Climate Change: Artistic Dialogue Between Nicolas Vial and Young Hong Kong Artists
Le French May
Renowned French artist Nicolas Vial is the illustrator for Le Figaro (French magazine) and has been publishing satirical editorial cartoons on Le Monde (The World newspaper) for over 30 years. He is widely celebrated for his succinct political humour and his prescience on environmental issues, particularly ocean pollution and climate change. Curated by the Young Friends of the Art Museum of CUHK and Virginie Morin Brucker, this exhibition displays around 30 pieces of original illustrations by the artist, alongside works by young emerging Hong Kong artists to converge on the imminent subject of climate change and global environmental distress.
A series of outreach activities has been planned around the exhibition with Young Friends; through workshops and sharing sessions, we hope to raise awareness about the severity of environmental decay and how art can play a crucial role in promulgating public awareness for critical social issues.
