Pixar 30 Years of Animation: Hong Kong Celebration of Friendship and Family
18 November, 2017 - 5 March, 2018HK$10 – HK$20
This new exhibition at the Hong Kong Heritage Museum celebrates Pixar’s 30 year history of innovative use of animation technology along with creating heart-warming stories and memorable characters through traditional artistic media. The Pixar 30 Years of Animation: Hong Kong Celebration of Friendship and Family exhibition showcases a selection of artwork created on traditional and digital media, including hand-drawn sketches, paintings, storyboards and sculptures, created by the artists at Pixar Animation Studios as they contribute to the development process for each film. Every shape, colour and line in the artwork is designed to convey the desires, heartache, sadness, joy and love of the characters and the story they are part of. Together with the videos of artists’ interviews, which give visitors a behind-the-scenes glimpse of how they come up with story ideas, the exhibition offers a rare and unique opportunity to experience the craftsmanship and creative process behind Pixar’s films through over 300 exhibits. From Toy Story, the studio’s first ever fully computer animated feature film, to its most recent film Coco, the theme of friendship and family is always at the heart of Pixar movies – two of the closest relationships in our life, which stand with us and keep us going no matter what ups and downs we encounter.
The museum is open from 10–6pm on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and 10am–7pm on Saturday, Sunday and public holidays. It is closed on Tuesdays and the first two days of the Chinese New Year. The ticket office will be closed 30 minutes before museum closes.
