For Lehmann Maupin’s first exhibition since the re-opening of Hong Kong, and following the global onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the gallery is thrilled to present work by Heidi Bucher, Catherine Opie, Suh Se Ok, and Angel Otero. In light of the recent self-isolation measures taken across the globe, this exhibition, titled be/longing, examines the myriad ways each artist has dealt with feelings of alienation stemming from gender and sexual orientation discrimination, the longing for family and home, and feeling distance from a community. The title’s play on words evokes the human need to feel a sense of belonging as well as the universal longing for companionship and connection in moments of isolation.
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.
