“Untitled” has two meanings: “an artwork title that is commonly seen in contemporary art” and “a person without a title”. As indicated by its title, artworks showcased in this exhibition are created by contemporary artists who identify themselves as untitled artists and looking for greater exposure for their art.
This group exhibition is the final stage of last year’s open call campaign “The Untitled Artists” which was launched by Our Gallery in August. During the five months application period, we received nearly two hundred applications and found that there is no shortage of potential artists. The selection process without pre-screening applicants’ resumes, but only reviewed their artworks. Ultimately, ten artists were selected into this group exhibition (names are listed in alphabetical order): Armechan, Caine Wong, CyrusNONAME, Ingrid Wong, Jennifer Chow, Lee Ping Sun, Mitchell Hung, Simon Yung, So Kwok Kin, and Wong Wai Kin. The artworks created by these ten artists are different in many ways – in terms of their forms, mediums, contents, styles and ways of presentation. The common similarity of these works somehow reflects the talent and creativity of their creators.
In this exhibition, we’re delighted to introduce a group of talented Hong Kong artists and their outstanding works to the public. They are sensitive to different topics and each of them tries to express their own concerns and thoughts through their arts. We hope that the ten artists’ messages can be delivered to the audiences, strike a chord among them and trigger their imaginations.
