“Mind Games” at the Louis Vuitton Gallery
Ever looked at a painting and wondered “what on earth was this guy thinking?” You’re not the only one. British photographer Hugo Tillman spent more than two years interviewing artists from Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Hangzhou, asking them about their dreams and fears and delving into their subconscious minds to bring us “Mind Games.” Now on display at the Louis Vuitton Gallery, this unique exhibit features compelling portraits of the stars of the contemporary Chinese art scene. The pieces are surreal and theatrical, offering a rare glimpse into who these people really are and the events in their lives that sparked their creative inspirations. (Until October 19, Louis Vuitton Maison, 5 Canton Road, TST, Kowloon, 10am – 9pm)

Belvedere Vodka has teamed up with Jade Jagger to create the “Jagger Dagger,” an 18-carat white gold ice pick, studded with 12-carats of diamonds. This limited edition ice pick has been used at hot clubs around the world to create cocktails served with hand-cut ice in celebration of the launch of Belvedere’s cutting-edge “Luxury Reborn” advertising campaign.
