Gagosian Hong Kong is pleased to announce the first-ever exhibition in Hong Kong dedicated to artwork by contemporary Indigenous Australian artists. It is the third in a series of critically acclaimed exhibitions presented by the gallery, following New York and Los Angeles in 2019. “Desert Painters of Australia: Two Generations” is organised in collaboration with D’Lan Davidson, a leading Melbourne-based consultant in the Indigenous Australian art market.

“Desert Painters of Australia: Two Generations” is designed to introduce the local audience for the first time to rare works by some of Australia’s most renowned Indigenous artists from remote regions of the continent. The intergenerational selection includes the late Emily Kame Kngwarreye, Makinti Napanangka, and Bill “Whiskey” Tjapaltjarri, and living artists such as Yukultji Napangati, George Tjungurrayi, and Warlimpirrnga Tjapaltjarri.
