David Zwirner Gallery, Hong Kong will open to the public on January 27, 2018, with an inaugural exhibition of new paintings by Belgian artist Michaël Borremans.
The gallery’s first outpost in Asia will occupy 10,000 square feet on the fifth and sixth floors of H Queen’s (HQ)—the new gallery and lifestyle tower in Hong Kong’s Central district, designed by William Lim of CL3 Architects. Annabelle Selldorf, who designed David Zwirner’s New York and London locations, has overseen the interior architecture.
David Zwirner Hong Kong will be led by Leo Xu, formerly of Leo Xu Projects in Shanghai, and Jennifer Yum, the former Vice President and Head of Morning Day Sales in the Post-War and Contemporary Art department at Christie’s New York.
The gallery’s inaugural exhibition “Michaël Borremans: Fire from the Sun” will be the artist’s first solo exhibition in Hong Kong and will be accompanied by a catalogue published by David Zwirner Books with a new essay by British art critic, curator, and cultural historian Michael Bracewell.
