Sheduled for opening in 2019, M+, an integral part of the West Kowloon Cultural District, positions itself as an inter-disciplinary museum of visual culture. The museum mainly collects visual artworks, designs, architecture and moving images from Hong Kong, Mainland China, Asia and all over the world from the 20th and the 21st centuries, with a view to documenting the history of visual culture wherein the current situation can come under perusal in the hope of contributing to the future. Although M+ has yet to be completed, the team behind has been building its collections proactively while broadening the visitor base, so as to wait in the wings for the coming challenge.
As collections are an important component of M+, we have interviewed Mr Doryun CHONG, Deputy Director and Chief Curator of M+, and his team in order to understand how they select collections in line with the position “established in Hong Kong while engaging itself globally.” Currently, more than 1 500 pieces of M+’s collections are Chinese contemporary artworks donated by Uli Sigg, a Swiss collector, who will also explain in the programme in person the advantages Hong Kong has by being an international connection hub.
With regard to broadening the visitor base, M+’s team employs a proactive strategy. It makes use of “M+ Rover”, a mobile truck, to organise outreach activities in public spaces at schools and in various communities with artists, thereby promoting visual art and culture.

West Kowloon Cultural District in the Making 2016 - M+ on the March

M+, as an integral part of the West Kowloon Cultural District project, is positioned as a brand-new museum of visual culture. The mission of M+ is to tell the stories from a Hong Kong perspective and with a global vision. Although M+’s premise will not come into use until 2019, the team behind the museum has been busy building its collections before M+’s opening, in which more than 1500 pieces are Chinese contemporary artworks donated by Uli Sigg, a Swiss collector. This year, the team has selected some of the collections and placed them on exhibition in a chronological manner. What is the Hong Kong perspective of this exhibition? The collection is the backbone of the museum, what are the team’s strategies and selection criteria?

Besides the building of M+’s collections, what are the team’s tactics in broadening the visitor base of the museum? Cultural atmosphere in society cannot be built in a day. In order to narrow the gap between art and the public, not only osmotic impacts from daily life are needed, but also long-term and clear cultural policies.
