RED BULL CURATES CANVAS COOLER PROJECT
Red Bull has tapped 20 of Tokyo’s up-and-coming young artists to create original works of art using a most unusual canvas—a mini Red Bull refrigerator. Aptly named the Red Bull Curates Canvas Cooler Project, this exciting venture into the world of contemporary art has already made waves in 15 of the world’s most progressive cities, including New York, Chicago and Milan, but the Tokyo show marks a Japan first. Under the theme “Tokyo Tasai” (the many colors of Tokyo), the project will kick off with an opening event on October 26 at the famed art space SuperDeluxe, followed by a 10-day exhibition at the new Red Bull Tokyo office from October 28 through November 7. The exhibition will feature a fusion of old and new and tradition and innovation, reflecting the sensibilities of its host city Tokyo. Participating artists include painters, sculptors, contemporary artists and fashion designers in a showcase that boasts a broad variety of the city’s exceptional talent.
In an effort to nurture budding future artists, the Red Bull Curates Canvas Cooler Student Competition is being held in tandem with this project, eligible for entry to all students of universities and trade schools in the Tokyo area. After a one-week online voting period, one lucky winner will have the chance to exhibit work among this group of highly esteemed artists.
Select finished work will be shown at the 10/26 opening party, while the complete collection will be on display for 10 days at the Red Bull Tokyo office before each cooler finds its permanent home in carefully selected cafés, bars and clubs around the city.
