Virtual Tours: A Whole New Way of Viewing Art in Hong Kong without leaving your sofa
With the world currently experiencing travel disruptions due to the Covid-19, enjoying some of Hong Kong's top spots first-hand is just not possible at this moment. But that shouldn't stop you from checking out some of Hong Kong's impressive art collections, exhibits and experiences virtually! It's the next best thing to actually visiting in person! Here's a list of top Hong Kong virtual tours and experiences that allow you to enjoy art without leaving your sofa:
- Tour the Hong Kong Museum of Art in the Virtually@HKMoA section where you can browse multi-media programs, check out the audio guide and view pamphlets of their exhibitions. Access a massive library of their collections and past shows through Google Arts & Culture.
- We’re all excited for the West Kowloon Cultural District to fully open, but in the meantime check out M+ Collections Beta. It has over 5,000 objects on virtual display, offering photography, visual art, design and architecture, moving images and more to pique your artistic interest.
- Enjoy an interactive 360-degree experience with Sotheby’s Hong Kong to virtually tour the exhibition and four beautifully curated galleries with modern, contemporary and Southeast Asian art.
- Asia Society Hong Kong and The Hong Kong Art Gallery Association have teamed up to bring online viewers a six-month Sculpture Exhibition (until 27 September), which features art from international and local galleries and a full-day Art Talk programme live-streamed on Facebook.
