About Pearl Lam Galleries
Pearl Lam started exhibiting and promoting Chinese contemporary art and design in 1993 in Hong Kong. Currently, Pearl Lam Galleries consists of two spaces in Shanghai: a Fine Art Gallery and a Special Project Space; as well as the recently-launched gallery in Hong Kong. Pearl Lam Galleries will also open a new design gallery in Shanghai and a major space at Gillman Barracks in Singapore in 2013.
Presenting an exhibition program of the highest quality, Pearl Lam Galleries has championed the promotion and re-evaluation of the philosophy, perceptions and aesthetics of Chinese art for almost 20 years. From an early stage, popular touring shows, such as Awakening: La France Mandarine, the French influence on Chinese Art (2004-06), characterised the exhibition program with their intercultural dialogue and dynamic work by international artists from established and emerging markets. Exhibiting Chinese artists such as Lan Zhenghui, Li Tianbing, Wang Dongling, Zhang Huan, Zheng Chongbin, and Zhu Jinshi reinterpret traditions, fuse cross-cultural influences and examine China today. The exhibition program also presents major solo exhibitions of international artists stimulating cross-cultural dialogue and cultural exchange between China and the rest of the world.
Pearl Lam Galleries has also tirelessly promoted design as an art form in China. Pearl Lam has funded an artist-in-residence program for artists and designers across the globe. Pearl Lam Design shows works by established and emerging international designers including André Dubreuil, Maarten Baas, Mattia Bonetti, and Studio Makkink & Bey. They are invited to push the boundaries of traditional Chinese art and craft techniques and create new works that reflect their experiences in China.
The Hong Kong gallery program features both fine art and design exhibitions to complement the existing programs of the Shanghai galleries. It will continue to support young emerging artists such as Tsang Kin-Wah. The gallery will also bring solo shows by major international artists to Hong Kong, including Jenny Holzer and Yinka Shonibare in 2013.
艺术门 20 年来一直呈现高质量的艺术展览，不断推广中国艺术，倡导对其哲学、理念与审美的重新审视。由早期开始极受欢迎的巡迥展《激醒:中法艺术的碰撞与融合》(2004-2006)，艺术门最大特点在于通过独具匠心的展览，促进跨文化的艺术交流，与国际上具影响力及有潜力的艺术家合作。合作的艺术家，如蓝正辉、李天兵、王冬龄、张洹、郑重宾及朱金石，重新演绎传统，融汇跨界元素，展示当今的中国。展览计划中亦包括与国际艺术家合作的个人展览，激发中国及世界的跨文化对话及交流。
艺术门不懈地推动设计在中国作为一种艺术形式加以推广，也力邀全球各地艺术家前来驻场创作。对比窗（Pearl Lam Design）展示国际知名设计师和新兴设计师的作品，包括André Dubreuil、Maarten Baas、Mattia Bonetti及Studio Makkink & Bey。我们鼓励这些设计师的跨界融合，将中国传统艺术与传统工艺制作技术糅合，创作出能反映其在华经历，或展现中国文化的新作。
作为艺术门在上海画廊展览计划的拓展和丰富，香港画廊将同时推广艺术和设计的展览，并将继续支持如曾建华等的新兴艺术家。此外亦将举办国际知名艺术家的个展，包括于 2013 年展出的Jenny Holzer及Yinka Shonibare。
