Hong Kong Museum of Art to present exhibitions showing world of contrasts from November 30
     After major expansion and renovation, the Hong Kong Museum of Art (HKMoA) will be ready for public visits on November 30.

     A total of 11 exhibitions will be held. They include a series of collection exhibitions representing the cultural legacy in the museum's holdings, namely "Ordinary to Extraordinary: Stories of the Museum", "From Dung Basket to Dining Cart: 100th Anniversary of the Birth of Wu Guanzhong", "A Pleasure Shared: Selected Works from the Chih Lo Lou Collection", "The Wisdom of Emptiness: Selected Works from the Xubaizhai Collection", "Lost and Found: Guardians of the Chater Collection" and "The Best of Both Worlds: Acquisition and Donation of Chinese Antiquities".

     Another series of exhibitions and displays on Hong Kong art, namely "Classics Remix: The Hong Kong Viewpoint", "Hong Kong Experience‧Hong Kong Experiment", "The Breath of Landscape" and "Rediscovering Landscape", will display the lineage of local art. An international blockbuster exhibition, "A Sense of Place: from Turner to Hockney" will also be ready for public appreciation.

     The HKMoA has been closed since August 2015 for a renovation project to increase exhibition space and upgrade its facilities. After expansion, the total exhibition area has been increased by about 40 per cent from about 7,000 square metres to around 10,000 sq m.

     Established in 1962, the HKMoA was first housed in the City Hall High Block and moved to its present purpose-built premises in Tsim Sha Tsui in 1991. The museum's mission is to preserve the cultural heritage of China and promote Hong Kong art.

     The HKMoA is located at 10 Salisbury Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon.
