Whether it's street photography spots or world-class art galleries, Hong Kong is a city that's bursting with creativity – thanks to the incredible art scene filled with local and international talents. To narrow things down and help you be well on your way to true culture vulture status (and level up your Insta-feed along the way), here are some of the best art exhibitions and displays to visit around town this month.

RECOMMENDED: Discover Hong Kong's coolest hidden art spaces, or pay a visit to the city's top museums.

PHD Group has transformed its gallery space into a "neighbourly estate of queerness" – in reference to the histories of gay villages – for Hong Kong-based artist duo Virtue Village's first major solo exhibition. Running from now until July 2, the exhibition features paintings, sculptures, and installations that investigate the concept of 'village' in our modern society and utilises the idea of fornication as a metaphor for generative and artistic possibilities. Those interested in visiting the exhibition can make a booking via this link.

Who said yoga is only made for us humans? Our fur babies can get in on the action too! From now until July 17, Metroplaza has turned its Piazza into a giant Instagrammable pup-land filled with large installations of adorable doggies showing off their best yoga poses. From a four-metre-tall shiba inu stretching its furry behind to a cute French bulldog doing aerial yoga, there are plenty of photo opts for you and your furry friend.

Metroplaza will also be giving away special pet goodie bags to every pup and their hooman when they upload a picture of them working out together onto Facebook or Instagram with the hashtags #DogaMasterClass and #OneStepOnePaw (remember to make your profile public!) For every photo, Metro plaza will be donating $20 plus 2kg of dog food to local pet charities Paws Hero and House of Joy & Mercy.
