Taiwan Contemporary Art Exhibition at the Culture Center of TECRO 
August 1 to November 30, 2018

         The Art Bank Taiwan and the Culture Center of TECRO (Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office) host an exhibition titled “What do you see?” to present three Taiwanese young-and-soaring artists’ works from August 1 to November 30, 2018. The exhibition offers a rare opportunity to showcase an avant-garde collection of paintings by young Taiwanese artists for the greater Washington metropolitan area. Admission is free. The exhibition location is at the Culture Center of TECRO (901 Wind River Lane, Gaithersburg, MD 20878).

         “What do you see?” is an exhibition that challenges the viewer’s perception of reality by contesting conventions in sight and language. The exhibition will present the selected works of Pei-Shih Tu, Teng-Yuan Chang and Yu-An Liao.

         Pei-Shih Tu often adopts a narrative filled with fantasies to respond to the conflicts and ridiculous nature of the real world in her works.

         Teng-Yuan Chang is skilled in deriving artistic inspiration from everyday objects, using painting, comic and animation devices to reflect upon our visual experiences in modern life.

         Yu-An Liao’s works are often filled with pop and cartoon elements and symbolize various psychological scenarios experienced in modern individual lives.

         This joint pursuit of cultural diplomacy began last December, and Taiwanese artworks have since traveled to the Taipei Cultural Center in New York and the Twin Oaks estate of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in the US.
