The New York Times covers Oscar yi Hou’s Brooklyn Museum exhibition

October 22, 2022

When a prolific artist has only turned 24, it’s probably safe to say that his pieces can be considered “early work.”

Despite his youth, the New York–based British artist Oscar yi Hou has a recently opened exhibition of 11 paintings at the Brooklyn Museum, making him one of the youngest artists to have a solo show at a major New York museum. “Oscar yi Hou: East of sun, west of moon” will be on view through Sept. 17, 2023.

The exhibition is part of the Uovo Prize for Brooklyn artists, sponsored by the art storage company Uovo, won by Mr. yi Hou this year. The Brooklyn Museum selects the winner and, in addition to a show there, the winner also receives a $25,000 cash grant and space for a large mural outside Uovo’s Brooklyn facility, where Mr. yi Hou’s 50-foot-tall work ​“Flock together, aka: a mural family portrait” (2022) is now on display.
