What is the South Island Cultural District (SICD)?

Founded in 2013, SICD is currently formed by 24 galleries and art spaces in the South Island areas of Wong Chuk Hang and Tin Wan. With the exception of Central, no other district in Hong Kong can claim to have so many high quality galleries located in the same area. And no other district has so many galleries hosting exhibitions in large industrial spaces (ranging from 3000 to 5000sf). SICD is a major evolution and improvement to the Hong Kong art scene and the South Island district has became Hong Kong’s new destination for contemporary art.

Current SICD members are:

ADC Artspace
Chloe Ho Studio
Pékin Fine Arts
Greer Howland Smith Art Studio
Empty Gallery
Alisan Fine Arts
Caroline Chiu Studio
Whitestone Gallery
Fordham & Plastridge Studio
Longmen Art Projects

Objectives of the SICD

Currently led by contemporary art galleries, the present objective of SICD is to bring awareness about the district to art lovers. We organise joint openings, specific events and liaise with art fairs and other festivals to promote the area. SICD has also produced a written guide to the district, which is available at key distribution points throughout Hong Kong. The group has a website and sends monthly e-newsletters with updated information about spaces, exhibitions, special events and show openings.

Soon SICD will include more cultural outlets in the area such as photo studios, dance academies, yoga centers, private kitchens, music studios, etc. Crossover and interdisciplinary events as well as cultural festivals will be organized. SICD is at the forefront of the promotion of this new and dynamic cultural neighborhood.
