City Gallery Museum

Water lilies in Sha Tin? Sounds unlikely - well, not really. They are in Sha Tin, albeit only for a short amount of time, until July 11, 2016. The current temporary exhibition Claude Monet: The Spirit of Place is a highlight of this year's exhibitions in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong Museum of Art is now closed

The Hong Kong Museum of Art used to be one of my 'hangout' places, at least on grey and rainy days. It was always easy to get to, just a hop away on the star ferry.

My highlights from Art Basel in Hong Kong 2015

I was contemplating whether or not to write this post - there are so many Art Basel in Hong Kong articles out there, but then I thought everyone has different views and opinions. My take is that it is a great opportunity to see so many great masters of the 20th and 21st century in… Continue reading My highlights from Art Basel in Hong Kong 2015
