Opened on July 3, the “Forum66 Art Summer ” silk scarf exhibition has heated locals’ interest in art. The exhibition is made up of 10 themed blocks created by 10 local artists. Nearly a hundred silk scarves with appearances on the edge between the dream and reality were designed specifically for this event.
The place for the exhibition is one of Shenyang’s most luxurious malls – Forum66 Plaza. It has long been a fashionable landmark of the city, a mixture of Chinese and Western cultures, and this time – a perfect middle ground where art meets fashion.
The idea behind this year’s “Art Summer” silk scarf exhibition is to promote local contemporary art and take it to masses. Events like this one help people to get a deeper understanding of art and fashion. When fashion meets art, new ideas and design techniques get born.
It’s safe to say that Forum66 Plaza has somewhat become a platform for artists and the general public to interact. And it allows the public to appreciate and, quite literally, touch the art.
