One of the other highlights of Art March is the 51-year-old Hong Kong Arts Festival, which gives a platform to leading local and international artists in all genres of the performing arts, such as Western and Chinese opera, classical music, dance, and theatre. As part of the two-month-long Art@Harbour, hundreds of luminous art installations will light up both sides of Victoria Harbour. This year’s edition of Art Central will return to Central Harbourfront to showcase works by cutting-edge galleries from Hong Kong, Asia, and beyond.
