JPS Art Gallery is pleased to present a joint solo exhibition, Is Truth Real? and Yesterday Once More, by rising Hong Kong artist Chino Lam. On view at the gallery’s location in LANDMARK ATRIUM, marking the artist’s first-ever solo show in Hong Kong. The two exhibitions are shown in tandem in JPS Art Gallery and JPS Art Store, presenting the diversity of Lam’s artistic oeuvre.

Is Truth Real?, presented by JPS Art Gallery, features a new group of paintings that probes the relationship between the audience and the mass media. We are living under the age of information overload, from reading the news to managing status update on our social media platforms, we are consuming information 24/7. However, have we ever considered the power of mass media in our daily lives? In this group of works, Lam draws our attention to the influence of media and how we perceive new information. All the works presented in this exhibition are the artist’s reimagination of some of the most iconic cover stories in media history, including Life Magazine’s Moon Landing special edition single issue in 1969. Recalling the main theme, the works are also all uniquely framed with acrylic cases, mimicking the plastic cover packaging that is normally spotted in the rare magazines.

Lam incessantly probed the shifting boundaries between fine art, street art, and design, and is no doubt an artist that is gaining momentum in the local and international market. With its innovative and neoteric works, the joint exhibition is a manifesto of Lam’s perspicacious presentation of fine art and popular culture.
