We've handpicked some art exhibitions and events to check out this February. Read on to discover more.


HKARTS: Playing it Straight

Shameless plug of our amazing exhibition that we are beyond excited to share with you. HKARTS is incredibly excited to finally be able to give you “Playing it Straight”, an exhibition they’ve been trying to put on since 2020 (thank you covid). This exciting experimental photography project by Shawn P Griffin and Leslie Montgomery looks at society’s attitude to sexual minorities in Hong Kong. By switching the roles of sexual majorities and minorities, the exhibition invites viewers to be part of the project and reflect upon their own attitude and perception towards relationships in modern society.


In this thematic project an assortment of indivuals with different sexualities including; self-idetified heterosexual, homosexual and bisexual were asked to take part in an experiential performance that would be photographed. By documenting this interaction the aim is to direct attention to the general public about sexual minorities in today’s society.

Square Street: The Giant's Foot Scrubber


Square Street brings together works by Gianluca Crudele, Alice Dos Reis, Chan Ka Kiu, Sissi Kaplan and Andrew Luk for their exhibition "The Giant's Foot Scrubber". This exhibition is an invitation to think through these questions in relation to the suspension of disbelief, the occult and landscape. Within the wall of the gallery are works that ask you to speculate stories that could arise from the crevices of our surroundings: what works of can be built from the observation of the seemingly small and mundane?

WOAW Gallery: Fluid Maze


WOAW Gallery is proud to present “Fluid Maze”, a group exhibition showcasing the works of eight distinguished local artists – Hector Chan, IV Chan, Dony Cheng, SSAN Hui, Mandy Lau, Florence Lee, Wong Ka Ying, and Wu Jiaru – as they experiment with different mediums to question the meaning of “seeing”. Whether they live or grew up in Hong Kong, the artists are all connected by the city. The essence of Hong Kong is embedded in their works as they each weave their individual experiences, forming a maze of their consciousness in an interplay between each artwork and the bigger picture. The group exhibition “Fluid Maze” will be on view on February 6 – March 13, 2024, at the gallery’s Wan Chai location. 


When: 6th February - 13th March 2024

Contemporary by Angela Li: Flourishing City Spectacles


Contemporary by Angela Li proudly presents solo exhibition of Fatina Kong titled "Flourishing cityspectacles", featuring her latest series of paintings. The exhibition reception will be held from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, 1 February,2024, with the artist present. The exhibition will run until 2 March, 2024. 


In this exhibition, Fatina Kong's artworks undergo a transition from cityscapes and landscapes to capturing the intricate veins found in nature. Viewers can easily recognise the interplay between reality and abstract elements within her paintings. Kong's innovative narrative approach arises from flower stems, leaf veins, and stone traces, which possess natural qualities reminiscent of the cyclic rotation processes in nature. While humans are not involved in these natural occurrences, we may observe the distinct marks they leave. 


Kong's brushstrokes delicately intertwine, like silk threads, and her paintings have overlapping layers that create a sense of depth and dimension. The artist meticulously layers her works, resulting in paintings that evoke the way reflections appear on the surfaces of water or a mirror. Additionally, the circular shapes of her artworks symbolise the cyclical nature of time.  


Kong believes that nature's evolution is beyond human influence. Time, despite being an abstract concept, embodies profound beliefs that surpass our conventional understanding of reality. The abundance of flowers and trees symbolises different stages in time. While it is impossible for us to physically travel back in time and witness the emergence of a seedling, Kong’s works possess the remarkable ability of capturing the lingering imprints left by the changing seasons.

Blindspot Gallery: Comfort Zone by Pixy Liao


Blindspot Gallery is pleased to present “Comfort Zone” by Pixy Liao, marking her debut solo exhibition at Blindspot Gallery. The exhibition features selected works recently created by Liao, encompassing photography, video, and ready-made sculpture.


Liao is known for carefully staged portraits of her and partner-collaborator Moro. Her works upend traditional representations of heterosexual relationships by inverting gender roles, often placing Moro as the subservient male muse and herself as the domineering artist-orchestrator. Tongue-in-cheek and imbued with a sense of humor, Liao’s work straddles between the performative and the autobiographical, unfurling her and Moro’s growing relationship.

During the opening reception on January 20, there will be an artist talk at 5 – 6 pm. The talk will be conducted in English.


When: 23rd January - 9th March 2024
