Artistic Endeavours at M+

International art and design stand with contemporary gems by local artists and star-chitects, all for your private viewing pleasure

Centrally situated within West Kowloon Cultural District, M+ opened to fanfare in 2021 after much anticipation. And it has not disappointed. The building’s sleek and minimal architecture comes courtesy of 2001 Pritzker Prize laureates Herzog & de Meuron. The Swiss duo conceived of a wafer thin tower oriented towards Victoria Harbour stacked above a podium, both clad in dark green terracotta tiles to resemble bamboo. At night, the tower morphs into a giant TV screen featuring digital art to anchor the district with an ever-changing light show. Inside, concrete dominates the sweeping monochromatic austerity of the generous lobby—an intentional blank canvas for outstanding contemporary collections. The main entry greets visitors with oversized pendant lamps that reference the city’s wet market stalls. Materials at M+ all speak for the dichotomy that is Hong Kong: traditions seamlessly blended with modernity.

The carefully curated exhibitions at M+ have been helmed since 2016 by Sri Lanka-born Australian Suhanya Raffel, Museum Director and Chevalier in the Order des Arts et des Lettres. With her guidance, the museum’s direction of showcasing outstanding Asian artists and creatives continue to push boundaries. Popular recent exhibitions include the pop art prowess of Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama in 2023; the enigmatic style of late Chinese fashionista Song Huai-Kuei AKA Madame Song in 2023-24; and the life and works of the late Chinese American architect I. M. Pei in 2024.

For an even more memorable experience at M+, an array of social venues includes the M+ Lounge designed by local architect William Lim. Situated on Level 11, its stunning panorama of Victoria Harbour is complemented by the private collection of its architect—an avid collector of Hong Kong art. Unique spaces such as the Grand Stair are the perfect place for VIP film screenings, talks or customised events. Keen to learn more about Hong Kong’s skyscrapers? An immersive tour of the museum’s collection of local works—including the original hand drawing by former P&T partner James Kinoshita of Jardine House—can be organised exclusively for your group. Interested in films that dive into the Middle East’s many architectural gems? A private screening of shorts and docs can take place in M+ Cinema. With its lofty perch above green lawns, the outdoors and its fresh sea breezes permeates through every unforgettable experience at M+.
