From London to Hong Kong, contemporary art space and collaborative platform Schoeni Projects brings disConnect HK, an expanded adaptation of disConnect LDN, where a set of site-specific works from 10 artists across seven countries were presented inside a stunning 1850s Victorian townhouse in South West London.

Taking over a historic 1950s tenement building in the heart of Causeway Bay, disConnect HK presents an awe-inspiring array of artworks from the London exhibition, and continues the disConnect 'journey' with the addition of new works from four Hong Kong artists which will include a live painting performance art, a video installation, a mixed-media installation, and a display of sculptures.

Open from now until November 29 (12nn to 8pm), visitors may head to Urban Sky at Hysan Place to view highlight pieces of the exhibition, or engage in the full experience and wander from floor to floor at 16 Pak Sha Road, Causeway Bay, to discover collections of works that explore themes of, belongingness, isolation, connection, and reliance on technology during the pandemic.

There will also be a series of free programmes and online events available for all to participate, including a live painting session by local artist Wong Ting Fung, artist interviews, a 3D virtual tour of the disConnect LDN show, and more. To adhere to current social distancing guidelines, visitors must make an appointment to visit the tenement building at least one week in advance. Hourly slots will be available from noon to 8pm but there's a limited capacity so be sure to book your spot now! For more details of the show, head to for the latest updates.
