One of our favourite cartoonists, Joan Cornellà, is back! In collaboration with Hong Kong-based creative studio AllRightsReserved, the Contemporary Showcase: My Life Is Pointless by Joan Cornellà is an exhibition featuring a total of 48 pieces of artworks by the artist, making it his biggest solo exhibition ever in Hong Kong.

With nearly 8 million followers on social media, Cornellà is an icon of dark humour and uses satire to comment on the bleak side of human nature, thus, creating artworks that are simple, honest, and highly entertaining. The My Life Is Pointless exhibition marks Cornellà’s third solo exhibition in Hong Kong and will showcase for the first time a series of life-sized panels, shaped panel paintings, bronze sculptures, as well as a selection of limited print works.

The artist's past exhibitions in Hong Kong have received overwhelming responses, proving just how much Hongkongers relate to his worldviews – so don't sit this one out! The show will run from December 15 to 23, and January 4 to 29, 2021 at Sotheby’s Hong Kong Gallery.

Please note that all timeslots are fully booked, but you can make a request to be on the waitlist through the exhibition's online booking system here.
