City of Darkness by Greg Girard and Ian Lambot

Offering a unique insight into the remarkable community that was the Kowloon Walled City, City of Darkness is an exhibition that explores into the now-demolished organic megastructure that, somehow, without basic services, regulations or building standards, managed to not only survive but positively thrive. Showcasing this influential body of work put together by photographers Greg Girard and Ian Lambot, the exhibition brings this extraordinary community that held such a looming presence in Hong Kong into the spotlight.

Famous by proxy

After his controversial art exhibition "Tear and Consume" back in November 2018, in which guests were invited to tear up his artworks Banksy-style, the talented artist Ernest Chang is back at it again. Presenting his latest collection of artworks, "Famous by Proxy" features a series of acrylic silkscreen canvases, screen prints, 3D pieces and neon lighting. Combining classic European paintings going as far back as the Renaissance with his love for comic book and manga characters, this exhibition is able to speak to the masses by fusing Western traditions with contemporary culture.

Ten Hours by Carol Bove

Expanding from her ongoing series of collage sculptures, Carol Bove's Ten Hours exhibition features a collection of square steel tubing works that has been crushed, manipulated, painted in vibrant colours and mixed with found pieces of scrap metal and/or highly polished steel disks. Making her first solo exhibition in Asia, Bove's artworks play with surface texture while pushing the limits of steel's physicality, rendering the material she uses with an almost fabric or clay-like finish.

The Other Side by Barry McGee

Presenting his first solo exhibition in the region, San Francisco-based artist Barry McGee's The Other Side exhibition features a brilliant selection of the artist's old and new artworks. Depicting various social issues and placing a strong emphasis on community through his distinctive and often humorous style, the exhibition allows its audience to fully immersive themselves in McGee's evocative and spontaneous world of creativity. Incorporating an eclectic selection of media – painted surfboards, hand-thrown ceramics, obsolete television sets – and found objects sourced during his stay in Hong Kong, this is one not to miss.
