Dolls, robots, action figures, model rockets, and more. You'll find them all at the International Hobby and Toy Museum, an institution devoted entirely to studying, preserving, and restoring toys.
Situated among the industrial buildings of Ma Tou Kok, this century-old slaughterhouse is now a birthplace of modern art. While the historic red-brick building is a site in itself, inside the Cattle Depot Artist Village are some 20 different art organizations, including studios and galleries. My favorite artist there is Frog King, an interesting performance artist whose colorful art pieces are a mixture of Western and Chinese painting styles and calligraphies. He is an old man with a young, energetic, and kind heart. You'll love him!
Established in 2004, Osage Gallery showcases international and Asian contemporary art. The impressive warehouse-style space in Kwun Tong District is the organization's flagship gallery, and focuses both on exploring the artistic relationships between the different regions of Asia, and between Asia and other parts of the world. (The gallery also has spaces in Shanghai, Beijing, and Singapore.) Its works are diverse and always of a high quality, having organized solo exhibitions by some of the most significant artists in Asia, such as Sun Yuan(China), Wilson Shieh (Hong Kong), Nipan Oranniwesna (Thailand) and Charwei Tsai (Taiwan).
Located in Tsim Sha Tsui, the Hong Kong Museum of Art is the city's main art museum and features more than 15,000 art objects - from calligraphies and paintings of historical significance, to works by local artists and antique Chinese treasures. The Flagstaff House Museum of Tea Ware - a branch of the Museum of Art - is also not to be missed, offering a great insight into the unique tea drinking culture in China and Hong Kong. The exhibitions are diverse, but well-planned, and always interesting!
A non-profit organization operating under a self-financing model, the Hong Kong Arts Centre (HKAC) is widely recognized as a high-quality local arts and cultures incubator. The main building holds theaters, a cinema, galleries, classrooms, studios, restaurants, and office space, and hosts a wide range of programs - from performing arts and film, to public art projects, conferences, and art festivals.
Located at Cornwall House, TaiKoo Place, ArtisTree is a 20,000-sq-ft multi-purpose venue that hosts all manner of events, from massive exhibitions to small kids' activities. The goal of the space is to bring world-class visual and performing art exhibitions to Hong Kong, and it does just that with flair!
Housed in what was once the Old Dairy Farm Depot - a building shared with the Foreign Correspondent's Club - the Fringe Club is today home to Hong Kong's annual Fringe Festival. By providing its facilities for exhibitions and performances rent-free, the club does its part to support local emerging artists and freedom of expression. Its spaces range from a gallery to a jazz and cabaret space, to an underground area "designed for creative experimentation." Situated in the space that was once the ice vault for dairy products, the Fringe Vault is also a cool cafe that hosts readings and pop-up craft stores.
