Hong Kong’s Gallery Exit is hosting a benefit sale to raise funds for their gallery director Anthony Tao, who suffered a brain hemorrhage last December. According to an email circulated among the local art community, while Tao “was operated on immediately and is currently in stable condition,” he is likely to require long-term care. Local artists including Nadim Abbas, Ho Sin Tung, Lee Kit, Lam Tung Pang, among others who have shown at the gallery over the years, have donated their works to show support for Tao. The preview of the sale is happening at the gallery in Hong Kong’s industrial Tin Wan district through May 8; the sale will continue online until July 8. All the proceeds from sales artworks will go to a medical and recovery care fund.
