Amir H. Fallah in “What’s Showing in Hong Kong” by Art Asia Pacific

May 24, 2022
What’s Showing in Hong Kong, May 2022: Southside, Wan Chai, Kowloon
BY THE EDITORS

Galleries in Wong Chuk Hang and the greater Southside district continue to mount some of the city’s most interesting exhibitions, from both international and local artists. An afternoon of exploring the area’s industrial buildings is a chance to see artists in greater depth in these shows compared with the setting of an art fair. Further destinations await in Wan Chai and Tsim Sha Tsui for original shows by artists new and familiar to the Hong Kong scene.

“Joy as an Act of Resistance” is a showcase of recent paintings by the Los Angeles-based painter Amir H. Fallah, whose new series riffs on the idea of “revenge shopping” and pandemic fatigue. Drawing on his Iranian heritage in his visual idiom—floral motifs and Persian miniature-esque compositions—Fallah juxtaposes the 21st century’s lush materialism with the unsettling currents of social unrest and environmental precarity.
