  1. Founded in Bangkok in 1997, Tang Contemporary Art has grown to include galleries in Beijing and Hong Kong. The gallery, a pioneer in the Asian contemporary art scene, focuses on Chinese and Southeast Asian contemporary artists, including Ai Weiwei, Huang Yongping, Shen Yuan, and Wang Du. Tang Contemporary Art was the first gallery to relocate to H Queen's, Hong Kong's first "vertical art complex", which is situated in a cutting-edge glass skyscraper created exclusively for galleries.

    Tang Contemporary Art is well-known for putting on fascinating shows that foster dialogue between regional and international artists at each of its venues. S.E.A., New Generation (2019), for example, brought the work of nine Southeast Asian artists to Bangkok, whereas Everlasting (2017) featured the work of seven US-based artists in Beijing. The gallery exhibits at several art fairs, both in China (such as ART021 Shanghai Contemporary Art Fair, Art Shenzhen, and West Bund Art & Design, Shanghai) and internationally (such as Art Basel in Hong Kong, Art Busan, Art Jakarta, Frieze New York, and ASIA NOW, Paris).

    Blindspot Gallery

    Set up in 2010, Blindspot Gallery is a Hong Kong-based contemporary art gallery. Blindspot gallery founder and director Mimi Chun has always been well connected to the local art scene and has closely observed its development over the years. Speaking about the changes, she says, "photography had very little representation in Hong Kong and there were very few galleries who had a consistently progressive program of contemporary art. There were a number of galleries focusing on high-priced, secondary market, Chinese or Western art, and some small galleries selling decorative arts”.

    The gallery began with a particular concentration on contemporary photography and image-based art but has now expanded to encompass a wide range of modern media. The gallery represents both new and recognized artists, primarily from Hong Kong and the surrounding region, but also from outside. This 7,000-square-foot gallery on the southern edge of Hong Kong Island's Wong Chuk Hang industrial district introduces you to works by local Hong Kong artists and creative figures from Southeast Asia.
