Crazy for Art


Hong Kong Tatler - - Faces -

It was a hec­tic and eye-open­ing time for those who made the most of the crowded cal­en­dar of Art Week. With live per­for­mances, mee­tand-greets with big names from around the world, VIP din­ners and unique in­stal­la­tions at Hong Kong land­marks, Art Week was full of sur­prises. As well as the plethora of works on dis­play at the Art Basel in Hong Kong vernissage, there were plenty of other op­tions for ap­pre­ci­at­ing the fruits of cre­ativ­ity. Soho 189, a new art and life­style hub cul­ti­vated by Cissy Pao-watari, had stim­u­lat­ing ex­hi­bi­tions at Ga­lerie Huit and Pearl Lam Gal­leries. Cigar afi­ciona­dos flocked to a party at the Grand Hy­att Pool House hosted by Davidoff Cigars. As well as freeflow­ing cham­pagne and tasty bites, guests were treated to a scin­til­lat­ing per­for­mance by bur­lesque dancer Dita Von Teese. An­other hit was the In­side China ex­hi­bi­tion by Adrian Cheng’s K11 Art Foun­da­tion, which drew young Chi­nese artists from around the world for a spe­cial talk about con­tem­po­rary Chi­nese art. Other events in­cluded Mr Porter’s party at The Pawn to kick off Art Basel, and the open­ing of Take An­other View of Art in Land­mark, which fea­tured mu­seum-qual­ity works val­ued at more than HK$140 mil­lion.
