Amid new surges in Covid-19 spikes worldwide, there are new openings and closures of art institutions in various regions. Here’s a roundup of updates, and a look at several announcements made in recent weeks.
Seoul and Hong Kong Museums Close due to Covid-19
On December 2, Hong Kong art institutions were shuttered once again following government mandated restrictions responding to a fourth wave of Covid-19 in the city, in effect until at least December 15. With daily numbers for new cases still high, the closure will likely be extended. Affected spaces include, among others, Tai Kwun Center for Heritage and Arts (including Tai Kwun Contemporary), the Centre for Heritage, Arts and Textile (CHAT), the Hong Kong Museum of Art, and the nonprofit Para Site. Just days later on December 8, museums in Seoul were similarly closed due to a spike in Covid-19 cases. Spaces such as the National Museum of Korea, the Seoul Museum of Art, and the Seoul branches of the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea (MMCA) will remain closed until at least December 18.
