Last year I was able to attend Frank Gehry's first ever comprehensive exhibition of the completed and current works in Hong Kong at ArtisTree, TaiKoo Place.
I only had my little ipod with me to take photos, that is why the photos are so grainy.

Gehry is building a very upscale residential building in Hong Kong, his first building in Asia. It is situated on one of those elevated-land-prime-real-estate locations in Hong Kong. I think the developer may have helped sponsor this exhibition, because ArtisTree is in a building owned by the developer.
