Asia Society in Hong Kong May Events

In celebration of the first Hong Kong edition of Art Basel, Asia Society in Hong Kong will open exhibition Light before Dawn: Unofficial Chinese Art 1974 - 1985 on 15 May 2013, showcasing an impressive spectrum of more than one hundred works by China's most influential contemporaryartists. This show will continue till 1 September 2013. On 20 May 2013, Asia Society's Inaugural Art Gala will gather major art collectors from the region, artists, galleries and dignitaries from the art world to honour Lee Ufan, Nyoman Masriadi and Zeng Fanzhi fortheir significant contributions to Asia contemporary art. We particularly look forward to the documentary screening of Hometown Boy on 24 May, which recounts the visit of acclaimed contemporary Chinese artist Liu Xiaodong to his hometown of Jincheng. We also recommend attending one of their evening or lunch discussions throughout the month.
