Hockney, England, has been named the art exhibition to open in the United States this month, after a five-year residency of artists who came to the city from across Asia.
Hockneys Art Gallery, in the city’s main street, will open in November.
Hogans Art Museum, in New York City, is the third Asian-American art gallery to open this year.
Hofmann Gallery, an exhibition of art by a group of Vietnamese artists from Vietnam, will also open on Saturday, the city said.
The gallery will be named after the late artist and Hockneys resident Hocky Holman, who died in February at age 87.
A statement on the museum’s website said Holman’s work has been exhibited at several Asian art galleries, including New York, London, Sydney and Melbourne.
The museum said it plans to focus on Hock’s work and to present other Asian art.
Hokey Ho, a co-founder of the Vietnam-based artist collective Ho Hoi, who was born in Australia, said he was inspired by Holman.
“I feel like the future of Hock is going to be based on Hokey’s work, so I feel honored to have been selected,” Ho said.
“Hock’s paintings and sculptures are a testament to Hoke’s legacy, but I feel more honored to be associated with this collection.”
The museum will hold the exhibit in collaboration with the HockNEY Cultural Centre.
