Introduction 作品介紹

Amsterdam X Macao Art of Illustration Exhibition

<<Amsterdam X Macao Art of Illustration Exhibition>> brings together a total of 20 charming illustrators from Macau and Holland. The exhibition will take place in Amsterdam Holland and Macau in August and December 2018 respectively.

Illustration is graphical representations of a real or imagined world, including an array of techniques used depict, photography to painting. It is used to convey thoughts, feelings, facts, feelings and emotions. . Its role is to attract attention, persuade, create context, inform, enhance understanding or entertain an audience.

Through this event, our goal is to create a network between a community of established and emerging artists providing them the opportunity to exchange information about new developments in their work field and to promote each other. At the same time through seminars and workshops held during the exhibitions, we hope to raise awareness of this particular art form to the general public.

《阿姆斯特丹澳門當代插畫藝術交流展》匯集了共20位來自澳門與阿姆斯特丹的插畫家。是次展覽將於今年2018年分別在荷蘭阿姆斯特丹及澳門舉行。

插圖是用圖形表示一個真實的或是想像的世界,使用的技術包括陣列描繪,攝影到繪畫。它是用來傳達思想,感覺,事實,情感和情緒。生處於二十一世紀中,插圖可以更有效地吸引我們的眼球從而創造環境,提供信息,增進了解和娛樂觀眾。藝術介漸漸意識到插圖藝術在這些不同的領域發揮的重要性.

藉著此次活動,我們一方面希望能把本澳的藝術創作推廣到外地,將本地插畫家及作品帶出澳門,令更多世界各地的人認識,更能讓他們認識到本澳的藝術文化。另一方面將荷蘭插畫家及作品帶到澳門,令澳門的藝文活動更為多元,並促使本地及荷蘭插畫家有更多交流,增進彼此之間的聯繫。同時展覽期間舉辦座談會及工作坊,希望大眾能欣賞作品之餘,亦加深對插畫的興趣,了解更多插畫與生活及各行各業息息相關的關係。

About NIEUW DAKOTA / TRANSLOCAL ART SPACE

Nieuw Dakota is a platform for contemporary art on the NDSM wharf in Amsterdam North. We program exhibitions, organise special events and realise temporary projects in public space. We direct ourselves towards national and international collaborations with artists, curators, galleries and institutions. Projects are realised after thorough research, deliberation and collaboration. Through this process Nieuw Dakota forms an innovative, diverse and stimulating contribution to the cultural climate of Amsterdam and beyond.

With translocality we are trying to describe the connection between the local and the global. Nieuw Dakota is curiously exploring this concept and trying to describe the mirrored relations between the global and the local and vice versa. We research locality, look for more (inter)national collaboration and understanding and present artistic talents. With our exploration we try to offer a counterweight to the uniform and shapeless consequences of globalization whoms effects we see around us. From a translocal perspective, the western hegemony should not exist anymore.
