Hillyer Art Space Presents “Starting from the Island, Contemporary Art from Taiwan

IA&A at Hillyer presents Starting from the Island, Contemporary Art from Taiwan, curated by Yan-Huie Chen of Art Bank Taiwan. The exhibition will open on Friday, August 2, 2019 and will run through Sunday, September 29, 2019. Artist Kuen-Lin Tsai will be present at the opening reception on Friday, August 2, 2019 from 6-9pm.

Starting from the Island is an exhibition of how four artists from Taiwan connect their multi-local life experiences and environmental observations in a fast-changing contemporary environment of information overload. As they compare and contrast local with global, insularity with overseas, and cities with mountains, and as their discussions stretch from where they live to phenomena in the society and in the world, they are having a conversation with their external environment and with the viewers through their art creation.

This exhibition is presented in partnership with Taiwan Art Bank of the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, the Taiwan Academy of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in the United States.
