De Lounge (城藝休廳), an independent arts and cultural unit in Hong Kong, serves as a sanctuary for young local artists and creators to reconnect with their inner peace and reflect on the pace of life. Amid the city's abundance of arts and cultural organizations, including art groups, organisations, galleries, and foundations, there are opportunities to encounter like-minded individuals and present their works to the public.
As Hong Kong is an international city, the psychological pressure of daily life on citizens has increased. As citizens, we seldom pause within the urban landscape to listen, create stories behind us, and explore the beauty of our city.
De Lounge established in mid-2022, driven by the concepts of art, craftsmanship, and design, seeks to uncover artists' stories and insights within the urban context, creating and perpetuating spaces that belong to the city's inhabitants, allowing them to appreciate the details of urban life during their leisure time. De Lounge curate irregular & opusculum exhibitions, and independent publications. Let the “idea” flow, the stories/texts/designs belong will become an exclusive breathing space in between.
本地藝文單位眾多，不論藝團、藝廊、公營機構等，均讓藝術家們有一地之遇，為作品尋求有緣人。而香港為國際矚目之地，城市人的心理壓力俱增，我們作為使用者，稀少為社區與都市停留，聆聽故事、創造故事 —— 發掘她的美。
