New Global Art Initiative Launched In Hong Kong


Hong Kong, China, September 29, 2016 / - AccorHotels is delighted to announce the launch of Pullman Artist Playground in Greater China. The Park Lane Hong Kong, A Pullman Hotel is inaugurating the new brand’s signature global art initiative with an exciting display of images from Hong Kong-based US photographer Michael Kistler’s Urban Nightscapes series, ‘Melt with you’.

Pullman hotels are recognised for their vibrant urban locations. The brand embraces design, art, photography and local culture. In the new Artist Playground concept, the hotels worked with various renowned global artists and designers to breathe life into this vision  to make art more dynamic and meaningful. The Pullman Artist Playground forms part of the gallery and studio concept which creates new and timeless experiences for guests through a blend of elements in  local interest, unique culture and visual ingenuity.

“It is great to see the exciting display of Michael Kistler’s latest collection of Ubarn Nightscapes to inaugurate the launch of the Pullman Artist Playground here at The Park Lane Hong Kong, A Pullman Hotel,” said Michel Molliet, Chief Operating Officer of AccorHotels Greater China. “The exhibition gives guests of The Park Lane Hong Kong, A Pullman Hotel an opportunity to experience the unique elements of the brand signature through art, design and local culture in what is arguably the world’s most dynamic city.”

The exhibition will run from now until mid-February 2017 at the Ebb & Flow lobby lounge, a contemporary buzzing hotspot in the heart of Causeway Bay. Featuring a modern design, cutting edge tech elements and delectable food options, Ebb & Flow ensures a trendy vibe in line with the modern era of experiential lifestyle. More than just a hotel lounge, the forward-thinking concept of Ebb & Flow brings a seamless blend of innovation, comfort, discovery and epicurean fare, the venue of choice for the young millennial and global nomads in today’s hyper-connected world.

Curated by the internationally acclaimed Galerie Junger, Kistler’s eight thought-provoking artworks can be viewed on many levels where he uses unconventional perspectives and focuses on one-of-a-kind moments of collision, co-existence and merging of cityscape and urbanites. These pictures successfully capture the distinctive characteristics of Hong Kong’s permanent cityscape and the impermanence of its inhabitants.

About Michael Kistler
Born in Minneapolis, USA, Michael Kistler has spent 15 years in Asia, including a decade in Tokyo where he developed his characteristic photographic style, using his lenses to experiment with blur, movement and other abstract elements. Currently based in Hong Kong, he is fascinated by what is often the abstract human element and its connection to the concrete city. For him the urban landscape provides permanence while people come and go, creating a dynamic environment of fleeting moments. Michael Kistler’s work has been widely exhibited and published.
