museum of Art (HKMoA) marked its reopening to the public with a wide range of new exhibits, as per a government press release on May 12.

The five exhibits are "In-Between," "Mastering Masterpieces: The Essentials of Chinese Landscape Paintings," "Wu Guanzhong: Sketching Vitality," "Beyond the Frames: From Perceiving Frames of Context to Experiencing Art in Itself," and "Portrait Play." One more exhibition, "Shopping in Canton: China Trade Art in the 18th and 19th Centuries," will be unveiled on May 20.

The "In-Between" exhibit, for one, spotlights the lesser-known works of popular artists like Wu Guanzhong, Irene Chou, Luis Chan, Hon Chi-fun, Tong King-sum. Choi Kim-hung, a local designer, figures as the lead artist in the exhibit.

There are also other ongoing exhibits at the HKMoA, such as "Touching: A Journey Through Chinese Landscapes from the Xubaizhai Collection (Phase 2)" and "Redefining Reality," an outdoor exhibit, to name a few.

Catch the exhibits by visiting the HKMoA at 10 Salisbury Road in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon. Visitors must scan the "LeaveHomeSafe" venue QR code with their phones before entering the museum premises.
