Art Experience Foundation proudly presents Yes, and Now: a group exhibition of selected artists from First Smash 5. A platform for potential contemporary artists based in Hong Kong, the fifth edition of “First Smash” will showcase the work of eight artists. Works to be shown range from paintings, photography, installations to video art. The project encourages emerging artists, who are ready to showcase their work and talent to a greater audience, to promptly embrace new opportunities as encapsulated by the motto “Yes, and Now”. To them, each and every exhibition opportunity is a precious experience, which further enhances their creative concepts and techniques.
The eight Hong Kong-based artists selected by the Foundation include graduates from local and overseas art academies and an undergraduate student. While most of the works are brand new creations, the latest reincarnations of some of their final year art projects will also be shown at Art Experience Gallery.
