Award 2017

The Social Art Award 2017

Can art change the world?

Under this question, the Institute for Art and Innovation e.V. had launched the first Social Art Award in 2017. Artists and cultural actors of all areas were invited to apply with their work to the field of social art. Artists from 131 countries responded with extraordinary works and projects.

On September 5, 2017, the three winners Lino Tonelotto from France, Quek Jia Qi from Singapore and Diogo da Cruz from Portugal were honored, and exhibited at WHITECONCEPTS Gallery in Berlin. They demonstrated with their politically engaged works that art can make current events visible and tangible. This is an important understanding for bringing forward the debate and thus a social change.

Title:
Domestic Abuse

Author:
O. Yemi Tubi

Description:
Rose is one of the gifts often used as romantic gesture of love and it naturally grows from the stems of thorns. In this painting, O. Yemi painted a scene of a domestic abuse in which the husband sat reading newspaper while the wife is overwhelmed with the domestic tasks. He creates the wife with rose and stems of thorns with the crown of thorns to show her suffering. Couples should not focus on their partners’ thorns but appreciate the fragrance of love emanating from them.
