Where: Edouard Malingue Gallery, 6/F, 33 Des Voeux Road, Central, Hong Kong

Five Artists: Sites Encountered

At the M+ Pavilion, five female artists hailing from different generations, histories and geographies are brought together in this exhibition to reconsider the idea of site and place. Sculptures, films and installations will be shown by Lara Almarcegui, May Fung, Lee Bul, Ana Mendieta and Charlotte Posenenske, stimulating conversation on how we think of sites, relationships with our surroundings and a back-and-forth between the exhibition space and the construction of its larger neighbour, the nearly-completed M+.

There will be a free shuttle bus from Kowloon MTR Station (exit A) on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays throughout the exhibition period.

When: From Friday, 7 June until Sunday, October 20; 11am to 6pm (gallery closed Mondays and Tuesdays)
