'Sites Encountered': A Chorus of Five Artists at M+ Pavilion Ocula Report 'Sites Encountered': A Chorus of Five Artists at M+ Pavilion 21 Jun 2019 : Emily Verla Bovino for Ocula

Without punctuation, She Said Why Me, the title of May Fung's 1989 video presents itself as a statement, rather than a question.

Review: 'Homeland' at Simon Lee Gallery Related Press Review: 'Homeland' at Simon Lee Gallery TimeOut Hong Kong : 21 June 2015

‘The very ink with which all history is written is merely fluid prejudice’, Mark Twain once wrote. There are few for whom this is truer than the group of artists exhibiting at Simon Lee Gallery. At first glance, the works of Glenn Brown, Dexter Dalwood, Ged Quinn and Toby Ziegler appear to have little in common, bar the fact that they...
