Gagosian Gallery Hong Kong will present an exciting roster of leading international artists and artist estates to a diverse Asian audience. The program begins with “Forgotten Promises,” a major exhibition of recent paintings and sculptures by British artist Damien Hirst.
The gallery is located in the historic Pedder Building on Pedder Street in the heart of Hong Kong’s Central district. Built in 1923, the elegant stone building is the last surviving pre-war building on the street, an iconic reminder of Hong Kong’s graceful colonial past. The flexible, light-filled galleries, designed by Caruso St John -- the London-based architectural firm that has designed several other Gagosian galleries around the world -- occupy 480 square meters.
Opened in 1979 in Los Angeles by Larry Gagosian, Gagosian Gallery is one of the world's foremost modern and contemporary art galleries. With the addition of the Hong Kong gallery, there are now eleven galleries worldwide in New York, Beverly Hills, London, Rome, Athens, Paris, and most recently, Geneva.
