New Art Galleries To Visit Now
Denny Dimin Gallery
Denny Dimin Gallery was founded by Elizabeth Denny in New York in 2013, starting as an art space on the Lower East Side before moving to Tribeca six years later. After almost two years of delay, its Hong Kong offshoot opened at last in Wong Chuk Hang at the end of January.
The gallery launched with the group exhibition Lunarian, which featured four international artists (Damien H Ding, Natalie Baxter, Lau Wai and Paula Wilson) and demonstrates Denny Dimin’s incredible roster of contemporary artists and conceptual works.
For example, Baxter explores gender identity through every textile imaginable (fabric, jeans, quilts, T-shirts and even hospital receiving blankets), while Lau Wai’s video work plays with nostalgia, looking at old Hollywood depictions of Asian characters “alongside the uncomfortable realities of how they embody offensive stereotypes”. It’s a welcome addition to the neighbourhood.
Upcoming: Joy As An Act Of Resistance, a solo exhibition by Amir H. Fallah, from 19 March to 14 May.
