This article is mostly about moneyed folks. But it is interesting to see how kids of tycoons are now involved in making art more accessible in Hong Kong: because prime estate is owned by the family, they avail some of these high visibility spaces for art.
“Hui co-founded Twenty Alpha, a multifunction space for experimental art. It is working to build a new audience from a studio space operated by Art and Cultural Outreach, an organisation that leases space in a building on Hong Kong island to artists for a fraction of market rents.
Finding affordable space in Hong Kong for local artists in particular will remain a challenge, observers say. But tycoons’ descendants believe they have a role to play in using their wealth and influence to build up Hong Kong’s art scene while making it accessible to the public.”
