GALLERI MAGAZINE FOUR TO LAUNCH IN STYLE
AT dada AT THE LUXE MANOR
Wednesday December 10th 2008 at 8pm
Hong Kong’s finest independent arts magazine GALLERI is set for another high profile event as it prepares for a multi-faceted pre-Christmas bash at the brand new dada bar + lounge at The Luxe Manor boutique hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui.
Combining the first viewing of GalleriFOUR Magazine, the launch of the official Galleri website plus a unique group exhibition of visual arts, the event looks to eclipse some of the past Galleri events that have included 600 people at KEE Club as well a private party at the Chanel Mobile Art Container.
In association with luxury vodka Belvedere and artists’ network alivenotdead.com, the G4 event will feature a group exhibition entitled CLASSY DIRTY that will also include recent work for Belvedere by acclaimed photographer Terry Richardson. Drawing from a host of alivenotdead.com visual artists, the exhibition will bring together photographers, graphic artists, illustrators and urban artists each interpreting the Belvedere ‘Classy Dirty’ theme in their own style. So far the line-up includes; Jonathan Jay Lee, Simon Birch, Jay FC, Timon Wehrli, Emily Eldridge and Blow Up Studios. Alongside this will be several pieces by Terry Richardson featuring Jade Jagger and Vincent Gallo.
“We’re looking forward to working with the Galleri team. What they’re doing and the way they’re handling it sit perfectly with the ‘Luxury Reborn’ global creative platform of Belvedere” said Elvina Tsun from Moet Hennessy Diageo Hong Kong Limited.
The event will also see the exclusive preview launch of GalleriFOUR Magazine – another 148 page book packed with the cream of Hong Kong’s most sought after and talked about creative talents. This issue includes exclusive contributions from Kalun Leung, Cheung Kinwai, A Yip, Wilson Shieh, Kelebra, Cyrusnoname and Andrew Lee.
And finally, the event is also the official launch of the new fully interactive galleri.hk artist website created by the team at alivenotdead.com.
“We’re happy to be celebrating the launch of our fourth issue and we’re really grateful for the support of Belvedere Vodka and alivenotdead.com. It can be difficult to keep something like this going without the support of forward thinking companies who understand the real value of Hong Kong’s local creative community” said Galleri co-founder Jay FC.
The event will be held at the recently completed, lavish and luxurious dada bar + lounge in the award-winning boutique hotel The Luxe Manor in Tsim Sha Tsui. The Galleri party will be one of the bar’s first events since its official launch.
As usual the event is expected to draw an upscale and diverse crowd of artists, celebrities and supporters of Hong Kong’s ever-increasing creative community.
