Launched on the week of ART HK, ART EAST ISLAND is Hong Kong’s latest artist hub and space for creative doers!
From May 26th Art East Island (AEI) in Chai Wan’s industrial area of Hong Kong we will present special art week four exclusive contemporary Asian art exhibitions, video installations, studio visit, special projects + talks, parties and curated guided tours.
More than 6 units from this Chai Wan warehouse (located 15 minutes East of Central) are today dedicated to host artist’s studios, exhibitions and special events.
AEI aims at bringing together pro-active individuals and thrilling projects in search of independent exhibition spaces to address themselves to and challenge new audiences of art enthusiasts in the city.
For the first time promoted as a destination AEI has the ambition to act as an “off” platform to enable artists and curators to present alternative projects the ones presented by the art fair, the private galleries and the national museums.
As Hong Kong is rapidly developing its art scene spontaneous movement of artists and art doers are shaping up to find their voice, AEI is a direct response to this socio-cultural phenomenon and reflects this new creative generation.
