  • Empty Gallery Hong Kong Little Steps Asia

    EMPTY GALLERY: Unique Black Space Gallery In Tin Wan, Hong Kong

During meditation, he imagined the gallery where he saw a black space capable of housing multi-sensory art akin to an inner journey through one's senses. You can expect to see pioneering multimedia commissions, performances, music, or an otherworldly blend from emerging or already established artists. The first exhibition is from Yutaka Matsuzawa entitled Vanishing in the Wilderness. The collection is co-curated by Alan Longino and Reiko Tomii with generous assistance from Matsuzawa’s family. Yutaka Matsuzawa was a pioneer conceptual artist. He was active from the 1950s through to his death in 2006.
