Victoria Harbour will be transformed into an outdoor art exhibition space thanks to a series of interactive installations, as part of Art@Harbour 2024. The large-scale outdoor art project, which will be held from March 25-June 2, will take over Tamar Park, the Central and Western District Promenade, and Tsim Sha Tsui.

The highlight of the two-month-long event will be the teamLab: Continuous exhibition, which will feature hundreds of luminous ovoids that will be placed at Tamar Park and the Central and Western District Promenade. The colours of these ovoids will change, based on how visitors interact with them, as will the sounds emitted from them. The light of dozens of trees in the park will spread, changing colour and resonating sound tones in response to the ovoids.

This year’s Science in Art exhibition at the Central and Western District Promenade will feature two interactive art installations.

There will also be a Science in Art exhibition that will highlight two interactive art installations called ‘Harbour Cup’ and ‘Schrödinger’s Bed’ created by Hong Kong artist Dylan Kwok and local art group LAAB Architects, at the Central and Western District Promenade (Central Section). Both installations will showcase the nature and properties of light.

Across the harbour in Tsim Sha Tsui, the waterfront promenade will be transformed by outdoor art installations and digital art façades at the Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower, K11 MUSEA promenade, the Sino LuminArt Façade at Tsim Sha Tsui Centre, and Empire Centre.

The 2022 edition of Art@Harbour had several eye-catching installations, such as the Water Capsule Submarine.

The first edition of Art@Harbour was held in 2022, when several installations were set up across the promenades at Tamar Park, the Central and Western District Promenade, Tsim Sha Tsui, and Hung Hom for six months. The Hong Kong Jockey Club presented its version of the Science in Art exhibition, and there were sculptures and digital displays at many spots on the Kowloon side of the harbour.
