City Dress Up : Seats • Together  
Presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department
Organised by the Art Promotion Office
 

 

Art Promotion Office has launched the public art project "City Dress Up: Seats.Together" in July 2017. With the assistance of four guest curatorial teams, 20 teams of artists have created 20 sets of public artworks in the form of aesthetically appealing and functional furniture at the Leisure and Cultural Services Department venues across 18 districts. The artworks will be displayed till July 2020.
 
Since its opening last year, the project does not only attract extensive media coverage, but has also won numerous awards and deserved recognition from various expert fields for its creativity and mission.
