Post Document

In 2006, a new generation of artists tried to develop a new language that can be part of our every-day living, rather than restricted by unchangeable classical procedures. The clues of these can be tracked in the previous Taipei Biennials, like Great Theatre of the World,Do You Believe in Reality?, and also Dirty Yoga in 2006.

    One Work Exhibition Project

    Our One Work Exhibition Project perpetuates the objective (spirit/aim) with which Open-Contemporary Art Center was founded. We introduce contemporary artists who possess a creative vocabulary by having them participate in year-round alternative exhibitions, in which a single piece is exhibited at a time. We invite curators to select the works of five or six artists for every exhibition — each lasting from Tuesday to Thursday. During the exhibition,  artists conduct dialogues with the audience by inviting them to speak. Through conversing with other artists, the creators may re-examine their works. Also, following the conclusion of all exhibitions, we will invite professional art critics along will all participating artists to hold a large seminar concerning the project series.
