Special Exhibitions

Le Jardin à Fine Art Asia

With the aim of kindling the passion for art collecting in aspiring collectors, this specially curated exhibition is a youthful and vibrant interpretation of antique collecting, presenting a range of antiques and artworks with a garden theme and the integration of artificial intelligence. Inspired by the symbolism of a garden, Le Jardin à Fine Art Asia is dedicated to new audiences who are enthusiastic about exploring art collecting. A garden is often the first place we are exposed to the beauty of nature. It represents a microcosm of nature’s vast diversity and grandeur. Whether one is looking to experience the intricacies of craftsmanship, touch the historical traces of antiquities, or simply appreciate the artworks at a close distance, we believe that one will discover hidden treasures in the exhibition that are available at a reasonable price and exceed one’s expectations.

The Aesthetics of Wandering

Wandering, following.

Showcasing antique furniture and contemporary artworks, this exhibition aims to create a space where viewers can follow their hearts and wander around.
