Asia’s First Global Museum of Contemporary Visual Culture Opens in Hong Kong

Situated in the West Kowloon Cultural District, M+, Asia’s first global museum of contemporary visual culture, opened to the public on 12 November 2021. More than just a museum, M+ is dedicated to collecting, exhibiting, and interpreting visual art, design and architecture, moving images, and Hong Kong visual culture of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

Designed by a global team of the world-renowned architecture practice Herzog & de Meuron in partnership with TFP Farrells and Arup, the M+ building is one of the largest museums of modern and contemporary visual culture in the world; occupying a total floor area of 65,000 sq/m with 33 galleries covering a 17,000-square-metre exhibition space. Located at the southernmost edge of Kowloon overlooking Victoria Harbour, it is among Hong Kong’s most iconic landmarks, both monumental in its architectural form and radically open in its position in the urban landscape.

M+ has four permanent collections that are rooted in Asia but defined, developed, and examined from a global perspective. Collectively, they form the backbone of its institution and will continue to evolve with future generations. Through talks, thematic tours, workshops, performances, and screenings, M+ welcomes visitors of different ages, backgrounds, and abilities to interact and exchange ideas with artists, makers, and the community
