Spring 2016

Young Friends had a promising start to the new 2015- 2016 year. We kickstarted the year by co-hosting a membership renewal gathering with Young Art Professionals at bar and restaurant, BIBO. We had a great turn out and welcomed many new members, with special thanks to BIBO’s team for all their delightful complimentary canapés, drinks, and insightful tour around their exciting art collection led by Justin Van Herwerden.

Our next gathering took place at Hong Kong’s hotspot, Ping Pong 129, where we were generously provided with drinks and canapés for all members. It has been very exciting to meet so many new young art professionals and art enthusiasts in Hong Kong who have recently joined as members. We look forward to seeing more of our new members at other Friends events.

The Young Friends committee is planning a number of events for this year: exhibition previews in the early months of 2016, a collaborative young artist project with institutions we worked closely with in 2015, and our annual young artist exhibition towards the end of 2016, so do keep up to date with our upcoming events on Facebook and come join us!
