Art exhibition: Vik Muniz at Ben Brown Fine Arts

Quick - today is the last day of another great exhibition at the Ben Brown Fine Arts Gallery in the Pedder Building. It is the second exhibition that I've visited there (after Tseng Kwong Chi at the end of 2014) and again, I am really fascinated by it. The exhibition called 'Album' by Vik Muniz… Continue reading Art exhibition: Vik Muniz at Ben Brown Fine Arts

Times Square Living Room Museum: The Legend of Lion Dance exhibition

The Living Room Museum at the Times Square is hosting an exhibition about the Legend of Lion Dance. Lion dances are performed to bring luck and to get rid of the devil. This tradition can be traced back to a story that took place long ago: During the rule of the legendary "Yellow Emperor", a monster… Continue reading Times Square Living Room Museum: The Legend of Lion Dance exhibition

Fireboat Alexander Grantham

While we were in Tai Koo (and ate at Toast Box...) we decided to visit the Fireboat Alexander Grantham. This might not be your typical sight to visit in Hong Kong, but it is actually I really nice exhibit that is (1) free of charge (2) easy to access from an MTR station and (3)… Continue reading Fireboat Alexander Grantham

Photography exhibition: Ho Fan at AO VERTICAL

The other exhibition we visited in Chai Wan was Ho Fan's 'A Hong Kong Memoir', which runs until January 31 at the AO VERTICAL gallery.

Art exhibition: Soulmate at YY9 Gallery

I am a bit annoyed with myself that I discovered this exhibition late - that's because it is hosted at the YY9 Gallery in Chai Wan, which is in the Far East of Hong Kong Island, and it is open only on Wed-Sat. So I had to find some time to go there - but… Continue reading Art exhibition: Soulmate at YY9 Gallery

Tseng Kwong Chi at Ben Brown Art Gallery

I think I've found my favourite exhibition in Hong Kong this year - it's at the Ben Brown Fine Arts Gallery in the Pedder Building. When I walked in, I had no idea what to expect and I was blown away. I had no idea who Tseng Kwong Chi and at a first glance, I… Continue reading Tseng Kwong Chi at Ben Brown Art Gallery

Elephant Parade in Cityplaza

The title is slightly misleading - I didn't actually see that many elephants at the Cityplaza shopping mall last Thursday (I saw more at Pacific Place the other day). That's because the exhibition ended already on September 9. Instead, I spent more time in the shop, looking over all the different designs from the different… Continue reading Elephant Parade in Cityplaza

Elephant Parade in Pacific Place

After pandas, there are now elephants in town... not as many as there were during the 1,600 papier-mache pandas' visit, but still plenty! I visited the herd at Pacific Place last weekend - they will stay there, as well as in Cityplaza and Citygate Outlets until September 9, so you still have a few days… Continue reading Elephant Parade in Pacific Place
