ARTJOG accepts the variety of works; a painting, a graphic, a photograph, a multidimension installation, a sculpture, a mechanic kinetic until a performance art.
In this program, ARTJOG would work with an (individual or a group of) artist to present the works as the main attraction for public, and as the icon of ARTJOG. The artist that ARTJOG picks has an assignment to present the works that responds to the exhibition building according to the theme of ARTJOG. By picking different theme and artist each year, hopefully ARTJOG can provide a visual presentation that’s always different and surpising.
