SHOWCASING three digital exhibits and more than 270 artefacts, the Art Museum of The Chinese University Hong Kong brings a new wave of excitement to Google Arts & Culture. The three exhibits are themed: Celebrating the Year of the Ox, Artistic Confluence in Guangdong from Ming to Mid-Qing China – Ming to Early Qing, and Time Travel: Hong Kong, each guiding you along as you rediscover the past.
Google Arts & Culture has made it easy for us all to access the inside of over 2,000 museums, art galleries and institutions across the world from the comfort of our homes, helping both preserve and educate admirers.
Titled Celebrating the Year of the Ox, the exhibition features ox-related artefacts and artwork inspired by this animal, such as The Buffalo Ride by Lo Koon-chiu and Two Water Buffaloes by Qifeng Gao.
The second exhibition, Artistic Confluence in Guangdong from Ming to Mid-Qing China – Ming to Early Qing takes you on a journey in nature through the display of art by Guangdong cultural masters.
Lastly, Time Travel: Hong Kong looks at rediscovering how Hong Kong looked from 1940s to the 1970s through pieces such as Wu Meihe’s Sung Wong Toi and a collection of coloured photographs from the 50s.
