HONG KONG SAR – Media OutReach – 27 March 2023 – “The ReStart Art Club”, the annual private party hosted by Princess Alia Al-Senussi and Dino Sadhwani during Art Basel Hong Kong returned on Thursday, 23rd March 2023 at K11 ATELIER King’s Road. This one-night only event brought together the global creative community and luminaries to celebrate the reinvigoration of the international art scene in Hong Kong.
Curated by Jason Swamy and produced by COI Communications, the event explored the binaries of art – familiar and foreign, digital and analog, acoustic and electronic, while showcasing the confluence of age, ethnicities, and cultures.
Alongside the hosts, this event was brought together by five distinguished Host Chairs: Adrian Cheng of K11 Group, Alan Lau of M+, Eva Chow of LACMA, Michael Govan of LACMA, Philip Tinari of UCCA, together with 18 Host Committee members.
Celebrating arts, culture, creativity
As guests arrived, they were met with a modern Chinese music performance where musicians performed amidst an elevated flower stage with dancers concealed within the installation.
Guests were invited to enjoy a Five Flower Tea Gin cocktail before traversing through the nature-themed digital exhibit created by d’strict at ARTE M, the first overseas showcase of Korea’s largest immersive media art exhibition. A molecular cocktail was then offered as guests were guided into a lift with an eccentric dancer. The lift opened into a mysterious speakeasy with traditional Hong Kong and industrial elements. Spectacular local and international performances were unveiled throughout the night such as Grammy-award winning musician Sly5thAve, accordion virtuoso Mario Batkovic, and other dance and DJ performances.
Princess Alia Al-Senussi and Dino Sadhwani, have successfully created yet another captivating and fun-filled event. It is hoped that the event will continue its success in celebrating the collaboration among people passionate about art, culture, performance, gastronomy, music and entertainment.
