My highlights from Art Central

Art Central is own until tomorrow... and I had a chance to visit it already yesterday. It is a new contemporary art fair showcasing new talent next to established artists and galleries, and it takes place in a huge tent on the new Central Harbourfront. More than 75 international galleries are taking part and they… Continue reading My highlights from Art Central

Art exhibition: Landscape as Cultural Self-portrait at Hanart TZ Gallery

One visit to the Pedder Street building provides a lot of input for several blog posts... there are so many galleries in the building, there's always something new to see and discover. This time, my recent visit uncovered a new gallery that I have never visited before: Hanart TZ Gallery. This is one of the… Continue reading Art exhibition: Landscape as Cultural Self-portrait at Hanart TZ Gallery

Art exhibition: Ben Quilty at Pearl Lam Galleries

I've been lucky that I managed to see so many exhibitions in the Pedder Building last week... but I've been unlucky that I've not had enough time to write about them. Again, an interesting exhibition at the Pearl Lam Galleries that I really enjoyed but it already closed its doors (on March 1) so you… Continue reading Art exhibition: Ben Quilty at Pearl Lam Galleries

Art exhibition: Blackwelder at the Gagosian Gallery

While I just barely managed to write in time about yesterday's last day of the Vik Muniz exhibition, I clearly missed the boat on the Blackwelder one at the Gagosian Gallery. That happens easily when you have a small baby at home and are busy entertaining overseas visitors! Last week I saw so many great… Continue reading Art exhibition: Blackwelder at the Gagosian Gallery

Art exhibition: Vik Muniz at Ben Brown Fine Arts

Quick - today is the last day of another great exhibition at the Ben Brown Fine Arts Gallery in the Pedder Building. It is the second exhibition that I've visited there (after Tseng Kwong Chi at the end of 2014) and again, I am really fascinated by it. The exhibition called 'Album' by Vik Muniz… Continue reading Art exhibition: Vik Muniz at Ben Brown Fine Arts

Times Square Living Room Museum: The Legend of Lion Dance exhibition

The Living Room Museum at the Times Square is hosting an exhibition about the Legend of Lion Dance. Lion dances are performed to bring luck and to get rid of the devil. This tradition can be traced back to a story that took place long ago: During the rule of the legendary "Yellow Emperor", a monster… Continue reading Times Square Living Room Museum: The Legend of Lion Dance exhibition

Photography exhibition: Ho Fan at AO VERTICAL

The other exhibition we visited in Chai Wan was Ho Fan's 'A Hong Kong Memoir', which runs until January 31 at the AO VERTICAL gallery. It really is worth a visit, so if you are into photography, you should go and see it! Ho Fan is one of Asia’s most beloved street photographers. He captured… Continue reading Photography exhibition: Ho Fan at AO VERTICAL

Art exhibition: Soulmate at YY9 Gallery

I am a bit annoyed with myself that I discovered this exhibition late - that's because it is hosted at the YY9 Gallery in Chai Wan, which is in the Far East of Hong Kong Island, and it is open only on Wed-Sat. So I had to find some time to go there - but… Continue reading Art exhibition: Soulmate at YY9 Gallery

Tseng Kwong Chi at Ben Brown Art Gallery

I think I've found my favourite exhibition in Hong Kong this year - it's at the Ben Brown Fine Arts Gallery in the Pedder Building. When I walked in, I had no idea what to expect and I was blown away. I had no idea who Tseng Kwong Chi and at a first glance, I… Continue reading Tseng Kwong Chi at Ben Brown Art Gallery
