In 2009, Hu’s founder Jennie Hu was on the lookout for a piece of artwork for her home. Discovering such a piece, ‘Singer Songwriter’ by Bill Hammond, triggered a search of a different kind altogether. What if there was a way for Kiwi artists to collaborate in their own backyard with artists from around the world?
When Jenni found a beautiful lifestyle farm in Riverhead the puzzle was complete. Here, international artists can collaborate and immerse themselves in New Zealand’s rich art and culture scene while local artists can explore the possibilities of reciprocal residences overseas.
Hu’s provides a unique platform for artists to create exciting new works, the creative fruits of which can be enjoyed by guests, who can recharge and rest in truly beautiful surroundings.
