Kader Attia at Lehmann Maupin, Hong Kong

Héroes Heridos November 1 – December 22 Lehmann Maupin will present Kader Attia’s first exhibition in Hong Kong, showcasing recent works on canvas, collage, sculpture, and his film Héroes Heridos (2018), which debuted at the Miró Foundation in Barcelona this summer. In 2017, Attia was awarded the prestigious Joan Miró Prize, preceding his exhibition Scars Remind Us that Our Past Is Real at the foundation. That exhibition, along with this one at Lehmann Maupin, both embody Attia’s career-spanning examination of the notion of repair as a global, cultural phenomenon in response to historic, collective trauma. There will be an opening reception on Thursday, November 1, at the Pedder Building, from 6 to 8pm. 407 Pedder Building 12 Pedder Street, Central T (852) 2530 0025 Tu-Fr 10am to 7pm, Sa 11am to 7pm Image: Mirrors by Kader Attia, Canvas and thread, 30.2 x 24.1 cm, 2014.
