#8ARTISTS COLLECTIVE EXHIBITION IN HONG KONG

time 8 Aug - 8 Sep noon (8hr)

location 香港A2Z畫廊 》香港中環歌賦街41號

(free event)

“#8Artists” is a collective exhibition, opening on the 8th of August 2019. A2Z Art Gallery has selected a group of 8 artists and presented each with a challenge to create artworks that are more instagramable.The selected artists enter into a dialogue that investigates the importance of social media in society and how the advantages and disadvantages cross over into the art-world[s].

To quote the Greek philosopher Heraclitus, “Change is the only constant” and true to this fact, in just a little more than a decade, humanity has adopted the use of social media platforms as part of our everyday life. It’s estimated that over 3 billion people are currently using social network apps such asinstagram. Artists are increasingly using these platforms to reach a wider audience; such actions have definitely made the art communities larger and the art-world[s] more accessible.

In contemporary society, social media is being used a tool to achieve altogether very different outcomes and in a world that often feels divided, it can depend on which camp you belong to socially or politically as to how you view these online, social activities; positive or negative. The risk versus reward is more often than not, too irresistible, and for the average person risks are thrown by the wayside. Risk,invariably being the dumbing down of society and the health issues that accompany using social media and Reward, on the whole being dopamine hits or in many cases social or even financial gain. Is social media applied in this way and having the same effect toward art?
