Hong Kong-based architect Rocco Yim has designed Vision Tunnels for Be Inspired in Central

Launching yesterday in the Landmark Atrium and running until April 4, Vision Tunnels features a public exhibition of 14 artworks by renowned artists. The pieces are installed in a three-channel suspended tunnel, creating visual pathways for visitors and those utilising the heavily populated pedestrian thoroughfare.

Yim was inspired by the ideas of fluidity and movement when designing the installation, and also helped to curate the pieces housed within. At the launch of the installation, the architect said, “I am grateful for the opportunity to deliver this large-scale art installation to the public. The great mobility in Landmark Atrium inspired me to design Vision Tunnels, which capture the movement of this dynamic space and create an innovative viewer experience to foster art appreciation by providing public access to rare artworks."

The installation features works by some of the art world's biggest names including Yayoi Kusama

The three tunnels house works from across time and space: Heritage of the Masters, Visionaries of Modern Art and Contemporary. Pieces by Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Salvador Dali and Yayoi Kusama can all be found inside the installation.

To nurture the next generation of artistic minds, Landmark invites junior audiences to join Inspiring Young Minds Art Workshops. Children will be led through the exhibition for a fun on-site art class and will leave with their painting inspired by the masterpieces on display. Concurrently, a specialist art talk on Old Master Painting: Rubens and the Baroque Movement will be led by Nicholas Hall, Christie's Specialist in Old Masters, exploring the cornerstone works in the history of art.
