Mandarin Oriental Pudong, Shanghai invites travellers from around the world to “Evergreen Spirit”, an art exhibition by contemporary Chinese artist Sean Wu. Celebrating the hotel’s 10th Anniversary, the exhibition gives guests the opportunity to rediscover all that is beautiful about the orient while paying tribute to the hotel’s past decade in China’s cosmopolitan metropolis. The hotel has also created some tempting offers and accommodation packages.
Home to an impressive collection of 4,000 pieces of art, Mandarin Oriental Pudong, Shanghai, located on the east banks of Huangpu River, is a must-visit destination for art connoisseurs. Ten years have passed since the opening of this riverside gallery, and there’s no better way to recognise its milestone achievement than infusing a new artistic energy into the hotel. Collaborating with artist Sean Wu, the hotel is hosting the unique “Evergreen Spirit” exhibition until 30 June. Art installations inspired by bamboo and upholding the concept of sustainability, to which Mandarin Oriental is actively committed, are placed throughout the property.
“Bamboo represents the evergreen and oriental spirit. Understated, elegant and artistic: these are my first impressions of Mandarin Oriental Pudong, Shanghai, which translate into oriental beauty and aesthetics. I’m greatly honoured to be invited as part of the celebration of the hotel’s 10th Anniversary,” says Sean Wu. He continues, “The past three years have been challenging but our passion for travel, lifestyle and good food has never stopped. As China welcomes world travellers again, I would like to join hands with Mandarin Oriental Pudong, Shanghai to invite everyone to rediscover oriental beauty.”
All artworks are made from recycled green glass bottles, which are ground into fine particles then combined with natural resin. Through this collaboration, the hotel hopes to inspire people to take action towards a more sustainable future.
A celebration party took place on 25th April to commemorate the opening of Mandarin Oriental Pudong, Shanghai 10 years ago and to mark the start of “Evergreen Spirit”. During this two-month celebration, guests can look afresh at oriental beauty and charm while also experiencing tempting offers inspired by the exhibition.
Drawing inspiration from “Evergreen Spirit”, the hotel’s Head Pastry Chef Marx Ma and his talented team have crafted an Evergreen Afternoon Tea, which can be enjoyed at the hotel’s iconic Riviera Lounge for RMB688 plus 15% for two people to share.
