The UT GRAND PRIX (UTGP) is a design competition that started in 2005 that uses the T-shirt as a creative medium and invites everyone to freely express creativity. For the 15th UTGP, UNIQLO worked with MoMA (The Museum of Modern Art) in New York City and invited prominent artists, with work in MoMA’s collection, to be contest judges: Lawrence Weiner, Paula Scher and Sarah Morris. Participants designed T-shirts based on the theme “DRAW YOUR WORLD.”
Since the 1960s, Lawrence Weiner has made art that explores materials and their relationships to people. He makes his work using language along with lots of different signs and symbols. He makes it this way because he believes that when people see his work, they can think about their own picture of it because everybody has different experiences with things.
