Hong Kong artist Kingsley Ng’s Twenty-Five Minutes Older will create an altered reality and allow tram passengers to experience Hong Kong in a new way – in reverse. Capturing images of passing street life, the scenes displayed inside the tram will be accompanied by spoken extracts from Liu Yichang’s popular stream-of-consciousness novella 'Tête-bêche.' The project, which is free to the public, will be presented during Art Basel's Hong Kong show.

Twenty-Five Minutes Older is commissioned by Art Basel and supported by MGM Resorts Art & Culture. Special thanks to The Pawn, Hong Kong Tramways and Osage Art Foundation. FAQ available here.

Free to the public, limited seatings available on a first come first serve basis.
