Surroundings & Influences Art Exhibition and Afternoon Tea – 4 March to 12 April, 2016
In partnership with Artshare.com, Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong will host a landmark exhibition bringing together some of the most important artists from China and Hong Kong across generations at Clipper Lounge. The featured works are all generously loaned from private collectors, enabling rare access to pieces otherwise unavailable for public appreciation. Exhibiting artists include Gao Weigang, Hou Yong, Lee Kit, Li Shurui, MadeIn Company, Tsang Kin-wah, Wang Guangle, Wang Keping, Wang Yuyang, Xie Molin, Xu Qu, Xu Zhen by MadeIn Company, Yang Xinguang, and Zhao Zhao.
Focusing on the theme of influences, Surroundings & Influences explores the artists’ relations with their surroundings, their muses, and ultimately their inspirations. Looking at the immediate environment, addressing social issues, and questioning the role of an artist in a globalized world, each of the works presented in this exhibition prompts the audience to reflect on how artists in contemporary China think, work, and express themselves. Whether it is the passage of time, the makeover of city landscapes, urbanism, or broader transformations, the artists in this exhibition mix imaginary and realism in a powerful and thought provoking way. Exhibition made possible with the support of G4Si fine art handling services and the insurance of Willis Hong Kong Limited.
