BMW Art Journey 2021

Shortlist Announcement & Artist Talk with Leelee Chan
20th May | 7PM | BMW Wanchai Showroom

Join us for the announcement of the 2021 BMW Art Journey shortlist and an artist talk with last year’s recipient Leelee Chan.

The BMW Art Journey is a joint initiative of Art Basel and BMW sending artists on journeys of creative discovery. An international jury of experts nominates three artists, represented by galleries in the Discoveries sector at Art Basel in Hong Kong and galleries founded no more than 10 years ago. The artists are then invited to develop a proposal for their ideal journey to conduct research and create new work, with the winner to be announced in June 2021.

Before the announcement, Hong Kong based artist Leelee Chan, who travelled to Italy & Germany in the wake of her 2020 art journey project “Tokens from Time”, will share insights in an artist talk moderated by Aaina Bhargava (Freelance for Art Review & South China Morning Post).


2020 BMW Art Journey Winner

Last year's recipient Leelee Chan will present works resulting from her journey in a presentation at the fair by Capsule Shanghai as well as at the BMW showroom. Her BMW Art Journey project "Tokens from Time" traces material culture from the past, present and future. The artist interprets “tokens” as material objects and their respective historical development which represent the key qualities and feelings of living in societies across different historical and cultural contexts.
