After more than a decade of plans and construction work – including a setback when a wall collapsed in 2016 – Hollywood Road’s Tai Kwun Centre for Heritage and Arts has finally opened its doors. As Hong Kong’s newest landmark and world-class art space, the former Central Police compound aims to be the city’s go-to destination for contemporary and performing arts. Set in the heart of Central, visitors to the 13,600sq m site can expect exceptional contemporary art exhibitions, gigs out on the grass, regular Sunday film screenings as well as a whole host of other cultural activities. Timothy Calnin, the director of Tai Kwun gives us the lowdown on the space and what highlights to expect in the opening months.
