Hong Kong’s hot new pop-up art space

Planning a trip to Hong Kong? You might want to check yourself into the chic J Plus Hotel by Yoo located in the vibrant neighborhood of Causeway Bay. Earlier this year, the exterior walls of the hotel saw a major overhaul—it went from boring solid colors to edgy street art, making it the first hotel in Hong Kong to feature a mural on its outer walls. Now, the eclectic hotel is transforming a portion of its ground floor into a hot new exhibition space: Art@JPlushk.

Starting Jan 2015 and set to run for the entire year, the space will be taken over by a series of pop-up art exhibitions each lasting three months. Partnering with Hong Kong’s leading contemporary art gallery, Cat Street Gallery, the first exhibition will showcase works from three renowned international artists.

The artists include Berlin based Zhivago Duncan who’s known for his playful multimedia artworks, Australian Jason Sims who creates mesmerizing light installations and British husband-and-wife duo Rob and Nick Carter whose artwork often incorporates cutting edge new media.

Rooms start from $295 a night, head here for more info.
