René Magritte: The Revealing Image – Photos and Films will open to the public Friday 19 January at ArtisTree in Taikoo Place, running until Monday 19 February 2018.

Presented by Swire Properties’ ArtisTree in partnership with the Magritte Foundation Belgium and Ludion, the exhibition immerses visitors in the world of René Magritte with 132 original photographs and eight films by the influential 20th century surrealist artist. The original photographs and films were created between 1914 and 1967 and have never been exhibited in Asia or Europe before.

The collection is now exhibited at ArtisTree, the first venue in Asia, before the it continues on a world tour. Together with a seminal catalogue by Chief Curator Xavier Canonne and a series of guided tours, the exhibition is shedding a new understanding on Magritte’s creative process and thinking. Admission and guided tours are free of charge.

Speaking about the exhibition Chief Curator Xavier Canonne said, “This is a very important exhibition as it offers audiences around the world an intimate look at one of the most popular and influential surrealist artists of the 20th century. I’m delighted that the collection will be hosted at ArtisTree in Hong Kong, before continuing its Asia and world tour.”

Don Taylor, Director, Office at Swire Properties said, “We are delighted to be working with the Magritte Foundation Belgium to bring the work of renowned Belgian surrealist artist René Magritte to Hong Kong and Asian audiences, through ArtisTree at Taikoo Place. This exhibition not only expands ArtisTree’s repertoire of world-class programmes, it’s part of our efforts to create vibrant and sustainable communities by integrating arts and culture into everyday life.”
