Summer Exhibitions at Tai Kwun: Murakami vs Murakami and Tai Kwun 101

Japanese contemporary artist Takashi Murakami's endearing smiling flowers are no strangers to art aficionados or those with a passing interest in art. This summer, his works will occupy all the art galleries of Tai Kwun for his first major showcase in the city; a wide-ranging exhibition that includes his well-known flowers and lesser-known and much darker post-apocalyptic-themed works.

Also on view at Tai Kwun this summer is a thematic retrospective of the building itself. A curated experience by the Heritage Department and Perspective's 40 Under 40 alumni One Bite Design Studio, it explores the origins of the complex, including the objects and artefacts that form the narrative of the former Central Police Station. Expect to see a Servis Recorder used to record night-time patrols around Victoria Prison, and a reinterpreted sculpture of a tiger's head that had been mounted on the entrance for 60 years after the big cat was shot in the New Territories in 1915.
