I have watched Hong Kong’s vast new contemporary art museum, M+, come into being from when the West Kowloon Cultural District was first proposed and quite a few of us went from London arts institutions in Easter 2008 to discuss it. Directors have come and gone, as described in the article below, but it is impressive that a new museum on such a vast and ambitious scale should now be opening, consolidating Hong Kong’s position, as was planned, as a major centre in the international art world. I wasn’t over-enamoured of the Herzog and de Meuron building when I saw it from outside two and a half years ago, but let’s see. It’s certainly big and occupies a very prominent position.
