Spanning three months, Art@Harbour 2024 will inhabit both harbourfront promenades with vibrant installations and digital art. Kicking off the series is an interactive exhibition by international art collective TeamLab. As the group’s second site-specific installation project in Hong Kong, “Continuous” will see Tamar Park and the Central section of the Central and Western District Promenade populated with hundreds of sound- and colour-changing egg-shaped installations that visitors can interact with.

The “Science in Art” exhibition will be held at the same location. In collaboration with local art group LAAB Architects and artist Dylan Kwok, the exhibition will feature two interactive installations. LAAB’s “Harbour Cup” reimagines skyscrapers of the Hong Kong skyline into the players of a foosball table, where visitors can manoeuvre the rods themselves. Kwok’s “Schrödinger’s Bed” is a provocative installation that features a transparent humanoid sitting on a metal structure. Both artworks use the properties of light and blend with nature at the harbourfront for maximum effect on the viewers.

On the Kowloon side, Art@Harbour’s outdoor installations and digital art displays will be located at the Clock Tower in Tsim Sha Tsui, along the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade by K11 Musea, and on the Sino LuminArt Façade at Tsim Sha Tsui Centre and Empire Centre. Presented by arts charity First Initiative Foundation, K11 Group, and Sino Group, the details of the displays illuminating that side of the harbour in upcoming months are yet to be revealed.

Arts@Harbour 2024’s diverse programme mixes science and technology with artistic expression. Stay tuned here for upcoming projects popping up around town!
