With the shift in consumer spending power to the newly wealthy Chinese, it’s no surprise that a western gallery of the Gagosian magnitude would be attracted to Hong Kong.  Is there a better way to celebrate conspicuous consumption than to have Damien Hirst’s “For Heaven’s Sake,” a life-size human baby skull cast in diamonds, on display at the inaugural exhibition?  It’s Hong Kong…the thing might actually sell if it had Harry Winston written all over it (today’s gratuitous plug for the person I know working there).  Nothing wrong with selling wealth and a bag of sophistication.  So what happens to the other galleries?

We were looking forward to working with No Borders Art Gallery.  Opened in September 2009, met the manager in August 2010…no replies to email four months later.
