Connected to their experiences in New York, the artists have created works that reference the city’s challenges and juxtapositions: solitude within intimacy, comfort within states of transition, and the impulse to follow the “American Dream.” The artworks in the exhibition consider moments of growth and passage, through love, memory, new beginnings, and piecing together private emotions in a material form. Two works by Chen An-An, Rubbing/Loving and There is Sweet in Between are included in the exhibition. Prior to the opening, Chen will install Rubbing/Loving, a rectangular charcoal wall drawing rubbed directly onto the wall, with her love, artist J Triangular. The title is taken from an artwork by Do Ho Suh, which Chen references and relocates into a queer context.

Taipei Cultural Center is pleased to announce that two artists from Taiwan, Ms. Joyce Ho and Yin-Ju Chen, have been invited to present their new projects at 2017 Asia Contemporary Art Week Field Meeting Oct. 14 and 15. Introduced as the signature program of ACAW in 2014, Field Meeting is an exhibition in the form of a two-day forum, centered around the medium of lecture-performance. The program invites up 30-plus artists and arts professionals to develop and present their new projects to an exclusive audience of over 300 U.S.-based curators, scholars, and museum professionals. Joyce Ho will present a “lecture performance” titled “A Day at ACAW” at this year’s field meeting. For her recent practice, she has been experienced with performances/installations that attach to our familiar experience of life: cycles, relationships, rituals, dialogues, spaces, events…Its foundation is laid on our perceptions of everyday situations. This connects time with our everyday relationships to space, events, people, and rituals, and seeks to break through the temporal aspects usually involved in performance and viewing artworks. Time then becomes a clue about the performance/space, a suggestive reminder. In the midst of all these regularities that surround us, it serves to magnify and even to …
