If you’re looking for a richer audio and visual impact, head over to the chi K11 art space for The Sunata Planet K448, where you’ll receive a wireless headset to fully isolate your senses from the outside world!

Think Like Leonardo da Vinci

Forget Santa, Leonardo da Vinci is coming to town this Christmas!

As well as digital replicas, there’ll also be a series of interactive booths where visitors will have the opportunity to learn more about the individual paintings themselves. While the exhibition is free (meaning you won’t need the Da Vinci code to get in and admire his timeless works of art), some of the activities may require reward points – head here for full details.

Banksy: Genius or Vandal?

Following successful stops in Moscow, Madrid and Lisbon, the highly anticipated “Banksy: Genius or Vandal?” finally makes its way to Hong Kong. As is customary when it comes to the infamous street artist, this exhibition is not authorised by Banksy, who prefers to protect his anonymity and independence from the system instead. As such, the 70 original works, installations, photographs and sculptures on show have been taken from private art collections across the world. We have a feeling this one will sell out pretty quickly, so make sure to get your tickets now!

Time: Until Sunday, 1 March 2020, 11am to 7pm (booking essential)
Where: Portal 6311, 1/F, FTLife Tower, Sheung Yuet Road, Kowloon Bay, Hong Kong
How much: Standard tickets start at $180 (weekdays) and $210 (weekend and public holidays)
