White Cube and Galerie Perrotin

Last week, escaping from the boring process of looking for jobs, I went to White Cube and Galerie Perrotin located in 50 Connaught Road to see their latest exhibitions. White Cube chose Hong Kong as a place to open their first gallery in Asia. I haven't been to their space in London, so I am curious about how their space in Hong Kong looks like. They are now showing Cerith Wyn Evans's "Grace to be born and live as variously as possible...". I love the title of the show. It provides much room for imagination. But the artworks are not really provoking.

The reason that I went to Galerie Perrotin was because of JR. He finally brought Inside Out Project to Hong Kong. 16 large-scale black and white portraits are visible from the gallery which on the 17th floor of 50 Connaught Road. JR also set up a photo booth inside the gallery. Visitors can make their own portraits and get printed posters afterwards. He believes that art can make changes to the society. I think this is why art needs to exist.
