K11 Musea is celebrating its first anniversary this month with an exciting array of art and cultural happenings reflecting the city’s vibrant harbourfront culture. These include a striking nine-metre-tall Van Gogh’s Ear sculpture by Elmgreen & Dragset; a limited-time showcase of legendary pop artist Keith Haring’s iconic artworks presented by Phillips Auction House in the new K11 Art & Cultural Centre; and Spanish artist Javier Calleja’s Thinking Boy and Little Maurizio sculptures and “blind box” mini-figurines at a special pop-up in Muse Edition.
The programme of multi-cultural experiences also includes screenings of Always I Distrust, Cheng Ran’s latest short film starring Carina Lau and produced by Adrian Cheng in the Gold Ball; The Glorious Heritage, a homage to the rich traditions of Chinese Baibaoqian and Luodian craftsmanship at the Experience Chamber to provide a platform to showcase rare and fast disappearing Chinese traditional craftsmanship; as well as live ensemble performances featuring works by three iconic and pioneering minimalist composers Terry Riley, Philip Glass, and Michael Nyman throughout four weekends in October. Throughout the anniversary month, shoppers can also enjoy an incredible range of fabulous K11 Exclusives rewards.
