The fifteen winning art pieces of 2013 UNESCO Chair in Bioethics and Human Rights Bioethics Art Completion began another exhibition on February 24, 2014 lasting until March 7, 2014 in the Lobby of the Chi Wah Learning Commons in the Hong Kong University.

The Second Bioethics Art Competition of the UNESCO Chair in Bioethics and Human Rights held its inauguration ceremony in Hong Kong at the Gallery by the Harbour of the Harbour City Shopping Mall on December 7, 2013.

In 2011, the First Bioethics Art Competition Exhibit was unveiled in the UN Headquarters in New York City.  The competition received 225 submissions from 23 countries by 132 artists reflecting upon the need to “Respect Human Vulnerability, Personal Integrity, Cultural Diversity and Pluralism.”

The 15 pieces of winning artworks of 2013 selected from three categories including Fine Arts, Photography and Student Art shed a special light on how to behave ethically in the areas of life sciences and biotechnology.  Future exhibitions are slated for New York, Rome, Mexico City and Houston in 2014.
