About the Art Competition and Exhibition
To encourage participation in art creation and promote the appreciation of contemporary art, Asia Society Hong Kong Center invites all visitors to give in to their imaginations and engage in a dialogue with Yoshitomo Nara’s work and his world through this open art competition and exhibition. Winning and selected works will be exhibited in Chantal Miller Gallery.
Submission Period: March 23 - July 26, 2015, 6pm (HKT)
Themes of the entry: Inspired by Nara - Imagination of Life
Yoshitomo Nara’s work draws on his childhood memories, imaginations, emotions and his interpretation of “life”. He sometimes projects himself and his feelings into his signature portraits of largeheaded girls and lonesome puppies. Through his many adorable pastel-colored figures, Nara also makes us think about life’s bigger questions. What do you think of your life? What inspires you in Nara’s work? Create an art work to express your imagination and emotions toward life, as inspired by Nara.
The art work can be of any themes or styles inspired by Yoshitomo Nara's art.
