Starkwhite at Art Basel Hong Kong 2017

Starkwhite will present a group show at Art Basel Hong Kong (2017) exploring various approaches to composing or choreographing color, motion and movement. It will feature the work of pioneer experimental filmmaker Len Lye (NZ/US), along with works by contemporary practitioners Rebecca Baumann (AUS), Daniel Crooks (AUS/NZ) and Alicia Frankovich (DE/NZ), who are all represented by Starkwhite. Like our recent exhibition at Art Basel Hong Kong 2016, it will provide an historical context for a slice of contemporary practice in the region, this time by a group of innovative Australian and New Zealand-born artists who push boundaries in their work and view Lye as a source of inspiration.  Our presentation is with the generous support of Creative New Zealand.
