Presented by Hong Kong Maritime Museum and Parkview Arts Action, ‘On Sharks and Humanity’ is a powerful exhibition and the first of its kind, which demonstrates the relationship between art and society, and emphasises the social responsibility of museums and artists. The contemporary art exhibition, sponsored by Hong Kong Parkview and in partnership with the international non-profit organization WildAid, is open to the public from 29 June until the end of September 2017 at the Hong Kong Maritime Museum. 
 
The exhibition includes 36 contemporary artworks by internationally recognised artists as well as emerging artists and brings together the worlds of visual art and humanitarian action. The show at the Hong Kong Maritime Museum is the fifth edition of a multidisciplinary exhibition co-curated by internationally lauded curator Huang Du, that has been shown in Monaco, Moscow, Beijing and Singapore to great acclaim. Three acclaimed local Hong Kong talents, Professor Ho Siu-Kee, Peggy Chan, and William Tong, are exhibited for the first time in the Hong Kong edition of ‘On Sharks and Humanity’. The exhibition aims to raise public awareness of shark conservation in Hong Kong and the Greater Pearl River Delta region.
