2/3 The Blazing World: Li Ning and Stanley Shum
In this exhibition, emerging local artists Li Ning and Stanley Shum present their paintings of scenes both real and imaginary. Li takes inspiration from his personal life and experience as a tattoo artist to create his art, while Shum observes the people around him in order to create portraits and abstract works that comment on modern society.

3/3 Mai-Thu Perret: News From Nowhere
For her second exhibition at Simon Lee Gallery in Hong Kong, Swiss artist Mai-Thu Perret presents installation works, ceramics, sculptures, textiles and performances that reference William Morris’ 1890 scifi novel of the same name, in which he imagines a utopian socialist society. Other sources of inspiration range from the Dadaist movement to Brazilian and Japanese architecture.
