This November, British Council Hong Kong presents Event Horizon by British artist Antony Gormley, the largest and most prolific public art installation in Hong Kong. The work was originally conceived in the year when for the first time over half of the planet's human population were recorded as living in cities. Thirty one sculptures looking out into space will be mounted at both street level and building tops across Hong Kong’s Central and Western districts, questioning how the built world relates to an inherited earth.
Event Horizon is also an education and outreach project targeted at teachers, students and the public. A series of guided tours, public lectures, seminars and hands-on workshops will be held relating to the topic of "public art in the city" including a talk by Antony Gormley on 16 November 2015 at the University of Hong Kong.
