This December, Sotheby’s is delighted to present “My Life Is Pointless,” a solo exhibition of iconic works by acclaimed artist Joan Cornellà. In collaboration with creative partner AllRightsReserved, the exhibition will feature 48 works by Cornellà, making it the biggest solo exhibition of the artist ever in Hong Kong. It will run from 15 December 2020 to 29 January 2021 at Sotheby’s Hong Kong Gallery.

“My Life Is Pointless” is Cornellà’s third solo exhibition in Hong Kong and marks his return to the city after three years, showcasing for the first time the artist’s latest life-sized panels, shaped panel paintings, and bronze sculptures, as well as a selection of limited print works which will not be released again.

With nearly eight million followers on social media, Cornellà is highly regarded on the international stage and his works have been exhibited globally, from Hong Kong, Tokyo, Seoul, and Beijing to London, Paris and New York. With a simplistic visual language and cheerful palette, Cornellà uses satire to comment on the bleak side of human nature, creating works that are honest, entertaining and stimulating. In 2020, the artist’s well-established style has evolved to combine text and imagery as he continues to explore the possibilities and universal resonance of his signature brand of humour.

Following the Hong Kong Government’s guidelines on social distancing, Sotheby’s is able to accommodate visitors by appointment only. To schedule an appointment to view the exhibition, please click here. You can read more about Sotheby’s safety requirements here.
