中文

Artists inspire us, but what inspires artists?

Asia Art Archive (AAA) invited artists from around the world to choose a book that inspired their artistic practice and share personal stories related to their selection, thereby providing singular perspectives on these foundational texts—whether novels, poetry, or classics from sci-fi, psychology, history, philosophy, and other disciplines. ‘Under the Influence: A Travelling Library of Books that Inspire Artists’ features one hundred titles, from across multiple genres, chosen by these artists.

AAA is now calling for applications from Hong Kong secondary schools to host this exhibition on campuses. Students will learn from artists’ reading and creation journeys, expand their cultural exposure and scope of reading, and build their capacity for knowledge transfer and integration.

Application Method
Please return the completed application form, together with all reference materials to learn@aaa.org.hk, indicating ‘Application for "Under the Influence" Travelling Library’ in the subject line.
