Introducing a novel convergence of Buddhism and British modern art from the southwestern fishing village of St Ives in Cornwall, 3812 Gallery Hong Kong presents a collection of post-war abstract works, with particular reference to the 1920s and 1930s.
From Hong Kong-born Bernard Leach to Buddhist scholar D.T. Suzuki, the little English town has served as an unlikely yet fascinating artist hub that gave way to multimedia art surrounding eastern philosophy. Exploring artistic discourse on the interweaving of East and West, the impact of war, and the influence of Buddhist thought, the exhibition runs until 31 May and is open on weekdays between the hours of 11 am to 7 pm.
Covering the hottest new eats, the best places to play, offbeat takes on local culture, and so much more, Localiiz is every Hongkonger’s destination for how to live a well-rounded life in our vibrant city. Why the strange spelling? Well, Localiiz is designed to be your “local eyes”—and for that, you need two i’s.
