2015 APAP Assembled Realities: Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao’s New York. An afternoon of passionate TANGO Taiwanese Artists in Residencies film
LATEST NEWS/EVENTS

Museum of the City of New York and Taipei Cultural Center of TECO in New York is very pleased to co-present Assembled Realities: Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao’s New York features more than 40 works by this Taiwanese artist, who came to New York at 18 to study photography. Pushing the boundaries of traditional documentary photography, Liao (b. 1977) creates large-scale panoramas by combining multiple exposures of the same location taken over the course of several hours. The resulting composite photographs are often fantastical; complex, hyper-real views that no single shot—or the eye—could capture. Liao has spent the past decade honing his distinctive style, making images of his adopted city from the Grand Concourse to Coney Island, the old Shea Stadium to the 72nd Street Subway. JEFF CHIEN-HSING LIAO (b. 1977 Taiwan) is a Taiwanese-born photographer now based in New York City, where he earned an MFA from the School of Visual Arts and a BFA from the Pratt Institute. He is the first prize winner of the New York Times “Capture the Times” photo contest. Liao’s work has been featured in several solo and group exhibitions, and is represented by private and public collections, including JGS Inc. Foundation, Museum of Fine …
