Galleri Magazine held the launch of their second issue on Thursday night at Racks MDB in Central. The event ran from seven until ten and packed the place with movers in Hong Kong’s art scene. Galleri was founded to heighten awareness of the city’s creative talent and so far it’s been a big success.
Flipping through the new issue, there’s an impressive mixture of artists, many of whom I’ve never heard of before. The mediums represented inside run the full spectrum, from drawing and photography to clothing design and sculpture.
Copies of the new issue were placed throughout Racks, allowing guests to pick up and browse at will.[photopress:Galleri_magazine_HK_racks.jpg,full,pp_image]
Several of Rack’s pool tables were covered over with plexi-glass, the pages from the latest Galleri magazine displayed below.[photopress:Racks_MDB_Hong_Kong.jpg,full,pp_image]
The turnout was similar to the kick-off event at Kee club several months ago. The atmosphere was fun and friendly, and guests were mingling freely.[photopress:galleri_magazine_Hong_Kong.jpg,full,pp_image] [photopress:Galleri_magazine_Racks_HK.jpg,full,pp_image]
The first issue of Galleri brought participating artists a significant number of commissions in addition to heightened exposure within the creative community. Look for Galleri issue two to repeat the success!
