Photographs by the legendary Irving Penn will be exhibited for the first time in Hong Kong at Pace Gallery.
The exhibition will feature 30 photographs and, making their debut in Asia, two mixed-media paintings by the artist. The exhibition will open from January 25 to March 7.
From the organizer:
Pace Gallery is honoured to present the first solo exhibition in Hong Kong dedicated to internationally-renowned artist Irving Penn, on view at Pace’s H Queen’s gallery from January 25 – March 7, 2019. Featuring thirty photographs drawn from the collection of The Irving Penn Foundation, the exhibition will showcase a selection of the artist’s most iconic works in fashion photography, portraiture, nudes, and still life from four decades of his career. In addition to Penn’s photographs, the show will feature two of the artist’s mixed-media paintings, also drawn from the Foundation’s collection. Making their premiere in Asia following a debut exhibition at Pace in New York in fall 2018, these late paintings reveal the artist’s largely-unknown experimentation in the medium. An opening reception for the exhibition will be held at 80 Queen's Road Central, 12/F from 6 to 8 PM on Thursday, January 24.
