TECO presents Taiwan Sublime photo exhibition at two OPL branches in May
The Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Canada will present the Taiwan Sublime photo exhibition in May at Ottawa Public Library’s Stittsville Branch and Blackburn Hamlet Branch. Eleven and 12 photos will be displayed respectively at the two locations. The exhibitions are free to the public.
Taiwan Sublime comprises four series of photographs taken by four Taiwanese photographers who for many years have crisscrossed Taiwan and its smaller sister islands with the aim of creating a record of its natural and human wonders. The four series are:
In Interfaces – Rhythms of Nature and Humanity, photographer Chen Chih-hsiung highlights the variegated natural stage on which the human drama proceeds.
In Passion – Heavenly Feast of the Performing Arts, photographer Liu Chen-Hsiang gives a taste of the diversity and vitality of Taiwan’s modern dance and traditional drama.
In Folkways – Melding the Mundane and the Celestial, photographer Huang Ting-sheng presents scenes from everyday life that are rooted in the spiritual dimension.
In Soaring – An Elevated Vision of Natural Taiwan, photographer Chi Po-lin portrays the grandeur of Taiwan’s mountains, coastlines and waterways while conveying the heart-pounding exhilaration of experiencing the island from a bird’s-eye perspective.
The confluence and interplay of currents of humanity in Taiwan over the past several centuries has helped create an openhearted, pluralistic society able to assimilate elements of civilization from around the world in a distinctive, harmonious manner.
The dates and locations of the two exhibitions are as follows (exhibition can be viewed during regular library hours):
May 1 - 31, 2012
May 10 - 31, 2012
