As a leading international gallery of modern and contemporary work, Hauser & Wirth does not disappoint, hosting American abstractionist Jack Whitten’s first solo exhibition in Asia. Until July 31, this collection of rarely seen paintings, sculptures and works on paper includes significant works that track Whitten’s evolution as an artist. Included in the exhibition is his ‘Black Monolith’ painting series, which honours African American visionaries and uses an eclectic mix of materials to capture the essence of his admired subjects.

3/5 Pace Gallery

Representing some of the most influential contemporary artists, Pace Gallery presents an exciting exhibition this month with two prominent artists who are both at important stages of their careers until June 30. Its first two-person exhibition, American artist Adam Pendleton and Ghanaian-British artist and architect Sir David Adjaye OBE feature their work side by side, with Pendleton’s new body of paintings, Untitled (WE ARE NOT), set amongst Adjaye’s geometric marble sculptures. A visual and spatial dialogue between Pendleton’s paintings and Adjaye’s sculptural works reveal an ongoing mutual interest in the relationship between art and architecture.

4/5 Tang Contemporary Art

From May 18 to June 19, renowned contemporary Chinese artist Pang Maokun will be featured at Tang Contemporary with his solo exhibition, Flowers in the Mirror. This series of oil paintings and paper works include captivating portraits of Pang’s friends, family and colleagues, and highlights their emotions and inner states. The use of mirrors in many of the works draws attention to the notion of “the gaze”, allowing viewers to see the painted subjects from the artist's perspective and share his unique impressions. Parodically, everyday backgrounds are also used to play with traditional narratives of classical paintings.

5/5 Whitestone Gallery

Renowned American artist Donald Moffett’s first solo exhibition in Asia takes place from May 18 to June 26 at pioneering Japanese institution Whitestone Gallery. Nature Cult includes a variety of works from his oeuvre that explore the intersection of art, nature and desire. The range and contrasts of non-traditional mediums used in his work creates a unique and provocative approach to the medium of painting that challenges preconceptions. Investigating a wide range of issues such as the AIDS epidemic and the environmental crisis through his work, Moffett’s exhibition at Whitestone is not one to miss.
