They include the naked eye 3D and installations with arts and technology incorporated at the new extension of the Oi! art space; the Big Eight - Dinosaur Revelation which showcases precious dinosaur fossil skeletons; the Dunhuang: Enchanting Tales for Millennium displaying Dunhuang grottoes; and the Road to the Baroque - Masterpieces from the Capodimonte Museum presenting top-notch Italian paintings from the Baroque period.


Audiences can also explore the world of Chinese landscape paintings through modern technology in the Mastering Masterpieces: the Essentials of Chinese Landscape Paintings exhibition and learn about feminine characteristics and daily lives in ancient China through the Women & Femininity in Ancient China: Treasures from the Nanjing Museum show.


Meanwhile, in collaboration with the K11 Group, Kerry Group and Sino Group, the department will present the Art@Harbour project, under which art installations will be on display in the Tamar Park area as well as on the promenades of Tsim Sha Tsui and Hung Hom.
