Inspired by the vision of Adrian Cheng, Founder of the K11 Group, to build a Silicon Valley of Culture in which to incubate creative talents and propagate a culture of sustainability, Nature Discovery Park is Hong Kong’s first urban biodiversity museum and sustainability-themed education park. The Park offers guided green tours to raise awareness of Hong Kong’s ecological importance and cultural heritage, workshops and an urban farming experience to promote a sustainable lifestyle, events that echo the UN Sustainable Development Goals and a venue for sustainable brands and like-minded individuals to gather.
Founded by renowned primatologist Dr. Jane Goodall, the Jane Goodall Institute is a global nonprofit dedicated to wildlife research, education and conservation. The primary focus of the Jane Goodall Institute Hong Kong office is “Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots”, an education program which empowers young people to care for the environment, the community and animals through action.

K11 MUSEA is committed in fostering cross-cultural and art exchanges, we are proud to present a minimalist performance series by the Hong Kong Contemporary Music Group, inspired by the collection of iconic artworks on display at the K11 Art & Cultural Centre. The series pays tribute to 3 iconic and pioneering minimalist composers – Terry Riley, Philip Glass and Michael Nyman.
The hugely influential and significant minimalist movement in music, with its ingenious use of patterns, removed the trivial barriers forged between ‘high’ and ‘low’ art in music; resonating to K11’s vision to advocate the interconnectedness of creativity, culture and innovation for global millennial appreciation in art.
The centrepiece of the entire programme, Terry Riley’s In C, written back in 1964, was the founding work of the minimalist movement in music. The most striking aspect of this work is its flexibility – above the always-present pulsating ‘groove’ that propels the music forward, each musician has a high degree of freedom when performing and interacting with neighbouring musicians – and yet each rendition is unmistakably recognisable as In C. Riley’s In C, with no fixed instrumentation, is in essence about community, and its ecology of continually evolving landscape is perhaps comparable to the space at the K11 Art & Cultural Centre.
The programme is curated and directed by Dr. Fung Lam, previously the Director of Artistic Planning with the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra who also holds the distinction of being the first Hong Kong composer ever commissioned by the BBC.
Join us in this stimulating and minimalist music programme.

With the Thinking Boy sculpture (205cm), the artist captures that instant of introspection which proceeds to the creative process itself, and that he, himself, considers to be a magical moment. The immediacy of reality and living it with intensity, is the stage where Calleja's characters interact.
With Little Maurizio (1.6m), Calleja pays tribute to Maurizio Cattelan, an artist he admires. Cattelan’s works are loaded with ingenuity and a keen sense of humour, inspiring Javier to recreate his particular playful, affective and innocent universe, but ironic and surrealist at the same time. In his final effort to humanise the world around him from a certain social criticism, sometimes implicit and other times veiled, that we can see in the texts which accompany his work.
