Galerie Ora-Ora to Present First Exhibition in New H Queen’s Space in March & Launches 2018 Programme
Galerie Ora-Ora is proud to celebrate the opening of the new space in the H Queen’s building with an inaugural exhibition that explores the contrasts and harmonies of art and literature. The first exhibition kicks-off the gallery’s 2018 programme in the new venue that utilises the natural light of the 17th floor, and all the features of this purpose-built building for galleries.
Opening on March 1, Screaming Books, the literature-themed group exhibition features eight contemporary Chinese and Hong Kong artists including Halley Cheng, Hung Keung, Peng Jian, Peng Wei, Xiao Xu, Xu Lei, Zhang Yanzi together with an iconic calligraphy graffiti work by Tsang Tsou-Choi, the “King of Kowloon”. Influenced by ancient and classical literature famed in Chinese and Western references, the gallery’s first show for the year asserts the universality of art, exploring its aptitude for unfettered expression, emotions and meanings.
March will also see Galerie Ora-Ora’s sixth participation at Art Basel in Hong Kong, running concurrently with a second galley show presenting the illusions and imagination of Xiao Xu through a series of new paintings. Following the successful participations at Art Basel Hong Kong in the past, the gallery is returning to the fair for the sixth consecutive year. For the 2018 edition, Ora-Ora will present a themed exhibition, Leap to Light (ABHK Booth 3C31), aiming to channel the opposing forces of the modern world into a springboard for forward momentum.
