Opening: Thursday, Jan 16, 6 – 8pm
The gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of recent works by Chuck Close. Featuring oil painting, mosaic and tapestry, the works foreground Close’s radical exploration of media, and reflect the artist’s ability to push technique and the language of colour in ways that challenge and alter the viewer’s perception.
The first of White Cube’s galleries to be located outside of the UK, White Cube Hong Kong is situated at 50 Connaught Road, in the heart of Hong Kong’s Central district. Since its inception in March 2012, the gallery has hosted a varied programme of exhibitions including Gilbert & George, Anselm Kiefer, Damien Hirst and Cerith Wyn Evans. The gallery provides an interior exhibition space of 550 m2 (6000 sq ft) which is set over two floors and has a ceiling height of over 4.5 metres. The building was designed by London based architects Maybank and Matthews.
