Let ears become eyes, let eyes open up souls, and let souls arouse the sense of touch.
"Five Senses" is a new attempt by HKMoA to invite visitors to explore its exhibits and architectural space through a multi-media,multi-sensory format.
Can we close our eyes and feel a painting by listening and breathing? What about watching a play and an exhibition at the same time? A cappella, a singing bowl and an interactive theatre will awake your senses and enable you to experience the multi-faceted museum from new perspectives – to allow your body to feel art, and to let art move your soul.
The programmes run from November 2020 to the first quarter of 2021 – allowing you to experience a very different HKMoA online.
What if your ears could become eyes?
Floating Landscape with A Cappella
2020.11.19 (Thursday) 5:00pm
Art Group: Cultural Services Unit, The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups
Format: Music video
Bringing together their music and video creation, young artists augment artworks from the HKMoA exhibition "The Breath of Landscape" into a sensuous blend of harmonies and sounds that allow viewers to ‘look at' the exhibition with their ears, and breathe in the sky, flowing water, mountains and breeze.
This programme will be available on the HKMoA Facebook and Instagram pages. We suggest that you use earphones to experience the work to the fullest.
What if souls could touch?

When you feel an artwork, you feel yourself.
Tsang Man-tung, renowned singing bowl artist, is hosting a series of online workshops, which will guide participants to feel artworks with their souls. When your soul opens, even with your eyes closed, you can still ‘touch' the art, and be touched by it. Participants will watch a recording of the poetic body movements of artistic dancers and observe how they interact with the space they are dancing in. Tsang will then play the singing bowls and invite the participants to experience the recording a second time, with their eyes closed and mind open, while enjoying the sonic voyage. Through reconnecting the body and mind, you will get to know yourself a bit more and discover that art is all around you.
Each workshop features a different museum collection. There are four in total.

This interactive theatre allows you to visit the whole museum from the comfort of your home. Not only can you enjoy the museum's architecture and exhibits, you can also enjoy the modern romance theatre, and physical movement and dance, and even instantly interact with the actors. Throughout the process, you can make your own choices and decide how you want your journey to proceed.
