About the Art Open-call and Exhibition
To encourage participation in art creation and promote art, the Asia Society Hong Kong Center invites all visitors to give in to their imaginations and engage in a dialogue with Irene Chou’s work and her world, through this Art Open-call and exhibition. Winning and selected works will be exhibited in the Asia Society Hong Kong Center’s Chantal Miller Gallery.

Themes of Entry:
Joy of Art: Inspired by Irene Chou

Irene Chou began as “Sunday painter”, a leisurely activity beyond the chores of a housewife. Like many people, she experienced frustration and disappointment from her daily life. Painting became the channel for her to release her negative emotions. Chou’s paintings are bold, spontaneous, and adventurous. Her emotions and energy are transferred onto her ink and paper.

How would you use art to express your emotion? What kind of joy does Art bring to you? Let’s get inspiration from Chou’s art and create an artwork to express your inner world.
