“Art is our one true global language. It knows no nation, it favours no race, and it acknowledges no class. It transcends our ordinary lives and lets us imagine what is possible.” – Richard Kamler
In 2019 The Peninsula Hotels launches an ambitious art programme titled Art in Resonance that will travel around its properties globally. The programme seeks to use art as a bridge to communicate across cultures and generations. The curators have commissioned artists to create work that is rooted in physical experiences that amplify the senses and foster collective participation.
For Art in Resonance, The Peninsula has chosen to commission new work by emerging and midcareer artists. In doing so, The Peninsula hopes to contribute to the cultural ecosystem by providing working artists with financial and logistical support to realise complex projects. New artists will be added to the programme every year and works will travel. Panel discussions and tours will also be organised throughout Art in Resonance’s duration, enhancing meaningful access to art and inspiring local communities around
