Hong Kong is set to get its newest free harbourfront space in Wan Chai next month, along with the SAR debut of an international light installation. The Wan Chai Harbourfront Event Space will open in mid-March and will feature Italian artist Angelo Bonello’s renowned ‘Run Beyond’ light art show for a month.

The Wan Chai Harboufront Event Space will be close to the Wan Chai Pier.

Since 2015, the ‘Run Beyond’ series has appeared at major landmarks in cities across the world, from Amsterdam, Toronto, and Washington D.C., to Singapore, Liverpool, and London. The 65-metre-long installation takes the form of recurring imagery of running and leaping large light silhouettes. This will be the centrepiece of the new 13,000 square metre space in Wan Chai, and will be visible from the Kowloon side of Victoria Harbour.

Hong Kong’s ‘illuminate! Run Beyond’ will run until mid-April.
