The first of White Cube’s galleries to be located outside of the UK, White Cube Hong Kong is situated at 50 Connaught Road, in the heart of Hong Kong’s Central district. Since its inception in March 2012, the gallery has hosted a varied programme of exhibitions including Gilbert & George, Anselm Kiefer, Damien Hirst and Cerith Wyn Evans. The gallery provides an interior exhibition space of 550 m2 (6000 sq ft) which is set over two floors and has a ceiling height of over 4.5 metres. The building was designed by London based architects Maybank and Matthews.
‘Surrealism was a movement that idealised the perceived feminine qualities, but at the same time…we can see that gender politics seems to have been a bit of a blind-spot in the movement.’
Curator Susanna Greeves discusses the works of over 50 women artists in #DreamersAwake at #WhiteCube Bermondsey, on until 17 September. Watch the video in full at whitecube.com/channel
“One of the staggeringly beautiful things about art generally, by my reckoning, is that it offers artists a means to create a space for themselves to exist in the world.” Happy birthday to White Cube artist #EddiePeake!
