Gallery Intern/ Gallery Assistant – 3812 Gallery

Gallery Intern/Gallery Assitant (6-12months)

With gallery spaces in the heart of Hong Kong and London, 3812 has both Europe and China written into its DNA. It represents Hsiao Chin, one of the major postwar painters whose work can be found in M+ and New York’s Metropolitan and who lived in Milan for 40 years, and important ink artists including Raymond Fung from Hong Kong, whose works are in The Asian Art Museum of San Francisco and Hong Kong Palace Museum as well as Nanjing based painter Liu Guofu, whose meticulous works are in Macau’s MGM Chairman’s Collection and Shanghai Art Museum; and it stages ‘fascinating’ exhibitions such as ‘Looking East: St Ives Artists and Buddhism’ – exploring the debt of British art to Asian philosophy.

Co-founded by Calvin Hui and Mark Peaker, 3812 represents and exhibits both modern and contemporary Chinese and British artists, fostering dialogues between them.
