Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
With the changing seasons, Hong Kong is presenting an array of not-to-miss exhibitions. On view through May, here’s what to see in the city.
Mark Bradford at Hauser & Wirth
March 27 – May 12
Hauser & Wirth is inaugurating its Hong Kong space with new works by American artist Mark Bradford. Renowned for his large scale abstract and mixed-media paintings, the exhibit is a continuation of themes explored by Bradford, such as the representation of power within societal structures. Returning to the motif of the “map,” Bradford’s work explores populations, communities, and the hidden social injustices in marginalized groups. These works are also connected to Bradford’s ongoing project with Rio Teraì dei Pensieri in Italy to promote the reintegration of former inmates into society.
OSGEMEOS at Lehmann Maupin
March 26 – May 12
Lehmann Maupin is pleased to announce “Déjà Vu,” the first solo exhibition of the Brazilian artist duo OSGEMEOS. Here, twin brothers Gustavo and Otavio Pandolfo explore their influences in pop culture, music, folk, and art, presenting a multi-sensory experience. In addition to a sound installation, we see traditional paintings of yellow characters reflecting both the real and imagined experiences of the artists.
Wolfgang Tillmans at David Zwirner
March 26 – May 12
David Zwirner is hosting Wolfgang Tillmans’s first exhibition in Hong Kong. In addition to photographs never seen by the public, the exhibition also features a selection of the artist’s work that responds to surroundings and self-contained environment (such as an audio work of the sound of pedestrians that explores human connection). Investigating the visible world and its limits, Tillmans’ will accompany the exhibition with a catalogue in collaboration with David Zwirner books. There will be a book signing with the artist on March 28, 2pm at the David Zwirner Hong Kong.
KAWS at Perrotin
March 22 – May 19
Perrotin is proud to announce exhibitions in its Tokyo and Hong Kong galleries by American artist KAWS. Using a playful, graphic language, KAWS is widely known for exploring the worlds of art and design through paintings, murals, large-scale sculptures, street art, and graphic and product design. Drawing inspiration from pop culture, the artist creates hybrid cartoons and human characters that are emphasized through strong lines and color.
