Art Mongolia Gallery (AMG) is hosting “Mind One”, a group exhibition by young artists under 30, through January 10.
AMG plans to organize group exhibitions for young artists twice a year. “Mind One” is the first exhibition for youth organized by AMG since it first opened in August 2016.
From December 20 to 24, AMG evaluated submissions of fine art, ceramics, sculpture, graphic art, and illustration for inclusion in the exhibition, conducting an open curatorial process to encourage and motivate young artists. A wood block print by U.Erdenetsetseg was selected as the exhibition’s best artwork on December 26.
Artist U.Erdenetsetseg received the opportunity to work in AMG’s studio for the first six months of 2017, and to present a solo exhibition there before June.
B.Azbayar, a member of AMG’s Board of Directors, said AMG selected artwork for “Mind One” that reflected new ideas and creative initiative, and that represented great effort.
He emphasized that U.Erdenetsetseg is a young and motivated artist, and that she invested a lot of time and effort to create her wood block print.
B.Azbayar added that promoting young artists is of great importance to maintaining and developing Mongolian art, and taking it to a new level. He said that AMG has nearly 20 member artists, and that the gallery helps provide its member artists with studio space.
