This time, it is the golden age of the Han dynasty. The show features a display of 162 ancient artefacts and relics, which showcase the economic growth and… Continue reading Hong Kong Museum of History: The Rise of the Celestial Empire

My highlights from Art Basel in Hong Kong 2015

I was contemplating whether or not to write this post - there are so many Art Basel in Hong Kong articles out there, but then I thought everyone has different views and opinions. My take is that it is a great opportunity to see so many great masters of the 20th and 21st century in… Continue reading My highlights from Art Basel in Hong Kong 2015

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.

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
