Lucie Chang Fine Arts is pleased to announce the opening of KILLED OR BE KILLED: Duo Exhibition of WANTO x NECKFACE, at Lucie Chang Fine Arts.

ESCAPE VELOCITY

by Leo Villareal

Date: 20 July, 2018 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Pace Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by New York-based light artist Leo Villareal. Installed in Pace’s recently-opened gallery in Hong Kong’s new H Queen’s Building, ESCAPE VELOCITY will be the artist’s first solo exhibition in Asia and his second exhibition with Pace since joining the gallery in 2016.

ESCAPE VELOCITY will be on view July 20 through September 7, 2018, at 12F, H Queen's, with a special opening reception for the artist on Friday, July 20 from 6 – 8 pm. The ex... Read more
