Outside In: New Realms for Taiwan Art (2/19-3/12)

  • Location:
    New York

The Weatherhead East Asian Institute, Columbia University announces the opening of a contemporary art exhibit, Outside In: New Realms for Taiwan Art, featuring ten artists from Taiwan.

Outside In takes a broad look at what it means to be a Taiwan artist in the art world today. Often driven to urban centers of the United States in order to find recognition for their work, Taiwan artists express their contemporary interests and concerns in a variety of traditional and cutting-edge media. The artists chosen for this particular exhibit deal with a wide range of subject matter including ethnicity, gender, mass consumption, and the environment. Their work, simultaneously innovative and mindful of a collective past, will serve to initiate discussions on Taiwan art in an international setting

Presented in conjunction with the Columbia Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures and Columbia student groups: Asian Pacific Affairs Council, Greater China Initiative, Taiwan Focus, and the Weatherhead Undergraduate Council.
