The leading public art promoting organization in Hong Kong _

Public Art Hong Kong (PAHK) is a non-profit organization funded by the Y.K.Pao Foundation with an aim to nurture and promote public art in Hong Kong. It was incorporated in 2005 with the Hong Kong Arts Centre as its executing organization. PAHK wishes to create an interactive relationship among the artwork, site and audience and intends to reflect public interests while featuring Hong Kong as a vibrant cultural city.



Public Art Hong Kong strives to enhance the quality of life of the people in Hong Kong by bringing excellent contemporary art that offers impactful experiences to the people and the cityscape.

PAHK - Infuse the city with art


  1. Art should be accessible to everyone rather than being confined within the walls of museums, galleries and private collections;
  2. To breathe life to public space and bring people of the community together, creating communal spirit and identity;
  3. To reflect the value of the society and its conscience of cultural development;
  4. To give opportunities to Hong Kong artists to think and create in terms of large space which otherwise is not feasible within their own small and confined studio;
  5. To showcase to the world that Hong Kong is not only thriving economically but also throbbing with artistic pursuits.
