From the 15th to the 26th November, Galerie Huit in collaboration with Marlborough Fine Art, will present an exhibition at the Pao Galleries, Hong Kong Arts Centre – Bridging: Important Female Artists of Our Time – featuring four internationally recognized female artists. This group exhibition will showcase the works of British artist Maggi Hambling, Portugese artist Paula Rego and Chinese artists Yan Ping and Xiang Jing. Focusing primarily on feminist-inflected artworks, the exhibition looks to explore the breaking of gender boundaries and shows off female artists who have ignored the social norms and overcome the challenges set upon them.

As well addressing the issues of sexism against women in art, the exhibition also looks at the similarities between art from the east and the west and aims to establish a platform of international influence. From Hambling’s rolling waves to Jing’s breathtakingly realistic and chilling sculptures, many of the works in this exhibition are truly stunning and are definitely worth a visit!
