Tai Kwun finally opened today in Hong Kong with the inaugural exhibition “100 Faces of Tai Kwun” presenting the stories of 100 people who are related to the Central Police Station compound (CPS compound) in different ways. The long awaited art cluster comprises the former Central Police Station, Central Magistracy and Victoria Prison and proposes a programme focusing on three pillars: heritage, contemporary art and performing arts.
The next exhibition in line will be presented by Spring Workshop and curated by Christina Li: “Dismantling the Scaffold”, opening June 9, will bring together works from local and international artists and collectives, a constellation of artworks which engage with the social and civil structures we collectively inhabit.
Tai Kwun is located at 10 Hollywood Road, Central, Hong Kong; opening hours 11am – 11pm
