“Chatham Maison” Art Research & Exchange Centre
“Chatham Maison” Art Research and Exchange Centre is located in an elegant and mysterious British colonial building in Mid-Levels, Hong Kong with a history that dates back to nearly 100 years. The building was listed as a Grade II historical building by the Hong Kong Government in 2018. British architect John Caer Clark completed the construction in 1927 and became the first owner of the building. During the Japanese occupation, it was used as an office for senior Japanese military officers; between 1952 and 1973, the building was converted from a private residence to a private secondary school (Chatham English School), providing education for children of families living in the Peak District. Since the outbreak of the epidemic in early 2020, Wei Gallery has breathed new artistic life into the building beyond its commercial space on Wyndham Street in Central, naming it "Chatham Maison" and transforming it into a non-profit art research and exchange institution. The main purpose of the gallery is to conduct art research, establish artist research cases, organize academic seminars, hold regular art lectures and training, publish, host visiting scholars and artists in residence for creative and exchange activities, and organize non-commercial exhibitions.
