Object(ing): The Art/Design of Tobias Wong at the MOV

Comments 7 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The Museum of Vancouver (“MOV”) is launching a new exhibition called Object(ing): The art/design of Tobias Wong. It starts this week with an opening night reception on Thursday to celebrate the work of this Vancouverite who is considered one of the most provocative and conceptual designers of his generation.

The late Tobias Wong’s work has seduced, fascinated, outraged and inspired observers, but the artist is no longer here to explain himself. What were the conceptual origins of his work? What inspired him? What shaped him? How does his work continue to influence other creators today? Through show and tell, his friends, family and observers from the art and design world will reveal the enigmatic artist through his work.

On October 4th the MOV will host another special event called “Tobias Wong: Show & Tell” where some of Wong’s friends and family will be sharing items from his collection.

I have two tickets to give away for this event along with a private tour of the exhibition thanks to the MOV. Here’s how you can enter to win this experience:

I will draw one winner at random from all entries next Thursday, September 27, 2012.

Object(ing): The art/design of Tobias Wong will be on at the MOV until February, 24, 2013. Tickets are still available for $15 for opening night and Show & Tell. Follow the Museum of Vancouver on Facebook and Twitter.

Update The winner is Karen!
