Talk 1: Pop Art Popping Across Borders

As its name suggests, pop art is an art form that negotiates between pop culture and art. Pop art works are often inspired by the public and the art form, among others, is thus most easily accessible to the public. Pop art evolves with the generations and is no longer confined to pure art pieces, but has found it ways into high fashion series and home appliances like works by Takashi Murakami and those by Yayoi Kusama. As for the talk, we’ll have three speakers who have earned titles in multiple disciplines to share with us the new landscape of pop art from the perspectives of fashion, skateboarding, art and music.

Talk 2: Art Toys Fever

Art Toys has gained fame internationally but guess where it originates from? Hong Kong! Famous contemporary artists such as KAWS, Yoshitomo Nara and Hajime Sorayama have been great examples of artists promoting Art Toys. Their Art Toys have been valued as much as original art pieces and have even been sold for very high prices at auctions. In this talk, a home-grown Art Toys designer, a toy developer, and a representative of a pop art gallery will introduce us to the world of Art Toys and guide us on our way to becoming a pop art expert!
