Gallery Director: UNVEIL the art in everyday life.
Built with the combined function for commerce and residence, a #SHOPHOUSE, or more referred to as "tong lau" in Hong Kong as well as in Southern China and Southeast Asia, is a type of tenement building prevalent in the late 19th century to the 1960s.
Housed in a 1930s Grade III heritage building, THE SHOPHOUSE explores boundaries between art, design, and everyday living.
Attuned to the social and cultural milieu of contemporary life, THE SHOPHOUSE is a culmination of artistic expressions by cross-field artists, makers and creative insiders. Inspiring new conversations and narratives in dialogue with its ever-evolving space, THE SHOPHOUSE revitalises its heritage through its stimulating programmes, and weaves together different forms of artistic expressions into everyday life.
