MTR and HKTB Join Hands to Bring West Kowloon Culture into MTR Stations

June 24, 2022 - PRLog -- Starting from today (24 June 2022) to 14 July, MTR Hong Kong Station will present the "HKTB x MTR ARTour of West Kowloon" exhibition where passengers can appreciate the cultural and artistic features of the new and old areas of the West Kowloon neighborhood. This exhibition is an extension of the community art exhibition "Journey to West Kowloon" co-organised by the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) and the Department of Cultural and Creative Arts of the Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK). The collaboration between the MTR Corporation and the HKTB demonstrates that both organisations have been actively promoting arts and culture, integrating arts appreciation into everyday life and journeys, and supporting the development of young arts talents in Hong Kong.

Passengers can enjoy a series of artworks created by students of EdUHK at Hong Kong Station's Central Subway (paid area next to Exit/Entrance C). The art pieces aim to promote the rich cultural features and vibrant artwork of the West Kowloon community, as well as encourage public to rediscover the community from a new perspective.

The highlighted artwork in the exhibition is "Man + People = ?" which is a newly created large-scale wall painting incorporating elements of the MTR and the West Kowloon neighbourhood . Its creative concept comes from the idea that every journey is an element in building up people's relationship. In the painting, an MTR train travels between the iconic and traditional landmarks of the neighborhood, including the Yau Ma Tei Fruit Market and Temple Street archway to show that MTR connects to people's daily lives and creates many possibilities for the community.

Apart from the exhibition at Hong Kong Station, large-scale posters depicting West Kowloon images are also on display in the Yau Ma Tei Station concourse and Jordan Station platform till 7 July. Visitors can also scan a QR code on the exhibits to learn more about the artistic landmarks along the West Kowloon neighbourhood.
