The Hong Kong Jockey Club presents Life is Only One: Yoshitomo Nara – the first major solo exhibition of the renowned Japanese artist in Hong Kong. The exhibition title comes from one of Nara’s paintings, Life Is Only One! A provocative declaration – but of what? Nara invites Hong Kong visitors to give in to their imaginations and engage in a dialogue with the artist’s work and his world. Through a rich selection of paintings, sketches, photographs, sculptures and mixed-media installations covering a broad range of his oeuvre in the past two decades, the exhibition will present a journey into Nara’s open-ended interpretation of “life.
This open workshop series welcomes all exhibition visitors to drop in and create their own art work as inspired or in response to the exhibition. The workshops will run every last Sunday of the month during the exhibition period, from 12 noon to 6 pm. Each month’s workshop will be with different themes and art medium. Art materials will be supplied and educators will be present at the studio to provide assistance. Participants are welcome to submit their finished art works to the “Life is Only One-Imagination of Life” art competition.
July Workshop “Music Inspiration ”
Music is an essential element in Nara’s creation of art. As an avid record collector, Nara gets inspiration from music. The artist has created a number of album art, in which the unique musical style of his favorite musicians can be visualized through Nara's perfect blending of sound and image.
This open workshop will be led by educators who will guide visitors on how to create an album art for their choice of musician and musical genre. To let participants experience how Nara is inspired by music while creating his artwork, music records which Nara created the album art for will be played in the venue as well.
