During Art Basel Hong Kong, the under construction Tai Kwun Contemporary opened its doors to a limited number of guests. Located in the heart of Central, Tai Kwun Contemporary presented “Rehearsal” a show displaying works by national and international artists.
Dedicated to presenting contemporary art exhibitions and programmes as platforms, the non-profit art centre directed by Timothy Calnin, is an important part of the restored Central Police Station compound.
A broad multi-disciplinary residency programme will also be established, with five studios available and open to both international and Hong Kong-based art and heritage practitioners. The Hong Kong new art place’s official opening is scheduled for next summer.
