Light Breakfast followed by M+ curator led tour
Start the day with a light breakfast at CVIEW iconic restaurant, then discover M+ new exhibition, "Shanshui: Echoes and Signals", through the eyes and guidance of the M+’s curator.
"Shanshui: Echoes and Signals" is a thematic exhibition of works drawn from the M+ Collections that explores the complex connections between landscape and humanity in our post-industrial and increasingly virtual world. Shanshui (‘mountain and water’) is a cultural legacy integral to Chinese philosophical thinking and poetic imagination and motivates a millennium-old tradition of ink painting across East Asia. Although commonly translated as ‘landscape’, shanshui can take us far beyond observable reality. It manifests invisible resonances—between stillness and motion, vision and imagination, the fleeting immediacy of experience and the persistence of history and memory.
After this exclusive curator led-tour, guests will be transferred back to Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre with shuttle bus.
