Supporting the understanding and appreciation of contemporary art

 

Established in Hong Kong, this new Foundation brings creative practitioners together and promotes them and their work. Through our projects we aim to develop an appreciation and understanding of contemporary art and how it can enhance our cultural life.

Our focus is working with artists across Asia Pacific and we have started collaborating with a number of organisations and individuals from China, Korea and Australia.

The foundation also supports San W Gallery/Studio a world class metal and jewellery studio providing skills and expertise through workshops and a master class program, along with exhibitions and a retail outlet.

We have a partnership with Guildhouse, a service organisation for artists in Adelaide Australia. Through this partnership we have had an a number of exhibitions and set up an Artist in Residence program bring artists from Australia to China and from China to Australia.

Future plans for the Foundation are an international mentorship program with JamFactory, Australia.
