The first exhibition by postwar US artist Al Held in Hong Kong features works spanning his entire career, from his colourful, dynamic beginnings, seen in his Pigment Paintings and Taxi Cab series, to the more pared-back, geometric, minimal pieces and distorted, complex works of his later years.

Until January 11. White Cube, 50 Connaught Road, Central. whitecube.com

Works by 10 of the most significant Vietnamese artists of the 20th century are featured in this show at Bonhams. All of them lived through the Vietnam War and the subsequent economic reforms in the 1980s—changes that are reflected in their varied work.

Until January 24. Bonhams Hong Kong, Suite 2001, One Pacific Place, 88 Queensway, Admiralty. bonhams.com

British artist Rose Wylie’s paintings and drawings are more than they seem. Simplistic upon first glance in their colourful, childlike style, they are actually complex commentaries on visual art itself, taking inspiration from a variety of sources including film, fashion, literature, news stories and daily occurrences. 

January 9 to February 22. David Zwirner, 5-6/F, H Queen's, 80 Queen's Road Central, Central. davidzwirner.com
