Join us on a viewing of these beautiful masterpieces, with special opening remarks delivered by HKMoA’s Amy Chan, Assistant Curator of International Programmes.  Participants will view the exhibits at their own leisure afterwards.

The exhibition showcases over 100 diversified art pieces and archive material by significant surrealist artists such as Giorgio de Chirico, Salvador Dalí, René Magritte, Joan Miró, and Max Ernst.

Furthermore the HKMoA has invited young local artists to contribute original works for the exhibition. New media artist Keith Lam delves into the interface between art and technology, and the nuanced relationships between reality and simulation in his robotic installation work “Artificial Reality”. Artist Hazel Wong created an illustration booklet and the animation “Dreaming in Hong Kong” with a storyline as well as Hong Kong scenery blended with works featured in the exhibition.

The exhibition is jointly presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department and the French May Arts Festival, and is jointly organised by the HKMoA and the Centre Pompidou, Paris, with major support from the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust.

Confirmed attendees are required by the HKMoA to use the “LeaveHomeSafe” mobile app or provide their personal contact details onsite.
