Osage Gallery was established in Hong Kong in 2004 and grew quickly to become one of Asia’s largest commercial gallery groups. Osage has become well known in the art world for its uncompromising support for the most challenging and critically thought-provoking contemporary art.
Osage Gallery is curatorially driven with a particular focus on contemporary Asian arts. It aims to be a catalyst for the creative expression of the artists and the active engagement of audiences by embracing a global, multidisciplinary and diverse approach to the creation, presentation and interpretation of a diverse network of practices and works.
