A joint exhibition portraying the absurdity of contemporary life and society through the eyes of 12 young Taiwanese artists will run in Las Vegas from Sept. 1 through 30.
"KUSO Project,” named after the Taiwanese netizen term for all things outrageous and funny, takes an absurdist approach to the Taiwan's kuso culture and the spread of globalization via internet.
As members of the digital generation, featured artists like Isa Ho (何孟娟), Huang Hsin-chien (黃心健), and Hsu Ruey-hsiann (徐瑞憲) mine the internet for camp and parody. The resulting paintings, photographs, sculptures, videos, and interactive installations reflect the cultural phenomenon of today's online world.
The resourceful vitality of Taiwan's active young artists, which led to the Vegas Seven to comment "kids these days are so creative,” will be displayed at the Donna Beam Fine Art Gallery on the University of Nevada's Las Vegas campus through Sept. 30. The exhibition is admission-free.
