Wei-Ling Gallery collaborated with Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) in conjunction of the launch of the all-new Arteon R-Line. This collaboration offered collectors and art enthusiasts the unique opportunity to own scale models of the Arteon that have been transformed by 13 artists into unique sculptures. The art pieces were sold via auction, and proceeds from the auction were channelled to the Breast Cancer Welfare Association (BCWA).
This online program gave the opportunity for participants to stand a chance to own an artwork by Ivan Lam – valued at RM 15,000 – by purchasing a ticket through the giveaway website. One person is awarded with the actual artwork through a lucky draw. The proceeds raised through this project are donated to UNICEF.
In conjunction with #BuroArtBeat immersive experience, Buro24/7 Malaysia, the gallery hosted a charity auction where the 11 artists have each been given a glass bubble, to reinterpret, in a tribute to the Corum Bubble watch. Each artist has been given free rein to put their creative spin on the glass bubbles, which were then auctioned off to benefit a charity. Two of the artists took part in a live performance in collaboration with Google, to launch the Google Tilt Brush in Malaysia.
In conjunction with The Peak’s 25 years, Wei-Ling Gallery collaborated with this publishing company to bring an exhibition featuring 10 artists. As a truly Malaysian project, Royal Selangor also agreed to come on board by giving 10 of their signature melon tea pots for each artist to work on. The teapots were then auctioned off to aid a charity.
Through this exhibition 12 selected artists have been asked to explore the idea of self-love and come up with one major work which would reflect this theme. Through a collaboration with FURLA, the Italian premium leather goods and fashion accessories brand, each artist was also to asked to work on FURLA’s coveted Candy Bag. These ‘art’ bags went up for auction for the purpose of charity.
As the title suggests, the project, which was organised in collaboration with Auction City, involved artists focusing on pertinent issues to preserve our planet. Each artist also used The Robonut, a new limited-edition toy launched in 2012, as a ‘canvas’ to create an original work. The results were auctioned off in aid of ACRES (Animal Concerns Research and Education Society).
Wei-Ling Gallery teamed up with Absolut Vodka who have had a long and illustrious association with the art world, to hold an exhibition in which the participating artists were also to create original artworks using ABSOLUT vodka bottles. A private auction of these Absolut 18@8 Bottles was held, and the proceeds went to SPCA (Society For the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals).
