A group of artists working in a variety of media challenge the relationship between art and everyday life by incorporating nontraditional subjects, formats, and ideas into the composition and experience of their works.

Several of the featured artists were among the first to exhibit with David Zwirner, where some of them debuted at the gallery’s original location at 43 Greene Street, New York, which opened its doors in 1993.

Until July 31. 5–6/F, H Queen’s, 80 Queen’s Road Central, Central, Hong Kong.

American abstract artist Jack Whitten is celebrated for the innovative methods he used to apply paint to canvas and for the persistent tension in his photographs between abstraction and figuration.

The first ever two-person exhibition between Adam Pendleton, an internationally renowned American artist, and Sir David Adjaye OBE, a Ghanaian-British artist and architect. 

The two artists first met in 2016 at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver, Colorado. In the following years, their continued dialogue revealed a mutual interest in the politics of space and representation, as well as the relationship between art and architecture. This exhibition comes at an important juncture in both artists’ careers.

Until June 30. 12/F, H Queen’s, 80 Queen’s Road Central, Central, Hong Kong.

Renowned Chinese contemporary artist Pang Maokun has created a series of figure paintings and portraits highlighting individuals in front of mirrors. Most of the canvases feature the artist’s family, friends, and colleagues as subjects. Instead of detailing the background, Pang directs the viewers’ attention to the psychological and spiritual states of the figures through their realistic expressions and gestures.

Until June 19. 10/F, H Queen’s, 80 Queen’s Road Central, Central, Hong Kong.

As part of the exhibition, a public program organized with Hong Kong-based curator Inti Guerrero will introduce and explore the themes and languages held within Moffett’s works.
