July 13, 2021 - August 26, 2021
Ben Brown Fine Arts presents a group exhibition “Ze/Ro” through August 26 2021. The exhibition is organized by Hong Kong-based curator Shirky Chan who is a part of the Hong Kong Art Gallery Association's (HKAGA) Summer Programme.
The group show features the work of five artists Au Hoi Lam, Chan Ka Kiu, Christy Chow, Jaffa Lam and Jess Lau, who are all living and working in Hong Kong. Each addresses notions of identity, gender, society, and self, framed by social constructs and desired dissolutions of gender. Chan explains that “gender is a social construct,” and the title of the show is taken from the adaptation of the new gender pronoun "ze" instead of "he" and "she." It “represents non-binary gender identities. As such, "hero" is no longer the privilege of "he" in the world of linguistics and reality. Perhaps we can start calling it "Ze/Ro" from now on.”
