Undefined・Five New Talents in Taiwanese Visual Art


Oct 27, 2021

Taiwan's openness and diversity not only accommodates the freedom of development of local artists, but also attract artists from other parts of Asia to study, exchange and practice. In Taiwan's visual industry, where American and Japanese thinking is the mainstream, they engage in a creative practice originating from their own varied contexts.

In this lecture, TPadd assoc., chairman Hsing-Kai Peng introduces how five visual workers from Taiwan, Indonesia, and Macau, between the ages of 24 and 28, who are active in the field of art and literature in Taiwan, inherit the cultural codes of Taiwan in the 1970s and 1980s in an avant-garde and raw methodology and develop a blueprint for Taiwan’s visual culture. Peng Xingkai, using London artist Jesse Kanda, arrives at a new starting point for contemporary graphic art to explain how the “religiousness” in works has brought about a decentralized transformation after the exchange of contemporary artists and works.

Interviewed artists:
Dora Huang (Macau), Felix Onorato (Indonesia), Yaode Jn (Taiwan), Hanyu Fong (Taiwan), Kaynken Chen (Taiwan).
