Art’s relationship with branding sees a new incarnation with the Hugo Boss Asia Art Award, produced in collaboration with the Rockbund Art Museum in Shanghai and in this first instance addressing itself to artists from what is termed the “Greater China” region. The Hugo Boss Asia Art Award creates a new geographical focus for the fashion brand, running in parallel with the original “Hugo Boss Prize” which began in 1996. The seven short-listed artists for this award have already developed... [more]

Lee Kit’s How to set up a room for Johnny is staggeringly beautiful. Entering a space that constitutes one third of the cavernous factory-building gallery the visitor encounters first simply the title of the exhibition, pasted on the wall and illuminated by a bare fluorescent tube, the actual content of the project visible only in the far corner of the space, well lit but positioned on the wrong side of a dark stretch of empty floor. Walking across the distance we find that the artist has... [more]

The collection is S.M.A.K.’s DNA and reflects the museum’s core identity as the pivot between recent art history and current trends. S.M.A.K.’s acquisition policy has developed organically over the years and has three distinct levels. Firstly, the museum strives to form an ensemble around the oeuvre of a select group of artists. Instead of representing an artist with just a single work, S.M.A.K. aims to collect an oeuvre in depth in order to present it in all its complexity. Secondly, there is... [more]
At it Again   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8

In his fifth major solo exhibition in two years, Lee Kit demonstrates his ability to think not only in terms of projects and series of work but also through the apparatus of the body of work--an agglomeration of practice similar in scale but evidently distinct in quality from the exhibition, connecting multiple styles and series through a thematic or perceptual axis of experience. Working at an almost superhuman rate of studio production, he has recently consolidated one of his many... [more]

        This project sets out with the best of intentions: on the occasion of the retirement of Lui Chun Kwong, a highly influential professor of painting at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, a number of his students have been invited to work through his contributions to local art. As an exhibition, however, is an utter disaster. The sprawling gallery space is packed to the brim with often barely conceived and poorly wrought installations and paintings from some 50 artists, not counting... [more]
One of the core members of the cluster of artist studios at Fotan, an agglomeration of several dozen industrial buildings in the New Territories of Hong Kong, Lee Kit has developed art objects and an artistic practice based on his own style of life. Over the past ten years, his series of hand-painted pieces of cloth has become an icon of the Hong Kong art scene: beginning with monochrome sheets of linen and other fabrics, he applies stripes, plaids, hatching, or other patterns to create...

  The first thing to know about "The Burden of Representation" is that it is not, in fact, concerned with abstraction in Asia today. According to curator Eugene Tan, it is instead "about" painting, surveying the limit case of pictorial abstraction as a metonymic model for the medium as a whole. This is important because the announcement of the artist list under the banner of abstraction caused much wailing and gnashing of teeth within the Chinese art community; only after the opening did the...
