Located in the heart of the city, H Queen's is designed by CL3, the architecture and interior design firm owned by William Lim. Starting from late 2017, this building will become home to new locations of international galleries such as David Zwirner, Hauser & Wirth, PACE Gallery, Pearl Lam Galleries, Whitestone Gallery, Tang Contemporary Art, Galerie Ora-Ora and auction house Seoul Auction. Find out more about the expansion of mega-galleries to this new art hub in Hong Kong's Central District!

Even before galleries settled into the H Queen's building itself, the 24-storey development by Henderson Land has been the venue for several art exhibitions and events. One of the earliest public art projects was 'Time and Scale: 10 Hong Kong Artists at HQ' alongside the event 'The HQ Art Bar' in 2016. Meanwhile in early 2017, a large-scale digital art installation "Voyages" on the façade of H Queen's showcased video works by renowned artists to passersby. Half a year later, the preview exhibition of Para Site 2017 Fundraising Auction was held on the ground floor of the art hub, featuring lots for online bidding in support of this Hong Kong-based art institution. In the same venue, the UOB Art in Ink Award Exhibition in late 2017 displayed eighteen winning entries. These events set the stage for upcoming gallery launches.

Tang Contemporary Art, one of the first galleries to move into the building, opened with an inaugural show entitled 'Hong Kong Foot.' The new space on the tenth floor presented works by Chinese artists Huang Yongping and Shen Yuan, which were specifically made for Hong Kong. The gallery was established two decades ago in Bangkok, and has subsequently expanded to Beijing and Hong Kong. The exhibition was on view from December 20th to January 27th 2018.

"Yellow Umbrella/Parasol" (2017) by Shen Yuan, Wood, iron, cloth, plastic and paper. 1184 x 280 x 150 cm. Image courtesy of the artist and Tang Contemporary Art.

This was shortly followed by the grand opening of David Zwirner's Hong Kong exhibition 'Fire from the Sun' of Belgian artist Michaël Borremans on January 27th 2018. His oil paintings were displayed across the fifth and sixth floors of H Queen's. On view until March 10th 2018, the move to Hong Kong's new art hub consolidates the gallery's presence in Asia, in addition to its current locations in New York and London. The Hong Kong outpost of the gallery will be co-directed by Leo Xu and Jennifer Yum, who are no strangers to the art scene in Asia.

Two months later, Galerie Ora-Ora's inaugural exhibition 'Screaming Books' will open on March 1st 2018 on the seventeenth floor at H Queen's. The show will feature eight contemporary Chinese and Hong Kong artists. They are Halley Cheng, Hung Keung, Peng Jian, Pang Wei, Tsang Tsou-Choi a.k.a. "King of Kowloon", Xiao Xu, Xu Lei, and Zhang Yanzi.

What's more, to coincide with Art Basel Hong Kong 2018, Pace Gallery and Hauser & Wirth will open their new spaces at H Queen's on March 26th 2018, while on the same day, Galerie Ora-Ora will present the solo show of Chinese artist Xiao Xu until May 12th. At its 10th anniversary in Asia, Pace will showcase Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara's art on the twelth floor of H Queen's. Simutaneously, Hauser and Wirth will bring to the Hong Kong audience works by Los Angeles-based artist Mark Bradford across two storeys on the fifteenth and sixteenth floor of H Queen's. The new Hong Kong location will be co-directed by Vanessa Guo and Lihsin Tsai.
