What's On - Closed for a Major Renovation
Bear in Mind

2016.12.3 – 2017.6.30

Participating Artists: William Lim, Mok Yat-san
Education Programmes Partner: soundpocket
Exhibition Venue: Art Square at Salisbury Garden
10 Salisbury Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon

Presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department

Organised by the Hong Kong Museum of Art
 

We will present two artworks at Art Square that help us revisit memories. One installation, Post a Memory to the Future, created by William Lim, functions as a post office pavilion with hanging "remembrance". He specially designed some postcards inspired by our collective heritage and memories to encourage you to share your thoughts and hopes with us. Another artwork, entitled Contemplation of Lovingkindness, by Mok Yat-san, presents an unusual scene next to a lawn. Placing a polar bear against a painting scroll with a literati landscape, the work encourages viewers to cherish nature before it vanishes and becomes only a memory.

As part of this exhibition, our education programmes partner, soundpocket, will organise a series of activities with sound art and moving images to share our memories of the Museum and our city. Please follow our updates on the Museum website, listen to the artists' thoughts and stay in touch!

Special event: "The Memory of Proximity" interdisciplinary art party

Artist Enoch Cheng joins hands with performers Steve Hui, Chan Kwun Yee, Zip Ho Kin Man, Leung Tin Chak, and others in developing an interdisciplinary project. They will launch a screening of a work-in-progress movie shot before the closure of the Hong Kong Museum of Art in 2015 and compliment it with live-music, DJ gig and a dance performance. The artist hopes to inspire the audience to see, to feel, to participate, to dance and to dream on this platform for memory and imagination.
