Marriott Bonvoy, Marriott International’s travel programme, is joining hands with Art Basel Hong Kong 2021 to present uncommon art experiences and exclusive access to Bonvoy members. In partnership with charitable organization, The Plated Project, Bonvoy will display a series of artworks titled ‘A Memory of the Future’ to bring Hong Kong into limelight as a destination through its arts and culture, motivating travel as recovery is on the horizon. The series will be exhibited at Art Basel Hong Kong 2021 from 21st May – 23rd May, 2021.

Bart Buiring, chief sales and marketing officer of Asia Pacific for Marriott International stated- “We are delighted to team up with Art Basel Hong Kong to bring an exquisite art experience to guests and our Marriott Bonvoy members.”

“Through our global portfolio of more than 7,600 properties and our Marriott Bonvoy Moments platform, we are able to provide endless inspiration for members to pursue their passions through the pillars of culinary, lifestyle, entertainment and sports. I am particularly pleased to bring back Marriott Bonvoy Moments to the region where our members can enjoy exclusive VIP access in Hong Kong or virtually from anywhere in the world together with Art Basel Hong Kong 2021,” Buiring further added.

Commemorating Local Culture and Eliciting Travel Inspiration

‘A Memory of the Future’ showcases four unique ceramic plate designs that pay homage to the unique art-forms that are intrinsically Hong Kong, which encompasses Cantonese opera, hand-carved mahjong tiles, hand-made stencils, and neon signs. Through the art works, Bonvoy gathers attention on Hong Kong as being a destination with rich arts and cultural heritage, inviting travellers to reimagine conventional Hong Kong art forms across four themes – playful, poetic, majestic, and vibrant – that points to the dynamic nature of Asia’s World City.

In association with The Plated Project and designed by celebrated artists such as Anila Agha, Kalakaari Haath, Insane51, Suket Dhir, and Tarini Sethi,, the art collection gives prominence to a Chinese opera female warrior riding a majestic horse, Chinese motifs in a chic black and white print; a mahjong game scene in a fantasy world that unifies modern and traditional; to neon-lit streets of Hong Kong. The exclusively commissioned and limited-edition ceramic art plates motivate wanderlust and intend to explore arts, culture and heritage when travel again becomes possible.
