Dorsett Discoveries, Promotes Hong Kong Art as Affordable

Art Fair’s Exclusive Hotel Partner 2019

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
