Hotel G Collaborates With RCGNTN For The First Installation of RCGNIZE

(Singapore, 6 February 2018) – Taking inspiration from its eclectic surroundings in Singapore’s Museum and Arts District, Hotel G Singapore is kicking off 2018 with an artistic collaboration with local artist agency Project XIV. Project XIV is the brainchild behind RCGNTN (pronounced ‘RECOGNITION’), a website dedicated purely to Singapore-based creative talent.

In a year-long collaboration, Hotel G Singapore will play host to a showcase filled with works curated by RCGNTN, in its new series of installations known as RCGNIZE. Updated every quarter, the main entrance area of Hotel G Singapore will serve as a gallery and welcome guests to a new look each time they visit. For the first installment, works from illustrator Kristal Melson, Risograph print studio Knuckles & Notch, designer toy labels Mighty Jaxx and FLABSLAB, calligraphy maestro HEGIRA and urban artist Traseone, will be displayed at the hotel’s entrance.

Described as RCGNTN outside the online realm, the goal of RCGNIZE is to create various pop-up galleries and shops in multiple locations throughout the city to offer access to consumers who may not otherwise be exposed to local artists and designers. All pieces curated are for sale on RCGNTN’s online store which offers a unique retail experience to buyers, allowing them to experience the works in person before purchasing them.

“Hotels G is renowned for creating unique lifestyle experiences through our properties globally. In Singapore, we were heavily inspired by the local art scene surrounding us and it only made sense to offer a platform for Singaporean artists to showcase their amazing talent and sell their works. We are excited to partner with Project XIV, on the first installation of RCGNIZE and look forward to the next two rotations that we have planned in 2018,” said Serge Rigodin, General Manager of Hotel G Singapore.

RCGNTN have filled the bookshelves at the hotel’s main entrance with local books and publications from Singaporean writers, artists and designers including Sonny Liew‘s award-winning The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye to Jahan Loh‘s graphic rich Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth.

The gallery is open 24 hours a day and accessible to members of the public for free.
