There is something irrepressibly compelling about the lewd animated videos of Wong Ping. Is it their flat surfaces rendered in popping colours? Or their dark narratives that resonate with the deepest recesses of the human psyche? They have been included in an impressive repertoire of group exhibitions in recent years, including One Hand Clapping at...

M+ has been steadily building their collection since the late 2000s, unlike many of the museums built in the period 1990-2010 as part of a global museum building boom and that opened without a single artwork to their name. Barcelona’s Museu d’Art Contemporani, London’s The Power Station of Art and Beijing’s Red Brick Contemporary Art Museum all opened without a permanent collection.
In March 2014, ARARIO GALLERY Seoul has moved to So-
The mission of the museum, as stated in 2005, is to "focus on 20th and 21st century visual culture, broadly defined, from a Hong Kong perspective and with a global vision. With an open, flexible and forward-looking attitude, M+ aims to inspire, delight, educate and engage the public, to explore diversity and foster creativity."
The inaugural director, Lars Nittve has explained that the name is simply drawn from the concept of "museum and more". The team currently, without a building, has sought to move beyond the typical model of the art museum, for example by serving as a showcase of diverse subjects like architecture, film and all manner of moving images including animation and video games.
The holdings of the museum comprise a variety of types of media, including "sketches, electronic media, installation, objects, painting, photography, architectural models, printed matter, sculpture and time-based intangibles".
On 12 June 2012 Uli Sigg, a Swiss collector of reportedly the largest and most comprehensive collection of contemporary Chinese art in the world, announced that he would donate the majority of his holdings to M+. This founding acquisition includes 1,463 donated works by 325 artists, "conservatively valued" at $1.3 billion Hong Kong dollars. In addition to this there was a purchase from Sigg of a further 47 works for $177 million. From opening in 2019 until 2021, the M+ Sigg collection will be presented "in isolation", and afterward displayed as part of the overall holdings.
Construction of the building began in 2014. The design was won by Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron and Hong Kong-based TFP Farrells. The 60,000 square-meter museum, scheduled for opening in 2019, is located in the West Kowloon Cultural District. This is a new area, currently under development on Hong Kong’s waterfront, that will include museums, theaters, exhibition venues and a 14-hectare public park. M+ is presently administered by the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority, a statutory agency of the Hong Kong government. A separate subsidiary company will be set up in the future with the aim of ensuring its "independence and efficiency".
