M+ Rover

M+ Rover is a travelling creative studio and exhibition space that tours local schools and community spaces. First organised by M+ in 2016, this free programme provides participants and cultural practitioners with a platform to engage in creative dialogue, where they inspire and learn from one another.

M+ Rover 2020-21

The M+ Rover 2020–21 edition is designed for primary school students and teachers as well as the general public. This year, M+ invited artist Wong Tin Yan to develop a set of artist-led activities and a series of online educational resources—in response to the health-protection measures for schools—based on his newly commissioned work, Yes but Why?.

To celebrate our grand opening, M+ Rover will have special opening hours on:

  • Tuesday, 16 Nov 2021: 11:00–18:00
  • Wednesday, 17 Nov 2021: 11:00–18:00
  • Thursday, 18 Nov 2021: 11:00–18:00

M+ Rover is open for regular drop-in visits:

  • Every Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and public holidays: 11:00–18:00

For M+ Rover's full opening hours, please see the schedule below.

About the Artist

Wong Tin Yan is known for his sculptural work made out of discarded wooden pallets. He has been an art educator for almost twenty years and considers his writing for print and online publications and his participation in television as integral parts of his practice. He hosts the RTHK television programme Artspiration and is the founder of the self-funded art space, Form Society. Bringing a unique perspective to his practice, Wong looks beyond the use of conventional materials and perception of art to find inspiration to create.

Wong graduated from the Department of Fine Arts of the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2000. His work is held in the collection at the Hong Kong Museum of Art, and in public and private collections in Hong Kong and overseas. He has participated in various exhibitions, public art projects, and educational programmes, including Charming Tastes and Fragrance: Literature and Visual Arts (House of Hong Kong Literature, 2019), Harbour Arts Sculpture Park (Hong Kong Art Centre, 2018), the Arts Ambassadors-in-School Scheme (Hong Kong Arts Development Council, 2016), The Very Fun Park Contemporary Art Exhibition (Fubonart, Taipei, 2015), and Kwai Tsing Amusement Park and Xinhua Animal Hunt: Sculptures by Wong Tin Yan (Art Promotion Office, 2006). He was recognised at the 40 Under 40 Awards by Perspective magazine in 2010 and received an Entry Prize for commercial interior design at the GDC Awards in 2011.
