The popular Japanese cartoon character Butt Detective (yes, he has a literal butt for his face) has landed in Hong Kong and he’s here to find the missing 'golden pearl milk tea'! From June 25 to September 26, the Butt Detective exhibition invites all to investigate through seven curated spaces and rack their brains around challenging missions and fun games. From the Butt Detective Agency to the Wankoro Police Station and the Hoo Hoo Museum, scour high and low for hidden clues, jot down every detail in your very own detective notebook, and help the Butt Detective gather all the evidence to catch the culprit – don’t forget to use your special ‘magnifying glass’ too!  At the end of your journey, stop by the pop-up store and pick up some exclusive merch like toys and key rings, storybooks, stickers and stationery, accessories, along with special cookies and cold-brew teas. Having previously attracted almost 100,000 visitors when showcasing in Taipei, The Butt Detective Exhibition is one not to be missed.

A solo exhibition by London-based artist Michael John Hunter, The More Things Change features a series of works that challenge our perception of the real and the imaginary. Combining the artist's skills in photography with his passion for sculpture making, the exhibition invites the audience to contemplate how the truth is perceived through the use of fake macro photography, where enlarged sculptures of vintage toys are placed in 'real-life' locations to enhance and demonstrate the scale of each sculpture.

Or, if you're feeling adventurous, take a trip to Tin Shui Wai Park where a five-metre-tall phoenix will light up alongside different animal lanterns, or visit Sha Tin Park to see a glowing display of sea creatures such as clownfish, dolphins, turtles, and jellyfish. Last but definitely not least, visitors can make their way to TST to discover an awe-striking light installation – titled The Other Side of the Moon – created by local artist Dylan Kwok at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre Piazza.  Before you visit any of the light displays, be sure to read through the guidelines and safety measures here.
