Due to popular demand, Breathing Space: Contemporary Art from Hong Kong at Asia Society is now extended to August 13, 2017! Green Art Asia’s artists include Vaan Ip and South Ho. http://asiasociety.org/hong-kong
This exhibition presents 11 local artists whose works look at the pressure of living in this city and make room for us to pause, reflect, respond and possibly challenge the world around us. Their works engage with urban experience, current affairs, and shared and personal history in a range of medium from painting to sculpture, video to mixed media installation. The exhibition consists of two parts: inside the gallery are extant works that contemplate various restrictions we encounter every day, from the spatial to psychological, the social to historical. Beyond the gallery, the outdoor area of our site is opened up for new commissions that strive to overcome these boundaries through artistic experimentation.
The participating artists are: Chilai Howard, Chloë Cheuk, Cheuk Wing Nam, Enoch Cheung, South Ho, Vaan Ip, Ko Sin Tung, Andio Lai, Siu Wai Hang, Adrian Wong and Magdalen Wong, and the exhibition is led by in-house curator Dominique Chan with Joyce Hei-ting Wong and Ashley Nga-sai Wu as assistant curators.
