Buried trea­sure

Hong Kong Tatler - - Concierge -

sk any of hong kong’s art folk what ex­cites them most about the city’s fu­ture, and they will point to the open­ing of M+, the art mu­seum in the West Kowloon Cul­tural Dis­trict. It may not fling open its doors un­til 2018, but con­struc­tion is fi­nally un­der way—a feat which many of the city’s movers and shak­ers felt was worth com­mem­o­rat­ing. To mark the start of the build, Lars Nittve, Ron­ald Ar­culli, Vic­tor Lo, Car­rie Lam and other big names gath­ered with pri­mary school stu­dents from around the dis­trict to plant a com­mem­o­ra­tive time cap­sule on the grounds of the mu­seum. It con­tains art­works by stu­dents de­pict­ing their wishes and as­pi­ra­tions for M+, per­sonal mes­sages to a fu­ture Hong Kong gen­er­a­tion from Lam and Nittve, and pho­to­graphs of the M+ con­struc­tion site. The time cap­sule will be un­cov­ered in 100 years.
