“Mobile M+” is the eighth in a series of pre-opening “nomadic” exhibitions curated by M+, the new museum for visual culture in Hong Kong. Being M+’s first dedicated Moving Images exhibition, the exhibition marked the beginning of the museum’s venture to explore different possibilities of engaging the public to showcase it’s growing new media collections from contemporary artists from Hong Kong, China, Asia and beyond in advance of the museum opening scheduled for completion in 2019.
Responding to the core exhibits materials being displayed through display monitors and in the form of various digital projections, the exhibition design framework adopted unique and flexible approach which were developed with ongoing discussion with the curator. The final spatial arrangement was conceived as combination of flexible walled spaces defining fluid threshold of different artists with provision of ample spaces for projections as well as circulation space integrated with enclosed media spaces at the key locations for more private engagement with some of the selected art works. The final learning and the education centre space with consistent material application complement the overall atmosphere of the exhibition experience.
