A busy week of art events and exhibitions is ahead June 15-21 in Hong Kong, featuring works by artists such as Tuan Andrew Nguyen, Richard Serra, Mao Yan, Lu Xinjian and many others. Here is Blouin Artinfo’s list of these must-visit art shows:
Catherine Opie’s “So long as they are wild” at Lehmann Maupin
Through July 7, 2018
The Los Angeles-based artist Catherine Opie’s debut solo in Hong Kong combines a recent series of photographs and a series of ceramic sculptures of tree stumps. The photographs were shot in Yosemite National Park in California, evoking the works of the photographer Ansel Adams, but Opie distorts the landscape cliches with odd compositions and angles that challenge photographic orthodoxy. Opie’s new ceramic sculptures of tree stumps address similar concerns about human perceptions of the natural world. Made from clay, these are the first sculptures the artist has created as tactical representations of the nature in her photographs.
