Taiwan Contemporary Art Show at the Culture Center of TECRO from August 1 to November 30, 2018

Supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of China (Taiwan), the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in the United States (TECRO), the Art Bank Taiwan, and the Culture Center of TECRO (901 Wind River Lane, Gaithersburg, MD 20878) will host an exhibition titled “What do you see?” to present three Taiwan young-and-upcoming artists’ works from August 1 to November 30, 2018. The exhibition offers a rare opportunity to showcase an avant-garde collection of paintings by Taiwan young artists for viewers from the greater Washington metropolitan area. Admission is free.

“What do you see?” is an exhibition that challenges the viewer’s perception of reality by contesting conventions in sight and language. The exhibition will present the selected works of Pei-Shih Tu, Teng-Yuan Chang and Yu-An Liao.

Pei-Shih Tu often adopts a narrative filled with fantasies to respond to the conflicts and ridiculous nature of the real world in her works.

Teng-Yuan Chang is skilled in deriving artistic inspiration from everyday objects, using painting, comic and animation devices to reflect upon our visual experiences in modern life.

Yu-An Liao’s works are often filled with pop and cartoon elements and symbolize various psychological scenarios experienced in modern individual lives.

The four-month event is curated by Art Bank Taiwan as part of a pioneering collaboration between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of China (Taiwan).

This joint pursuit of cultural diplomacy began last December, and Taiwanese artworks have since traveled to the Taipei Cultural Center in New York and the Twin Oaks estate of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in the US.
