The area
Neighborhood: Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
How to get there
  • Central • 3 min walk
  • Hong Kong • 5 min walk

Small, a little intimidating.

The exhibition I had the misfortune of seeing was not for me, philistine that I am, but I'll review the space itself rather than hold the art against it TOO much. (Though seemingly random brush strokes don't impress, I have to say.) There were 3 icy front of house staff and a friendly security guard who followed me round, outnumbering the three visitors. The gallery is maybe 50m long, divided into 5 sections, as well as a small shop selling books with work by Hirst, Koons et al. Not much else to say: it's clearly aimed at buyers and art students not the general public. That's fine but just not a great place to visit.

I just visited the gallery to see the Anish Kapoor exhibition. The work was stunning. The gallery itself is quite nice and centrally located. The staff were polite but kept to themselves. This may be a cultural thing. I received the exact same reception at every gallery I've been to thus far in Hong Kong. I was not spoken to unless I spoke. This, however, is better than the alternative, in my opinion.

The gallery is conveniently located in a building that also houses a number of other noteworthy galleries. Well worth the visit. A must if you are an art lover.

It’s a bit unfair to classify as “attraction” what remains a commercial business, but not many visitors will be able to afford the art on sale - and Gagosian is well aware of this. The quality of some of their exhibitions is so outstanding that it would be a pity not to visit. Further, the Pedder building where the Gagosian Gallery is located has the highest concentration of contemporary art galleries in Hong Kong, with Lehmann Maupin, Pearl Lam and Ben Brown also there.

World class gallery with international following and world renonwed artists.

In comment to the first review, yes, in most cases these receptionists of such galleries are a bit arrogant and can smell the potential deal or " just and onlooker". But on the end, if you just like to look at the galleries artworks, you would not even appreciate to have somebody following and try to sell you a million dollar painting. Enjoy that you can see such amazing art for free and don't get bothered that they do not spend their energy with you. This week they had amazing art pieces of international laureated artists, such as Takashi Murakami, and many others. Interestingly paired with ancient artifacts from Asia. Unusual but inspiring. Always worth a visit.
