The chosen artworks for artexpo New York 2018 will be named ART & EARTH.
ART & EARTH serves two purposes -- unlike any previous international art fairs I have curated.
First of all, delivering a clear message on environmental protection as this is the most vital issue in the world today. Current human behavior is causing climate change, ecological crisis and an increase in animal extinction.
With its artworks, ART & EARTH wants to deliver a profound and abundant message on the meaning of life. Each artwork represents a different perspective on life. From an insect, a planet, to the polar bear -- the top of the animal food chain, even to the whole universe, humans are strongly connected to each creature on the earth; humans are also a presence of each unit of lives. I want to enhance audience awareness for environmental protection via artexpo New York.
Secondly, ART & EARTH will exhibit in a refreshing way to give you a brand-new experience. I am applying the philosophy of curating gallery in this international art event, providing a gallery-liked view. ART & EARTH will not only sell works of art, but it will also try to tell a meaningful story relating to the environmental issues we are facing today. The chosen art works are diverse and include contemporary photography, abstract and realistic paintings.
We artists are concerned about humans’ care for the Earth. The artists and I hope that everyone on earth will love the environment and its creatures more. Furthermore, we wish to emphasize there is an urgent need to protect our home, the EARTH.
In the 40th year of artexpo New York, I am eager to give our audience something exciting by exhibiting these fine arts. Most importantly, I hope ART & EARTH will be able to be promoted in other platforms worldwide.
