3 exhibitions you need to check out this March by Amber Smith
Hong Kong Art Basel is approaching and many of the most famous artists in the world are coming to our city for an event full of art and champagne, but don’t worry! You don’t have to be good at name-dropping or having pretentious conversations with curators to enjoy art. After all, it’s all about letting yourself be absorbed by masterpieces and have your own unique experience. Here are my three tips for the most interesting art in March!
19 Local and International Artists –
Harbour Arts Sculpture Park aka Tarmar Park
22 February to 11 April 2018
Are you also happy that the spring ﬁnally has arrived with sunny days, short, sexy dresses and sandals? Now you can have a lovely walk by the harbour front and experience grasping art at the same time! The Hong Kong Jockey Club has organised Hong Kong’s largest open-air gallery of monumental public art to date in Tamar Park. What do you say about seeing Antony Gormley, Tracey Emin, Yayoi Kusama and many more while walking by the seaside touched by warm sun rays and gentle breezes?
Izumi Kato Perrotin –
19 January to 17 March
Japanese painter and sculptor Izumi Kato has his second solo exhibition at gallery Perrotin. Kato makes sculptures out of found objects and turns them into something odd and absurd. This art is almost alien-like and you have to check it out if you ever have been interested in sculpture or sci-ﬁ or beauty or… yeah life!
Samson Young: Songs for Disaster Relief World Tour –
M+ Pavilion, West Kowloon Cultural District
9 February to 6 May
Are you looking for a sensation overload? Then you have to see “Songs for Disaster Relief World Tour” by Samson Young that represented at the 57th International Art Exhibition at the Venice Biennale 2017. A series of sculptures, videos, sound installations and site-speciﬁc pieces, offers a unique audiovisual experience. Young explores relationships between the past and present for a spectacular examination of social, political, and philosophical implications in a cross-cultural context. The exhibition is accompanied by a series of talks, guided tours, and live performances!
