11 SKIES, which will cost HK$20 billion (US$2.55 billion), will be the largest “retailtainment” landmark in the city, according to a press release from its developer, New World Development. 

The hub will host eight world-class entertainment attractions for all ages. 

One of those will be the Hong Kong stop of South Korea’s largest immersive media art exhibition “ARTE MUSEUM”.

It will feature a collection of body-immersive artwork enabled by advanced digital media projection technology that showcases surreal nature-themed art experiences such as scenes of rainforests, tide movements as well as Hong Kong-themed artwork.
