The Metropolis Museum opens in Wong Chuk Hang

The city’s arts circuit has sadly taken a beating this year, with cancellations of major events like Art Basel and Hong Kong Arts Festival. If you’re in need of something to look forward to in its stead, check out Metropolis Museum, which opened its doors just last month with a 33-piece exhibition on Impressionist master Claude Monet. With a mission to “democratise art” to Hong Kong’s public, all of the works on display are actually authorised recreations, using either scanned prints, hand-painted recreations, or 3D-printed replicas of some of Monet’s most famous masterpieces. Metropolis also offers art workshops for children, teens and adults, teaching everything from fine motor skills and creative expression, to more advanced artistry like colour theory and painting techniques. Studies have shown that just looking at art can enhance your brain function and overall wellbeing, so if you’re in need of somewhere to regain some calm, this spacious Wong Chuk Hang gallery is good for what ails you.

17/F, Genesis, 33-35 Wong Chuk Hang Rd., Wong Chuk Hang, 9161-2105. Exhibition runs until September 5, for more information on workshops and business hours, visit metropolismuseum.com.
