Alice Neel at David Zwirner Hong Kong

Alice NeelMen from the SixtiesNov 17 – Dec 21, 2022 David Zwirner Hong Kong5-6/F, H Queen’s, 80 Queen’s Road Central, Central, Hong Kong+852 21195900Tuesday – Saturday, 11am – 7pm davidzwirner.com David Zwirner is pleased to present Alice Neel: Men from the Sixties at the gallery’s Hong Kong location. Widely regarded as one of the foremost American artists of the twentieth century, Neel (1900–1984) is known for her daringly honest, humanist approach to the figure. This focused presentation brings together a selection of significant paintings of men from the 1960s, a decisive decade in the development of the artist’s practice. In these years, her style evolved into the looser, more open compositions she would come to be known for in the later period of her career, while she also began to receive broader recognition for her work as an incisive artist and cultural figure. Ranging from depictions of men of personal or intellectual significance to Neel to those of anonymous individuals and acquaintances who interested her, the works on view present a nuanced examination of masculinity and attest to the …

Margeaux WilliamsonInside the White Cube: Margaux WilliamsonNov 18, 2022 – Jan 7, 2023 White Cube Hong Kong50 Connaught Road, Central Hong Kong+852 2592 2000Tuesday – Saturday, 11am – 7pm whitecube.com White Cube Hong Kong is pleased to announce an exhibition of new work by Canadian artist Margaux Williamson (b. 1979) – the artist’s first solo exhibition in Asia, in which she presents a new series of 20 paintings produced in the last year.  Always devoid of protagonists, the paintings depict domestic interior scenes, still lifes or patches of landscape close to the artist’s home. They are predominantly dark in tone, illuminated by strong artificial or directional light and executed in an earthy, sombre palette. ‘…for this series I felt a slight repulsion to daylight… and a strong pull to the ground or to the dark and to the glow of reflected light,’ Williamson has said. The rendering of her subject matter alternates between acute detail and abstract gestures, promoting a sense of something in flux or ungrounded.  Williamson builds her compositions from distinct, constituent parts, combined to form …

Samson Young at Kiang Malingue Hong Kong

Samson YoungMusic for selective hearing, or assisted livingSep 24 – Nov 5, 2022 Kiang Malingue13/F Blue Box Factory Building25 Hing Wo StreetAberdeen, Hong Kong+852 2810 0317By appointment kiangmalingue.comWeChat Kiang Malingue is pleased to present Samson Young’s first solo exhibition at the gallery’s Hong Kong space. Titled Music for selective hearing, or assisted living, this exhibition will feature five sets of artworks created by the artist in the last two years. Known for exploring the fabric of the socio-political by examining the history and contemporary conditions of sound and music, Young considers in the exhibition the complicated nature of ‘sound conditioning’ – the active control of ambient sounds, as exemplified by such devices as white-noise sleep aids – as self-care and recuperation, but also as self-imposed isolation, control, and wilful disengagement. Included in the exhibition is Samson Young’s collaboration with his long-time friend, violist William Lane. The installation Often easy, sometimes impossible (2021 – 2022) consists of a two-channel video, in which Lane performs Young’s original composition that was scored for a triangle, a viola, and a synthesised glass harmonica …

Featuring works made in the past two decades, the selection reflects the artist’s engagement with the everyday object and the aesthetic and cultural implications of methods of selection and display. Since the mid 1970s, Steinbach has made structures and devices for presenting various found objects, in particular employing a wedge-shaped shelf based on 40, 50 and 90 degree angles, constructed in several parts and finished with a coloured, plastic laminate. Working within the methodologies of presentation rather than representation, his art sets in train a nexus of associations, enabling multiple potential themes to emerge from the arrangement of these common objects. ‘I [see] my works as an engagement with the here and now, with the archaeology of what exists and what we all participate in,’ Steinbach states. In the ground floor gallery, a group of …
