With works of haute couture and ready-to-wear on display alongside one-of-a-kind pieces from Roitfeld's never-before-seen private collection, the visually and physically immersive exhibition will take its audience on a visual journey into the fantastical pages of Roitfeld's iconic fashion editorials.
Rare Chinese antiques and crafts from the K11 Craft & Guild Foundation’s archives will be on view alongside the fashion collection, demonstrating the beauty of inter-disciplinary and cross-generation arts and crafts.
The exhibition is a continuation of the ongoing partnership between Cheng and Roitfeld.

Hong Kong’s K11 Art Foundation (KAF) presents a very exciting exhibition - Breaking the Waves - from 17 December 2021 to 23 January 2022 at K11 HACC, a state-of-the art exhibition space in K11 Atelier, King’s Road. Founded by Adrian Cheng in 2010, K11 Art Foundation supports Chinese contemporary artists through exhibitions, artist residencies and educational programming and more.
Curated by ArtReview, Breaking the Waves brings the works by 14 highly acclaimed artists and collectives from around the world in a dialogue on the role of communication and social interaction in contemporary art practice. Participating Artists include Larry Achiampong, Chim↑Pom, Ripon Chowdhury with Ho Tzu Nyen, Adriano Costa, Eisa Jocson, Michael Joo, Jac Leirner, Yuko Mohri and David Horvitz, Laure Prouvost, Slime Engine, Wolfgang Tillmans, and Zheng Bo.
Featuring both static and interactive works, the exhibition title refers both to persistence, as in the unceasing breaking of waves on a shore, as well as the act of swimming against the tide. Exploring discussion and dialogue as a cornerstone of contemporary art, the exhibition conveys optimism about the latent potentials for renewal as we re-enter a world reshaped following the COVID-19.
