K11 MUSEA, a sparkling cultural landmark with art as its key note, is surrounded with with imaginative pieces of art in every corner. With the grand opening of K11 Art & Cultural Centre at its sixth floor, these museum quality art pieces across K11 MUSEA will be escalated to the next level.
This mystical multi-purpose space spanning over 105,000 sq. ft. featuring an inspiring collection by acclaimed artists such as Chris HUEN Sin Kan, Sterling Ruby, Mary Weatherford, Matthias Weischer, Yayoi Kusama and Turner Prize winner Oscar Murillo; while magnificent sculptures by Katharina Grosse, Tatiana Trouvé and Erwin Wurm, await outside at K11 Sculpture Park.
Another signature featured artwork is “Timo, Danny, Nasim and Mary Go to the Agave Fields” by Mary Weatherford, the recognized Los Angeles-based artist. Recognized as one of the leading painters of her generation, as well as one of the most astute and daring practitioners taking on the legacies of American abstraction, Mary Weatherford painted with deceptively effortless gestural brushstrokes, finished with a neon rod screwed directly into the canvas — a perfect embodiment of West Coast ecologies, neon-illuminated streets and her own memories and reflections.
Other key highlights include local artist Chris HUEN Sin Kan’s Trees, which draws inspiration from the charm and beauty of commonplace happenings, and Turner Prize winner Oscar Murillo’s día mundial de las aves migratorias which translates into “World Migratory Bird Day” and consists of elements that are inspired by different cultures and regions.
The Gourmet Chamber, which is also at the sixth floor, will debut with a diverse range of restaurants and bars – including COBO HOUSE, COUCOU Reserve, Fine Wine Experience, Sushi Watatsumi and TeaMiTea — opening in phases alongside the incredible artwork on display.
