Dorsett Hospitality International Presents Dorsett Discoveries Lines Up an Interactive Art Installation at This Year’s Affordable Art Fair Hong Kong

May 7, 2019 Hotel News No Comments Email Email

Dorsett Hospitality International is proud to be the Exclusive Hotel Partner for Affordable Art Fair Hong Kong, London Battersea Autumn and Singapore 2019 as part of their ongoing commitment to support local talent through Dorsett Discoveries, which promotes and supports Hong Kong talent on a global stage.

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.

Throughout the four-day fair, Dorsett Hospitality International will be giving away 200 limited edition tote bags that is 100% made by cotton, personalised by Hong Kong Arts School alumni Meko Cheng, on a first-come-first-served basis as well as an interactive bird-folding workshop where guests will be able to try their hand at folding their own miniature Stickyline art piece and to take home, and to be inspired through the making processes part of Dorsett Discoveries promises.

Dorsett Hospitality International will also be running a social media competition at the Dorsett Discoveries booth. One fair-goer who signs up to the Dorsett – Your Rewards membership programme, and snaps the most creative photo of the installation with #dorsetthospitality #dorsettdiscoveries #DHIxAAF19 on Instagram (@DorsettHospitality) or Facebook (DorsettHospitalityInternational) will win a trip for two inclusive of flights, accommodation and an exclusive Stay Vibrant itinerary at Dorsett Shanghai. Winners will be announced on both social media platforms on 22nd May, 2019.
