Meeting Hong Kong based gallerist Nicole Schoeni at Elms Lesters in 2008 was a pivotal moment for us. She encouraged us to take our first expedition to Asia, and we worked alongside her for several years, before exhibiting independently in Singapore, Taiwan and Beijing.
Now 12 years later, Nicole is opening her own space in London called SCHOENI PROJECTS and with her usual aplomb has kicked off with a truly ground breaking exhibition ‘disCONNECT’ which includes installations by Adam Neate, Vhils and Herakut amongst others.
Embracing global lockdown, she has curated an exhibition with international artists, which is available to view both in person, by appointment, at the gallery in South West London, as well as very satisfyingly in Virtual Reality online.
Then exhibition runs from 24 July – 24 August 2020
‘disCONNECT’ – a locked-down Artist Takeover
The inaugural exhibition at Schoeni Projects’ London space, a Victorian townhouse in South West London, the exhibition, titled disCONNECT, transforms the period building – currently under renovation – with new site-specific works from ten urban artists working across seven countries. The exhibition is presented in close collaboration with HKwalls – a Hong-Kong based non-profit arts organisation that aims to create opportunities for local and international artists to showcase their talent through the mediums of street art and street culture.’
