To kick start 2018, Brickhouse will be continuing with a love affair of street art with a series of events showcasing and producing art to celebrate local artists and generate more of the community spirit that Brickhouse thrives off.
In January, Brickhouse will welcome two featured artists who guests can meet and mingle with during launch events, learning more about their work and inspiration over drinks and nibbles. What’s more, Brickhouse is bringing back the Art Barrel Jam to unleash the creativity of local artists.
Tuesday 9th January will be the launch of Mherck Dela Cruz at Brickhouse, a Hong Kong-based Filipino photographer who has been living in Hong Kong for the past six years. Growing up he always loved cameras and so his family encouraged him to embrace his creative streak and to get behind the lens. Mherck’s photography style can be described as raw and edgy. He does not follow traditional styles and pushes the boundaries of imagination in terms of concepts and compositions. He aims to provoke the mind and senses and to break the mould of traditional photography. His work is always to promote body confidence, self-confidence and beauty in all of its forms, no matter what shape or size. His work will be on display and available for purchase until the 28th January.
On Saturday 13th January, Brickhouse brings back the Art Barrel Jam… a day that brings together the unique combination of live art, food, drink and music, all taking place in a secret alleyway that is home to Brickhouse. The concept is simple – a selection of artists, 5 huge barrels and a whole lot of imagination.
The idea of this event is to celebrate the local Hong Kong art scene and support local artists by providing an outlet for creativity – something that is core to the Brickhouse experience. Whether you’re an avid art lover, indulge in art in your spare time or just want to join in the fun, Art Barrel will not disappoint. Opening its doors early, Brickhouse will be home to an art jam session like no other. There are no rules, no restrictions and no limitations to what the artists can create on the barrels and after an afternoon at Brickhouse, who knows what could happen…
On Monday 29th January, Brickhouse will be welcoming Kiwi photographer Carmen Huter for an exclusive preview of her exhibition entitled “In Pursuit of Light”. As an accomplished travel photographer with a loyal following of 70k+ on social media, several National Geographic online features, many trusted brand partnerships and more than two dozen countries later, the once unknown has morphed itself into a beautiful, messy reality that Carmen is eager to share with you. To create more than to consume are words the 24 year old lives by.
For this exhibition, the viewer will embark on a journey through continents and cultures. A curated mix of landscape, wildlife and documentary photographs from around the world will be displayed with neat insights into the process of taking them. Prepare to feel inspired to explore.
All of Carmen’s artwork will be on display for the month of February, available for purchase and part of the funds will go to Plastic Oceans, a cause she is deeply passionate about.
