Lost and Found: Guardians of the Chater Collection

Overview

The Chater collection is one of the most legendary collections of the Museum. The artworks were displaced during the Second World War. Thanks to the selfless act of the Hong Kong citizens, some of the works are rescued and some of which will be on display in the exhibition "Lost and Found". The narrative of the exhibition is told through stories of how the artworks were kept hidden, displaced and eventually recovered during the war, restaging a period in history that is filled with human spirit.
