  • HUGO BOSS ASIA ART

    Rockbund Art Museum (RAM) is delighted to partner with HUGO BOSS for the second edition of HUGO BOSS ASIA ART, Award for Emerging Asian Artists, in 2015. Following the success of its inaugural edition in 2013, the award returns with a focus on Greater China but this year it will also encompass Southeast Asia. The shortlisted artists will be announced at the end of June and their works will be shown in a group exhibition at RAM from 30 October 2015 – 3 January 2016. All artworks unveiled in the exhibition will be new commissions created for the Award.

    As part of the HUGO BOSS arts program, HUGO BOSS ASIA ART is conceived and curated by the Rockbund Art Museum and carries a stipend of ¥300,000. The biannual award aims to honor emerging contemporary artists who are in the early stages of their artistic creation and exhibition practices.

    Larys Frogier, RAM Director and Chair of the HUGO BOSS ASIA ART jury, elaborates on the conception of the accolade, “HUGO BOSS ASIA ART aims to develop long term and on-going examinations, combinations, confrontations between challenging topics and contexts. Indeed we consider Asia as a construction and as a question to investigate rather than a monolithic area and fixed identities. Asia is made of multi-sites to activate and to analyze in relation to its present on-going mutations, to its future development, and of course in articulation to its historical constructions.”

    Li Qi, Senior Curator at RAM, spoke about the significance of the inclusion of Southeast Asian artists, saying "cultural exchanges between Greater China and Southeast Asia have soared over the last five years, reflecting the changing geopolitical and economic dynamics in this region."

  • About the HUGO BOSS Arts Program

    Art and fashion are intertwined disciplines, in their nature guided by innovation and creativity. Both seek to forge something new, driven by the will to capture the spirit of their time. With the aim of encouraging an exchange between the two fields, HUGO BOSS initiated its Arts Sponsorship program in 1995 as an integral part of the Company’s corporate culture. Focusing on contemporary art, HUGO BOSS has supported numerous high-profile exhibitions with the intention to inspire people and to give leading artists a platform for their work. Examples of these were Georg Baselitz (1995 and 1996), Dennis Hopper (2001), Olafur Eliasson (2005), Josephine Meckseper (2007), Jeff Koons (2012) and Konstantin Grcic (2014). Moreover, HUGO BOSS has initiated two independent awards to support extraordinary talents and to emphasize their contributions to the arts. Founded in 1996 and in cooperation with the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and Museum in New York, the HUGO BOSS PRIZE has become one of the world‘s most renowned accolades for visionary contributions to contemporary art. The HUGO BOSS ASIA ART Award, introduced in 2013 and conceived and curated by the Rockbund Art Museum, focuses on promoting young emerging contemporary artists in Asia.
