Following the exit of curator, Tobias Berger, last month, Hong Kong's new visual culture museum M+ has now announced that it is putting back its opening date until the latter part of  2019, two years later than originally planned, the South China Morning Post reports. Museum head Lars Nittve has said that it is the most difficult project that he has ever worked on but that at the end of it all, Hong Kong will have a cultural institution to rival the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris.
