The current show is titled 'Ambiguously Yours: Gender in Hong Kong Popular Culture' and offers new insights into Hong Kong popular culture through representations of androgyny and gender fluidity in Cantopop, fashion, film, photography, and graphic design. Including more than ninety exhibits, among them Roman Tam’s iconic peacock costume, a film clip from Wong Kar-wai’s Chungking ExpressCity Magazine covers; and works by photographers such as Julian Lee and Wing Shya, Ambiguously Yours celebrates the creative experimentation and ongoing influence of the 1980s and 1990s, while further proposing a dynamic dialogue between popular culture and the fields of art, design, and moving image. The show's curator, Tina Pang, states that the exhibition presents a "fresh perspective on Hong Kong popular culture of the 1980s and 1990s by examining it as a platform for avant-garde experimentation in representations of gender identities. Focusing on androgyny, camp and gender fluidity, this exhibition presents the works of pioneers in costume design, music, film, and print media, further proposing the dynamic interplay between popular culture and the fields of art, design and moving image through the M+ collection."

The M+ Pavilion, which opened in September 2016, serves as the primary site for M+ exhibitions in the run-up to the completion of the M+ building. After M+ opens it will become a new space for artists, designers and organisations to stage independent small-scale
exhibitions and events in the Art Park. Image courtesy of M+

The launch of Zhao Zhao's book, 'Provocateur', with Flash Art Books. 

"This new title examines Zhao Zhao’s working practice, emblematic for art’s ability to address conflict—social, political, and aesthetic—in a world undergoing unprecedented upheaval. The artist has consistently positioned his art as a counterweight to systems of control that affect and regulate the lives of individuals in China; while his work’s increasingly global reach testifies to its profound resonance beyond his country’s borders. His deft use of a wide range of materials, combined with a tonal elusiveness that veers between the faintly ludic, the sardonic, and the unambiguously confrontational, justify his position as a crucial agent in contemporary cultural discourse." - Flash Art Books
