The Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) in New York is pleased to announce that the exhibition “What do you see?—Contemporary Art from Taiwan” will be held from November 30, 2017 to January 26, 2018 at the TECO gallery (1 E. 42nd Street).
The two-month long event showcases artwork from seven Taiwanese artists on the subject of reality and the ways in which we interpret our reality through sight and language. The exhibition, which includes paintings, sculptures as well as new media and installation art, hopes to create a dialogue with local artists and foster cultural exchange and collaboration between Taiwanese artists and their international peers.
This marks the first time that works from Art Bank, Taiwan will be shown in New York. A program under the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, Art Bank aims to promote artistic creation and the cultivation of Taiwanese artists through a public collection program. Government agencies and private companies are encouraged to rent artwork from Art Bank for display in public places in order to raise appreciation for the arts, increase the circulation of artwork and invigorate the art market in Taiwan.
The exhibition is jointly organized by the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in New York, the Taipei Cultural Center, Taiwan Academy and Art Bank, Taiwan. Dates: Nov. 30, 2017 – Jan. 26, 2018Venue:
