Curator: Charles Liu
Place/Displace: Three Generations of Taiwanese Art aims to present a survey of contemporary Taiwanese art, showcasing artists who are both from Taiwan and the diasporic communities of Taiwanese living abroad. Featuring more traditional work alongside avant-garde work, guest curator Charles Liu examines the role of politics, economics, communication, and environment in the formation of identity.
Historically, Taiwan has had a close but often difficult relationship with the People’s Republic of China, and has also had close ties to Japan and the United States. Culture in Taiwan is therefore quite global in nature, and artwork is balanced between local and foreign culture. Artists exhibited in Place/Displace combine expressions of individual subjectivity with those of national identity, reflecting upon aspects of Taiwanese culture as they relate to identity. With the advancement of democracy, freedom, and internationalism since the mid 1980s, Taiwanese artists have developed innovative ways to integrate Western, Taiwanese, and Chinese cultures.
In conjunction with this exhibition, the Richmond Art Gallery and Centre A are hosting a symposium.
A 120 page Catalogue in Chinese and English published for the touring exhibition curated by Charles Liu and John Begley, held at the RAG April 28 - June 2, 2005.
