Summer Newsletter | Ben Brown Fine Arts


Dear Friends,

 

I am writing to wish you a wonderful summer and to let you know about our upcoming exhibitions, art fairs and artist news.

 

We are thrilled to announce The Beautiful Game, Hank Willis Thomas' highly anticipated first solo exhibition at the London gallery. The private view will take place on Wednesday, 4th October. For those of you in London, you can get a sneak peek of one of his works in Regent's Park, where Hank's Endless Column (22 Totems) is currently installed in the Frieze Sculpture Park. Alighiero Boetti: Works on Paper 1967-1983 will continue throughout the summer until 20th September. Click here to view the e-catalogue.

 

Please note that the Hong Kong gallery will be closed for renovation throughout August, but will re-open in September with Hyon Gyon: Cruel World. The private view for the artist's first solo exhibition will be held at 303 Pedder Building on Wednesday, 20th September.

 

This October, Ben Brown Fine Arts will be participating for the fourth consecutive year at Frieze Masters in Regent's Park. Curated by Heinz Mack, we will be presenting important works from the ZERO period by Mack, Piene, Uecker, Castellani, Richter and Fontana (stand B13). We will be sending out a comprehensive fair preview nearer the time and hope you are able to come see it in person.

 

Please note the London gallery will be closed for two weeks from Saturday, 12th August and will reopen on Tuesday, 29th August.

 

We look forward to seeing you soon.

 

Best wishes,

 

Ben Brown

HYON GYON: 'Cruel World'

20 September - 9 November 2017

We are pleased to present the first solo exhibition of artist Hyon Gyon at our Hong Kong gallery. Gyon's paintings and sculptures teem with a raw and fervent energy, as she incorporates materials such as melted fabric, gold leaf, encaustic, spray paint, hair and found objects into her work. Gyon addresses cultural identity, sexual politics, grief, catharsis and ecstasy in her highly expressive and often autobiographical body of work.
