16 of the South Island Cultural District (SICD) galleries and artist studios open their doors as part of Art Basel Hong Kong and Art Central VIP Programmes. Yet this exceptional event is also open to the general public and the admission is free. Following highly successful South Island Art Days over the past 5 years, the SICD is expecting around 2000 local and international art lovers, collectors and curators to attend the event held in Hong Kong’s new destination for contemporary art.
Art Day Program
SICD promises an exciting and varied programme giving visitors the opportunity to see 16 exceptional exhibitions, interact with local and international artists, attend unique performances, join guided tours as well as enjoy free food and drink from its south side partners.
Outdoor Installations and Performances
Beside the indoor contemporary art exhibitions and performances, SICD runs an outdoor installation programme. While walking from one gallery to another, visitors will be able to experience installations by Kacey Wong and David Boyce scattered along the streets of Wong Chuk Hang. During a four hour non-stop performance, Yeung Siu Fong will also stun art lovers joining the event.
The South Island Art Day is best accessible by MTR (South Island line, exit A at Wong Chuk Hang), car, taxi or public buses (70, 72, 90, 595, 37B, 41)
