We’re pleased to announce our upcoming exhibition at #PaceGallery in Hong Kong‘s H Queen’s building, “Mao Yan: By the Edge,” opening with a public reception on 7 June from 6–8 PM. This is Mao Yan’s first exhibition in #HongKong, and will feature ten works completed in 2018. – Under his father’s influence, #MaoYan began studying painting at an early age. By the time he was a teenager he had already mastered advanced techniques, and his talent was recognized even before he was admitted to the Central Academy of Fine Arts. In 1991, after graduating from the Oil Painting Department at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, Mao Yan began teaching at Nanjing University of the Arts, where he began to delve into portraiture. In his article Explorations in Realism, renowned art critic Li Xianting named Mao Yan as the representative of Chinese Neo-realism, stating that his works depict the "portraits of a generation whose emotions are gradually disappearing." – Image: ©️ Mao Yan

#SixWeeksSixDecades of Billy Apple Since the early 1980s, Apple has complemented his installation practice with text-based works that draw attention to the art system and highlight the artist’s social networks. These relationships are represented in the exhibition with works such as Bartered (Untransacted) (1984/2018), I.O.U. (Untransacted) (1987/2018), and Art and Life Business Plan (1985/2018), a composition created by dividing the surface of the canvas into the constituent parts of the golden ratio and weighting the colour according to the equivalent ratios of white and black to create the work's grey scale. ———————————————————————— Current exhibition @rossiandrossi Hong Kong: Billy Apple ® Six Decades 1962-2018. Open until July 28 -Tuesday to Saturday 11am-6pm. #mustsee

"Something There and Never There 那是有又沒有" Leung Chi Wo 梁志和 – 23.1 – 10.3.2018 – Opening Reception:20.1.2018, Saturday, 4 – 6:30pm Artist will be present. – “Something There and Never There” is the solo exhibition of Leung Chi Wo, centred around the tumultuous year of 1967 in Hong Kong. Linking his own biography to the history of the city, Leung constructs parallel worlds that connect vastly different events, characters and objects together. Civilian riots and vintage Volkswagen, student protests and Charlie Chaplin’s film, political propaganda and songs by The Beatles: they all crossed paths by coincidence without our knowledge or entering into official history. By using diverse media including photography, video, and installations comprising of found images, music and objects from 1967, Leung performs a deep engagement with a subjective history through archival research, conceptual intervention and poetic re-imagination. The artist demonstrates that history is full of ambivalence, absurdity and ambiguities, and that through re-enacting and reconstructing these episodes in 1967, one can as well reflect on the current socio-political situation in Hong Kong. 梁志和最新個展“那是有又沒有”以香港六七暴動為軸心,藝術家透過將個人歷史和社會歷史事件的連結,建構出匯合截然不同的事件、人物和物件的平行世界。民間暴動和古董甲蟲車、學生示威和查理·卓別靈的電影、政治宣傳和披頭四的歌曲:它們各因機緣巧合而相互交錯,未被列入官方歷史,甚至名不經傳。 藝術家混合不同的媒介,包括攝影、錄像、及由音樂和1967年的圖像和現成物組成的裝置,以概念化的邏輯思維及詩意式的想像介入檔案資料搜集的系統中,以建構一段段主觀歷史。藝術家引領我們反思歷史本身的矛盾、荒謬和含糊的本質之餘,亦藉著重新演繹和重構發生於1967年的事件,反照香港當前的社會狀態。 – Details 詳情: blindspotgallery.com/exhibition/something-there-and-never-there #Blindspotgallery #hongkongartist #LeungChiWo #梁志和 #1967riots #hongkonghistory #installation #photography #thebeatles #propaganda #charliechaplin #volkswagenbeetle
