The Oriental Ceramic Society of Hong Kong is delighted to announce a guided viewing of the M+ Museum of Visual Culture, a cornerstone of the West Kowloon Cultural District. Led by OCS President, Tina Pang, the viewing will include a tour of the architectural features of the Herzog and de Meuron-designed M+ Building, and highlights of the exhibition Hong Kong: Here and Beyond. Told through individual and collective histories, the exhibition captures the city’s transformation from the 1960s to the present through the works of groundbreaking artists, designer, architects and filmmakers.
This private viewing takes place when the museum is closed to the public and is exclusively for OCS members. Members are invited to remain at the museum following the tour to visit the museum’s other exhibitions. These include the M+ Sigg Collection: From Revolution to Globalisation, a comprehensive introduction to the contemporary art of China from the 1970s to today; Things, Spaces and Interactions introducing histories of design and architecture from the 1950s to today from an Asian perspective, and Individuals, Networks and Expressions that present developments in global visual art.

Due to social distancing restrictions, the viewing is limited to 20 people. This event is offered to members for free, but a donation of $150 per person is suggested to cover our administrative costs. Please note that visitors are required to wear a face mask, and use the LeaveHomeSafe application at the temperature screening station prior to entry.
