“Wohoooh!!!” is a traveling exhibition curated by Tricia Tang (HK). The exhibition started out in Hong Kong in November 2011 and traveled to Sydney, Australia and Taipei, Taiwan before ending its trip in Bangkok, Thailand at ATTA Gallery. This exhibition presents a link between art and consumer design product in the forms of contemporary jewelry. The works in this exhibition will show the audience a different approach to contemporary art and design in everyday life.

To creators in this exhibition, they constantly have to ask themselves what is contemporary jewelry? Should they classify the kind of work they create as independent entity, under jewelry field, under art field, under design field or should they be included in all the above mentioned?
