Hong Kong Evisu amassed the talents of 48 local Hong Kong artists to participate in their Cube Gallery. The Cube Gallery was an idea inspired by the post-modern displays of art seen in Tokyo and Osaka where unconventional locations add to the allure of art as they battle side by side with the noise of pachinko machines and the shadows cast by clubs. Each artist was given few guidelines except the following 1. Their piece must use denim 2. There must be at least one “Evisu” part 3. The art piece had to fit in a box 36cm x 36cm x 36cm. Aside from denim, the artists were given other pieces and parts used in the creation of denim which included buttons, rivets, labels and tags.
All pieces are shown in a touring exhibition through the following dates and venues:
April 11 Ã¢Â€Â“ 17 :: EVISU Ocean Terminal Store (OT 304, Tsim Sha Tsui)
April 18 Ã¢Â€Â“ 27 :: D-MOP Kingston St Store (Upper floor, Causeway Bay)
April 28 Ã¢Â€Â“ May 08 :: EVISU Ocean Terminal Store (OT 304, Tsim Sha Tsui)
In the final week, each piece will be available for auction in $100 increments at starting prices listed by the artists. All proceeds will benefit the Hong Kong Children’s Cancer Foundation.
