Yoshitomo Nara in Hong Kong
The Asia Society Hong Kong Center is hosting the first major solo exhibition of renowned Japanese Pace artist Yoshitomo Nara in Hong Kong until 26 July, 2015. Life is Only One: Yoshitomo Nara exhibition includes a selection of Nara’s most evocative works, public lectures and educational programmes to bring visitors closer to one of the world’s most celebrated contemporary artists. The title of the exhibition comes from the Nara painting Life is Only One! and reflects an abiding theme of the artist’s work. The juxtaposition of the innocent-looking girl and the human skull on the canvas prompts us to contemplate on the big question about the fleeting nature of life.
