Asia Society Hong Kong is honored to present A Story of Light, an exhibition of the groundbreaking Hong Kong artist Hon Chi-fun (1922–2019). A postal inspector by trade, Hon was a self-taught artist who rose to prominence in the 1960s with his radical artistic experiments that combined international influences as a response to Hong Kong’s multi-cultural context. A Story of Light re-contextualizes the evolution of Hon Chi-fun’s practice by contrasting his continual fascination with light as both a material and subject with his deployment of various media and cultural influences. The exhibition presents over thirty artworks spanning four decades of his trailblazing practices in painting, printmaking, and photography.
Art Logistics Partner:
Asia Society Hong Kong Center is honored to present Yukaloo (2011) by James Turrell, marking the artist’s first installation at an institution in Hong Kong. James Turrell (b. 1943, Los Angeles) is a leading American artist who uses light as a medium for his immersive installations. Associated with the Light and Space movement of the 1960s, Turrell has dedicated his practice to what he has deemed perceptual art, investigating the materiality of light and the sensorial experience of space, color, and perception.
