Ben Brown Fine Arts is thrilled to participate in Art Basel Hong Kong 2018 (stand 3D14), presenting a curated selection of iconic works by gallery artists and twentieth-century masters. We will exhibit the work of cutting-edge contemporary artists such as Awol Erizku, José Parlá and Hank Willis Thomas alongside historically significant works of Alighiero Boetti, Lucio Fontana and Heinz Mack. We are also excited to participate in the Kabinett sector of Art Basel Hong Kong, devoting a section of our booth to the work of legendary Hong Kong artist Hon Chi Fun. In addition to the aforementioned artists, we will also be exhibiting important works by Miquel Barceló, Tony Bevan, Candida Höfer, Vik Muniz and Nabil Nahas.
In the meantime, Ben Brown Fine Arts and Timothy Taylor are co-presenting the exhibition Sean Scully: Standing on the Edge of the World, the artist's first solo exhibition in Hong Kong, on view until 29 April 2018. Born in Dublin, Ireland, in 1945, Scully spent most of his childhood and adolescence in south London. He enrolled at Croydon College of Art, and it was here that he first encountered Abstract Expressionism and Op Art. Scully abandoned his early figurative work, and in the late 1960s and early 1970s, began formulating his own abstract language, based on the grid.
For his first exhibition in Asia, Hank Willis Thomas presents Ernest and Ruth and Truth Bubble Sign Tree, two public sculptures which emphasize the themes of history, politics, identity and popular culture that underlie his overall conceptually based practice which spans photography, installation, and sculpture, at The Harbour Arts Sculpture Park until 11 April 2018. His practice seeks to further explore the commodification of identity through advertisements and remind viewers that cultural tropes continue to shape the notions of race.
