EXPLORE THE 2023 SHORTLIST!
"Our Changing World"
- Theme of 2023
The 'Colours of Humanity' Art Prize is an annual Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion event, in support of Justice Centre Hong Kong's work for displaced people. It is co-hosted by Justice Centre Hong Kong, the EU Office in Hong Kong and Macao, with support from the Goethe-Institut Hongkong.
The Art Prize recognises and rewards visionary submissions with three top prizes. Shortlisted works are displayed at an exhibition at the Goethe-Gallery and Black Box Studio. Alongside a programme of thought-provoking panels, an award night, and a charitable auction supporting Justice Centre's work, the 'Colours of Humanity' Art Prize sparks dialogue and reflection on the diversity that unites us.
This year's 'Colours of Humanity' Art Prize urges Hong Kong artists to delve into the theme 'Our Changing World'. They're invited to explore various aspects of global evolution: socially, culturally, technologically, and environmentally, and the way the affect people differently. The theme is broad, encouraging unique interpretations by artists and visitors.
'Colours of Humanity'
Each of the 30 shortlisted works has been selected for its unique and insightful exploration of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, both at home and abroad, from the record number of 102 artworks submitted. The list represents established and emerging Hong Kong artists, community artists, and youth artists in diverse media, while featuring a range of subject matters, including international displacement, climate change, labour migration, feminism, and gender and sexual diversity.
The exhibition runs from 1 December 2023 to 14 January 2024 at the Goethe-Gallery and Black Box Studio, Goethe-Institut Hongkong. Free guided tours are available for registration through this form on a first-come-first-serve basis. See below for the venue's opening hours.
