03/03/2012 14:31:11

Britain's White Cube gallery launched its Hong Kong branch on Thursday, becoming the latest Western gallery to open an Asian outpost in pursuit of China's booming art market.

White Cube Hong Kong, located at 50 Connaught Road, in the heart of Hong Kong’s Central district, provides over 550 m² (6000 sqft) of interior space over two floors, including a gallery height of over 4.5 meters. Designed by the London based architects Maybank and Matthews Architects, this is the first of White Cube’s galleries to be located outside of the UK.

White Cube Hong Kong is proud to present its inaugural exhibition of 'LONDON PICTURES' by Gilbert & George. This monumental body of 292 pictures is the largest series yet created by the acclaimed British artists. 22 pictures will be shown in Hong Kong which will be the first venue on a global tour. In these new ‘LONDON PICTURES’ (2011) Gilbert & George present an epic survey of modern urban life in all its volatility, tragedy, absurdity and routine violence.
