Contacts & Details
Tai Kwun Contemporary brings to life heritage and art programmes in an authentically restored site which comprises 3 monuments – the former Central Police Station, the Central Magistracy and the Victoria Prison – forming the Central Police Station compound.
Tai Kwun Contemporary showcases a mix of programmes and events focused on heritage, contemporary art and performing arts. Located in the southwestern corner of Tai Kwun, a new art space designed by award-winning, international architectural practice Herzog & de Meuron, will dedicate to presenting contemporary art exhibitions and programmes as platforms for the continually expanding cultural discourse in Hong Kong. This will be operated by Tai Kwun Contemporary, the contemporary art team of Tai Kwun on a not-for-profit basis, as an important part of the restored Central Police Station compound.
