CHAT is launching a series of engaging content and workshops onto its digital platforms with #MuseumFromHome, allowing the public to experience and explore remarkable works of art and historic exhibits from CHAT’s exhibitions.

 

Holding firm to CHAT’s mission to weave creative experiences for all, CHAT will publish its current exhibition content and co-learning programmes via its website and digital channels. Highlighting its two current exhibitions, a seasonal exhibition on contemporary art, Unconstrained Textiles: Stitching Methods, Crossing Ideas and its permanent display on Hong Kong’s textile industrial heritage, Welcome to the Spinning Factory!, #MuseumFromHome programmes will include online tours, interactive remote-access workshops, artist talks and more.

 

Specially recorded at CHAT’s galleries, online tours led by curators and CHAT’s Learning and Community Team invite all to explore and examine in detail the artworks and archival objects and displays at CHAT. Interactive online workshops led by CHAT’s Textile Programmes Team will guide participants in creating their own textile creations and perfecting their embroidery and sewing skills. CHAT with Artist, a series of artist talks, will invite artists such as Bi Rongrong, Kawita Vatanajyankur and Samson Young to share their creative practices and insights into their exhibited works in exciting new formats. Artists Room, an online repository collecting the interviews and videos of current and past featured artists, is accessible to all on CHAT’s website. CHAT will also collaborate with international textile museums in Europe and the USA to launch an online project in the coming months. More exciting news and content will be updated periodically.

 

CHAT is temporarily closed until further notice. During CHAT’s closure, artworks displayed at The Hall of The Mills and The Park on the rooftop is open to all daily from 10:00am-10:00pm. CHAT Shop will reopen from 23 April from Thursdays to Sundays, 1:00-7:00pm. Please refer to CHAT’s website or Facebook for the latest updates.
