What’s on this weekend…
If you haven’t been able to book yourself a weekend abroad this Easter, don’t despair girls, there’s still plenty to do in the 852 over the holidays! Art week is taking over (if you haven’t noticed) so be sure to immerse yourself in all that’s on offer, as well as let loose a little and have a tipple at these cool, club events. You deserve the break!
This week it’s all about the art! If you’ve already hit up Art Central and Art Basel, then make sure not to miss out on these two ‘must-see’ exhibitions in LKF over the next couple of days: Life is Beautiful, a solo exhibition by Mr. Brainwash, and Lies and Light, a solo exhibition by Javier Martin. Mr. Brainwash has become somewhat of a celebrity in recent years (thanks to the likes of Rita Ora letting him throw paint at her white dress during a performance) and we are so excited his solo exhibition is hitting HK. His work sold for five-figure sums at his self-financed debut exhibition opening, so we’re excited to check it out. While you’re in LKF, stop by the stunning solo pop-up show by artist Javier Martin, which showcases artwork spanning 10 years of his career for his first ever solo show in Asia. Lies and Light will feature works from Martin’s Blindness collection, which explores superficial perceptions of what is beautiful and valuable.
