Asia Art Center will participate in the art fair 2023 Taipei Dangdai Art & Ideas, showcasing 13 artists from Taiwan, China, Spain, Israel, the UK, and the US at C12 booth in the Galleries Sector. Rooted in the context of new Eastern aesthetics, the presentation will concurrently feature contemporary artworks from Europe, America, and Taiwan.

Ju Ming’s (1938-2023) “Living World Series” wooden sculptures are an exploration of human life, presenting rich colors and forms. Among them, the “white” series is particularly special, opening up more space for interpretation and imagination to the viewer in its extreme freedom of transformation. “Living World Series – Ballet” wraps the polished stainless steel body in a ballet costume, presenting the dancer’s thoughts and emotions, dancing with elegant spatial dimensions. These works reflect Ju Ming’s emotions towards the harmony of life and the existence of all things. On the other hand, artists Walasse TING (1929-2010), CHUANG Che (1934-), PANG Jiun (1936-), YANG Chihung (1947-), and LI Chen (1963-) incorporate their understanding and thoughts on Eastern aesthetics into their works, integrating East and West and developing their unique artistic languages.

In addition, Asia Art Center continues to promote our long-term plan for the global art scene, bringing emerging and established artists who are receiving attention in the international contemporary art world, including Alejandro Acosta (Spain, 1991-), Carlo D’Anselmi (USA, 1999-), Freya Douglas-Morris (UK, 1980-), Florence Hutchings (UK, 1996-), Kayla Mattes (USA, 1989-), Guy Yanai (Israel, 1977-), and Crystal Lupa (Taiwan, 1989-). Artists from different backgrounds and life experiences interpret philosophy, daily life, and the interaction between humans and nature in their own visual vocabulary and narrative style.
