Hauser & Wirth Hong Kong in VR

On 26 March 2018, Hauser & Wirth opened its Hong Kong outpost – and first permanent gallery space in Asia – in the newly-developed H Queen’s complex in the Central district of Hong Kong.

 

 

 

The 10,000 sq ft gallery space extends over two full storeys – the 15th and 16th floors – of the purpose-built, stacked gallery building designed by William Lim of CL3. Annabelle Selldorf, who has worked closely with Hauser & Wirth since 1996 and has overseen the architectural renovation of six of the gallery’s exhibition spaces internationally, was appointed as architect for the project.

The inaugural exhibition presents new paintings by Los Angeles-based artist Mark Bradford. Bradford is one of the world’s most prominent and critically-acclaimed contemporary artists. His densely layered paintings and mixed media installations question America’s social landscape, politics and cultural history through a rigorous physical and material approach to the canvas.

In 2017, Bradford was the representative for the United States at La Biennale di Venezia 57th International Art Exhibition. He has been much celebrated for his recent solo exhibition, ‘Pickett’s Charge,’ a monumental commissioned cyclorama of paintings at the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C. At 400 linear feet of wall space, the work is Bradford’s largest site-specific work to date. In 2015, Bradford presented ‘Tears of a Tree’ at Rockbund Museum in Shanghai.
