The Hotel’s artistic exhibition is an exemplification of Pullman brand’s signature global art initiative – which promises to bring the design vision of artists and designers around the world to life at the forefront of the space. First to launch in Hong Kong, the “Artist Playground” is open to guests and the general public, the dynamic exhibition will last for four months.

The well-cultivated art offering will comprise of different components, ranging from fixed iconic art installations and contemporary pieces around the “Artist Playground”.

“We are delighted to be the pioneer of Pullman’s art initiatives ‘Artist Playground’ in the world.  Art is a huge draw for millennials and global nomads we welcome from around the world,” shared General Manager, Mr Luc Bollen.

Following the success of the Hotel’s previous exhibitions, including that of Austrian photographer Paul Kolp and award-winning Chinese artist Mao Yanyang, the internationally acclaimed curator Galerie Junger again curates a variety of eight artworks from the “Melt with You” series bringing captured moments of the distinctive characteristics of urban life in Hong Kong to Ebb & Flow.  Particularly known for his ability to articulate in images the contrast between the permanence of the cityscape and the fluidity of people, Kistler’s artwork single-handedly captures the transience experienced the gritty locale of Chung King Mansion in Tsim Sha Tsui.

Delving into the night, guests can expect to be intrigued by a kaleidoscope of neon-lights from shop signs off busy streets blurred into the faceless people who walk the city through the collection of prints and a digital display on the TV wall in the hotel lobby.  True to Pullman Hotel’s signature art initiatives, the “Artist Playground” cocktail launch and vernissage invites VIPs, corporate professionals and media to partake in Kistler’s artistic and dynamic world today (27 September 2016).

Born in Minneapolis, Kistler has spent fifteen years in Asia. In many ways, Kistler’s story is that of every man in Hong Kong – where a mixture of backgrounds and a life split in different geographies are embedded into the DNA of a majority who live in the city.
