Artist Making Movement

El Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes de Taiwán (NTMoFA) presenta la 5a Bienal de Arte Asiático desde el 19 de septiembre al 6 de diciembre 2015. Bajo dirección de la curadora Ms. Iris Huang, la Bienal propone el tema Artist Making Movement. Refleja la agitación e inestabilidad observada en la sociedades asiáticas hoy día, con aquellos ansiosos movimientos que provienen de la percepción de descontento general de la gente, la disipación de las pequeñas alegrías y la falla de los tradicionales mecanismos de seguridad. Las instituciones existentes ya no pueden enfrentar los desafíos de la realidad, produciendo fenómenos que revelan el estado actual de la cultura contemporánea asiática, que se encuentra en medio de la reformación de su sistema de regulación de la vida cotidiana, a partir de un nuevo orden de relaciones e intentos dirigidos a subvertir la distribución del poder social.

NTMoFA has always departed from a social perspective that deals with Asia’s reality in life, exploring the diversity, conflicts, compatibility in Asian culture and art. Art’s connection with the everyday life is understood from a realistic foundation, inspiring diverse discussions. Toda’s Asia is no longer merely a singular and rigid geographical region. Due to contemporary globalized socioeconomic developments, Asia has become a mobile cultural concept, with migrating population, fluid capital, and impact from different cultures. With its moving borders, Asia’s external relations and internal irony will continue to be self-challenged, revealing that Asia’s reality and cultural perspective are facing expansion and separation, with art shifting from its former static mode to a more active, dynamic process that deals with the problems. Artist Making Movement is used to evoke possibilities of initiation, subversion, rearrangement, and construction, attempting to open up a possible space for actualization from cracks and fissures. Shifting from a preexisting position, the next step taken is to use the imagination applied in art making to actively engage in discussions and contributions for future proposals.

This biennial includes 28 contributing artists and groups from 17 different Asian regions/countries, with artworks dealing with Asia’s current institutions, human rights, and other problems amidst its moving borders. With increasingly frequent and intense socioeconomic developments and cross-border relations both within Asian countries, and transnationally, these shifting exchanges are drastically challenging preceding viewpoints and orders, and a mobile state with aligning thoughts and actions has become an assertive approach for dealing with the current reality. Problems and the creative environment in Asia faced by artists are cross-cultural and exist in a cultural domain composed of a plethora of divergences.

In addition to the exhibition, Asian art and curatorial symposiums were held on the weekend following the opening, with scholars invited to conduct discussions on the subject of Asia’s cultural diversity.
