Island-Tracing Journeys: 30 Years Retrospective Exhibition of the “Taiwan Project”

2022.10.29 - 2023.01.29 KMFA Galleries 301-305

Curator: LAI Ming-Chu
Participating Artists: CHEN Shui-Tsai, NI Tsai-Chin, LEE Jiun-Shyan and SU Chih-Che

The late 1980s was a period when modern art movement thrived in southern Taiwan. In June 1991, the “Taiwan Project” was jointly conceived and executed by Chen Shui-Tsai, Ni Tsai-Chin, and Lee Jiun-Shyan; the next year, Su Chih-Che joined the project. Within 10 years, the “Taiwan Project” conducted a total of 13 participatory exhibitions of art activity. During the period, the four artists also continued creating their own works. Through the stimulation and expansion of the four shared artistic concepts of “Marginal Consciousness,” “Dialects of the Land,” “Subjective Truth,” and “Diverse Dialogues,” the four artists completed creative works of visual art, in which “particular” and “universal” coexisted, through own unique subjective thinking and style. Curated by Professor Lai Ming-Chu, this exhibition will display more than 150 works and related precious documents of the four artists. Kaohsiung was the "Taiwan Project 2000 Concluding Exhibition" station of the "Taiwan Project" that year, so this travelling exhibition specifically ends at the Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts.
