‘Take Another View On Art’ @ Landmark, Hong Kong

Date:  March 2015

In conjunction with Art Basel Hong Kong, the atrium in Landmark is transformed into an extraordinary art space where an enormous dome is suspended in mid-air.  The exhibition called ‘Take Another View on Art’ brings exceptional museum-quality art to the city, featuring original artworks by Claude Monet, Marc Chagall, Zao Wou-ki and Zeng Fanzhi amongst others, and valued collectively at over a whooping HK$140 million!

These masterpieces are hung under an iridescent aerial installation created by architect William Lim.  The audience is invited to view 9 aerially installed masterpieces under the dome through telescopes.

For those inclined, featured art works are:

- Alex Prager, 3:14pm, Pacific Ocean (2012) from Lehmann Maupin
- Claude Monet, Entrée de Giverny en hiver, soleil couchant (1885) from Christie’s
