Creating art without boundaries - Exhibition Details:
This year the prize is co-presented by Justice Centre Hong Kong and the European Union Office of Hong Kong & Macao. Originally launched by Justice Centre Hong Kong in 2013, the prize plays a pivotal role in discovering and encouraging Hong Kong-based artists to explore the state of human rights both at home and abroad. Importantly it provides a platform for artists to create work without boundaries to magnify the impact and exposure of their stories.
