Everyone’s personality is unique, and so are the characteristics of different artworks.

We have handpicked nearly 100 gems from the Hong Kong Museum of Art’s four core collections, and categorised them into four personality traits to present a multi-faceted world of art. Before viewing the exhibition, we invite you to take a personality test to find out which characters and traits best describe you. Then enter the four specially curated exhibition zones, where you can look for your “match” among the artworks on display.

Meanwhile, artist Joey Leung has custom-made corresponding hand-painted characters for the selected artworks, and exclusive scents are crafted for different exhibition zones for you to experience a special and personalised aesthetic journey.
