My highlights from Art Central 2016

This week it is all about Art. Both Art Central and Art Basel are in town and there are lots of Art related events happening in the city. I decided to start 'my' art week with a visit to Art Central, which is happening for the second time round. Art Central is a little bit… Continue reading My highlights from Art Central 2016

Review: Good Music for Babies

Like every other baby, Lina loves music and we sing and dance every day. So when I saw posters announcing a special concert just for babies, 'Good Music for Babies' by the Hong Kong Sinfonietta, I immediately went ahead and bought tickets for Friday January 29 at 11am. The tickets for the weekend concert had… Continue reading Review: Good Music for Babies

Exhibition: Wearable blessings at the HK Heritage Museum in Sha Tin

I am always surprised that there are some really good current exhibitions that are often overlooked. One of them is the 'Wearable Blessings' exhibition at the Hong Kong Heritage Museum. The museum is in Sha Tin, so it is a little journey away from the Island but it is so worth it! I have been… Continue reading Exhibition: Wearable blessings at the HK Heritage Museum in Sha Tin

It is an open space with lots of different exhibitions throughout the year - with the majority being related to architecture.

Art exhibition: Balthus at the Gagosian Gallery

I always thought that the galleries in the Pedder Building would focus on contemporary, modern art - and so I was surprised to see so many classic paintings and drawings at the Gagosian Gallery recently. They looked like old classics, and then I realised that they were works by the famous painter Balthus. Balthus used… Continue reading Art exhibition: Balthus at the Gagosian Gallery
