Serpentine Pavilion & Grayson Perry's exhibition 2017

Posted on July 9, 2017 by Toothpicker

 
 
This year's Serpentine pavilion is designed by Diébédo Francis Kéré, the Berlin-based African architect from Gando, Burkina Faso.

"Typography and the sea of words" exhibition at CACHe HK

Posted on April 15, 2017 by Toothpicker

 
The building and courtyard of CACHe on Western Street, Sai Yun Pun
 
In recent years, an influx of international art galleries and art fairs has somehow transformed Hong Kong – the infamous cultural desert – into Asia's glossy art hub. To be honest, I am not sure if this has had much [...]

Transcending Boundaries by teamlab
 
Is contemporary Asian art gaining more recognition in the West today? Apparently so. Interestingly, three prominent contemporary art galleries in London held exhibitions on three very different Asian artists/collective around the same period, and one of the most talked about exhibition must have been the immersive "Transcending [...]

‘Metropolis' (1988) by Zaha Hadid at the entrance of the exhibition at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery

 
I have previously written about the late British Iraqi star architect Zaha Hadid (click here), and I showed little enthusiasm about her later works. However, I was a fan of her earlier paintings – the conceptual ones [...]

Matt Mullican: The Sequence of Things at Camden Arts Centre
 
I am not a fan of mega blockbuster art exhibitions, often I find them over-hyped and mentally exhausting. There are some smaller and out-of-the-centre art centres/galleries that I love visiting and Camden Arts Centre (in Hampstead) is one of them.
Recently, I went to [...]

Fluorescent Chrysanthemum at ICA

Posted on November 29, 2016 by Toothpicker

Martin Luther King Jr. and Senator Robert F. Kennedy were assassinated; Apollo 8 and three US astronauts orbited the moon; 800,000 students, teachers and [...]

Jeff Koons at Newport Street Gallery

Posted on October 16, 2016 by Toothpicker

 
Ok, I am not a fan of Jeff Koons nor Damien Hirst, so what was I doing at Hirst's art gallery for Koons' Now exhibition? One reason: architecture. This month, Newport Street Gallery in Vauxhall was named as the winner of this year’s Royal Institute of British Architects (Riba) Stirling Prize for [...]
