National Dr. Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall in Taipei is holding the "Tracing the roots through sculpture: Pu Tian-Sheng 110th birthday memorial exhibition (塑×溯─蒲添生110雕塑紀念展)" from Aug. 20 through Oct. 19 at the Chung-Shan National Gallery.
Pu Tien-sheng (蒲添生) was a well-known Taiwanese sculptor who had created numerous works throughout his life. To commemorate his 110th birthday anniversary, National Dr. Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall invited family members of the late sculptor to jointly organize this memorial exhibition, showcasing a complete exhibition of Pu's representative works from different periods.
The exhibited works include the "Lin Ching-chuan memorial statue (林靖娟老師紀念像)," a large-scale sculpture made to honor the kindergarten teacher. It was completed by Pu despite his illness, which symbolizes his life-long dedication to art creation.
In addition to the exhibition, five sessions of forums will be held to discuss the works of Pu. One of the sessions will be attended by the sculptor’s sons Pu Hao-ming (蒲浩明) and Pu Hao-chih (蒲浩志), who is also the curator of the exhibition.
National Dr. Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall will continue to take necessary precautionary measures. All visitors are required to wear a surgical mask at all times, have their temperatures measured, disinfect hands and abstain from eating within the premises. Real-name registration will be implemented, and visitors will only be able to access the museum through its single main entrance.
