Female artists will take the center stage at the "Considerate Creations: Chameleons” group exhibition running from March 17 through April 28 at the Taipei Cultural Center in New York.
Curated by art manager Lee I-hua, the exhibition will focus on the hard work done behind the scenes that allow art projects to come to fruition. From videos and photographs to installations, the different aspects of an artist's life are very much part of the exhibition. Personal issues such as marital and filial relationships will also be explored.
Curator Lee, who works at Taipei Artist Village, is responsible for expanding this artistic dialogue from Taipei to New York. "Considerate Creations: Chameleons” will be showcased in two parts - a March show at the Taipei Cultural Center, and a June show at Gallery 456 of New York.
The first half will showcase New York-based artists Hu Nung-hsin, Chiu Yu-chen, and Wong Kit-yi. The latter half will introduce three new female Taiwanese artists.
Hu is a visual artist, art administrator, and graduate of Long Island University. She works across a multidisciplinary range of mediums, including sculptures, installations, videos, and performance arts, to redefine identity.
Chiu is a photographer and new media artist who studied at New York University, Cooper Union, and International Center of Photography. She photographs subjects associated with displacement, using landscapes and cityscapes to create a unique narrative.
Wong is a Yale graduate who is interested in space. Much of her work aims for locating, measuring, and quantifying the intangible. Her videos, sculptures, and performance-based projects have recently been censored by the Chinese Ministry of Culture (CMC) and banned from art shows in China.
Chameleon artists are defined as those who take on multiple roles to secure the opportunity to pursue their dreams. When administrators or other art professionals work as artists, everything involved in their job becomes equally fascinating as their art.
