Dorsett Hospitality International is proud to be the Exclusive Hotel Partner for Affordable Art Fair Hong Kong, London Battersea Autumn and Singapore 2019. As part of their ongoing commitment to support local talent through Dorsett Discoveries which promotes and supports Hong Kong talent on a global stage. Hong Kong grown local artist duo Stickyline and Hong Kong Arts Centre alum Meko Cheng will create a vibrant, Hong Kong-inspired programming at each art fair. Following the fair, a part of the art installation will then be showcased at Dorsett Wanchai, Dorsett Shepherds Bush and Dorsett Singapore for the guests to enjoy.

Dorsett Hospitality International’s headquarters and 10 of its properties, across Dorsett Hotels, Silka and d.Collection, all call Hong Kong home — much like their signature Dorsett bird. Flying far away from home every year, the Dorsett bird travels to see the world, staying in lively cities, meeting native birds and other travellers like her along the way. Using the passion for Hong Kong art and travel as their inspiration, Stickyline will be creating a large-scale art installation. For the last 8 years, Stickyline have continued to push the boundaries with their innovative three-dimensional paper engineering and designs — creating everything from giant sculptures, stage-design, window displays and more for the likes of Lane Crawford, Audemars Piguet and Mercedes-Benz.

As part of the lead-up to the fair, Dorsett Hospitality International hosted an exclusive art panel which discussed “How can art thrive in Hong Kong?” moderated by Vivienne Chow, journalist, cultural critic and founder of Cultural Journalism Campus at Dorsett Wanchai. Speakers included Stephanie Kelly, Affordable Art Fair Hong Kong’s Director, Winnie Chiu JP, President & Executive Director of Dorsett Hospitality International and Chairman of the Hong Kong Arts School, Connie Lam, Executive Director of Hong Kong Arts Centre and art duo Stickyline.

Dorsett Hospitality International will also be running a social media competition at the Dorsett Discoveries booth. 1 Fair-goer who snaps the most creative photo of the installation with #dorsetthospitality #dorsettdiscoveries #DHIxAAF19 on Instagram (@DorsettHospitality) or Facebook (DorsettHospitalityInternational) and sign up to the Dorsett – Your Rewards membership programme will win a trip for two inclusive of flights, accommodation and an exclusive Stay Vibrant itinerary for 2 at Dorsett Shanghai.
