Art exhibitions in Hong Kong are aplenty, especially in recent years. In the past decade, Hong Kong has been gaining recognition as Asia’s art capital. In 2007, Hong Kong became the third largest art auction market in the world just after New York and London, and international galleries had a growing interest in Hong Kong as a player in the art community.  Whether it be vibrant street art or high-profile art fairs such as Art Basel Hong Kong, the city is bursting with incredible art from both local and international talents. To narrow it down and help you discover some state-of-the-art installations, we’ve listed some of the best art exhibitions to check out this month.

In our modern society, it is hard to imagine living a day without the convenience of digital technology. The idea of going offline seems nearly impossible for many of us, given that technology has successfully integrated itself into all aspects of our lives. In collaboration with the K-11 Art Mall, Hong Kong art collective Brainrental presents “Digital Fitness: An Experiential Gallery" as a means to explore how we can live healthier digital lives.

Drawing inspiration from the common mundane interactions that occur between people and their digital devices, Digital Fitness is an interactive experience store disguised in a fitness center that explores and magnifies these absurdities. With innovative training equipment, playful illustrations as well as the guidance of “digital fitness trainer" Jimmy, visitors can have a full workout and train their fingers for some more swiping, pinching and scrolling action.

Through this artistic journey, visitors are invited to explore the treasures of the gardens.

Bling Dynasty by Ernest Chang – until April 4

Hong Kong based artist Ernest Chang presents his new series of mixed medium art works at Hong Kong’s The Stallery that combine the visual references of pop culture favorites like “South Park" and “Rick and Morty” with recognizable emblems from high fashion houses. Pop art meets the traditional style of Tang and Han Dynasty paintings in these works – not something you’ve likely seen before. From silkscreens on plexiglass to traditional handicrafts, embroidery and calligraphy, Bling Dynasty is an East-meets-West exhibit that’s both quirky and unpredictable.

Address: 82A Stone Nullah Lane, Wanchai
