About the Event:

China’s ‘museum boom’ has created an array of new museums and cultural spaces all over the region, but as the physical spaces manifest at rapid rates, we are left to consider fundamental questions about how a museum program, mission, and content should relate to its building. For this one-day conference, Museum 2050 and ARTinD invite artists, architects, academics and arts professionals to dialogue on the relation between Art and Architecture and its impact. What are the architectural requirements of a cultural institution? To what extent are cultural buildings public spaces? What function do museums and galleries have beyond exhibiting art? 


Organised by : ARTinD & Museum 2050

Hosted by: Hong Kong University Faculty of Architecture
