Committed to giving home a deeper meaning other than merely a habitat and to enrich the quality and individuality of life, 3812 gallery and colourliving have joined hands to form “Art in Residence”, an initiative to bring art into life by offering professional art consultancy service with the focus of harmoniously infusing contemporary Chinese aesthetics into modern Western design. With 3812 gallery’s expertise in Chinese contemporary ink art and the state-of-the-art Italian designer furniture from B&B Italia, this crossover concept is the crossroad between East and West in the dimension of artistic contemporary living.
The unprecedented partnership involves a series of unique ‘art home exhibitions’ at B&B Italia flagship store, curated by 3812 gallery’s founder and artistic director Calvin Hui. Through the engagement between Chinese contemporary art and Italian designer furniture, the curatorial concept of each exhibition aims to take viewers beyond the decorative aspect of art and home styling. It also initiates a noteworthy dialogue between East and West on art and culture as well as the attitude towards life.
