Asia Society Hong Kong Center presents Hidden Forests, a summer arts and culture project offering many events, programs and experiences for all ages. Focusing on local ecology, Hidden Forests celebrates Hong Kong’s trees and biodiversity and promotes the importance of caring for the environment. Inspired as a response to Hong Kong’s devastating loss of trees caused by the tropical cyclone Typhoon Mangkhut in September 2018, Hidden Forests includes an art exhibition, a music series, community workshops and nature tours that explore the significance of trees to our local environment, culture and history. The cross-disciplinary program brings together local artistic talent and expert ecologists to strengthen public awareness about forestry and biodiversity in Hong Kong.

In response to Hong Kong’s devastating loss of trees caused by the tropical cyclone Typhoon Mangkhut in September 2018, this exhibition explores the role and significance of trees within our environment, culture and history. Inspired by the expression, “cannot see the forest for the trees,” which describes when one fails to grasp the big picture by focusing only on a certain aspect, the exhibition addresses the urgency to preserve the well-being and future of our planet in dire geological decline.
