The Culture Center of TECRO will host an exhibition titled “What do you see?” to present three Taiwan young-and-upcoming artists’ works. The exhibition offers a rare opportunity to showcase an avant-garde collection of paintings by Taiwan young artists for viewers from the greater Washington metropolitan area. Admission is free.“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.The four-month event is supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of China (Taiwan), the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in the United States (TECRO), and the Art Bank Taiwan.

Curator’s Statement Day of the Dead signifies a time in which communities come together to remember their loved ones—the ways in which that is done varies across traditional lines. To an uneducated public, it has become synonymous with Mexico seen only as candied skulls and skeleton painted faces that are often confused with an offensive Halloween costume. Not only is it experienced differently across Mexico, but it is also celebrated throughout Latin America, dating back to pre-colonization. This exhibition aims to reclaim this holiday that been gentrified, repackaged as décor, and sold in party stores across the United States. The culture, identity and experiences of these artists are not for sale.The artists selected for this exhibition come from a new generation, giving a current perspective of what this time means to them as Latin American artists living in the United States. These artists will express their own perspective of death while also discerning the separation and/or connection with the tradition itself as generations shift, change, and grow. Acknowledging the seeds planted many moons ago by their ancestors, it is through their work that they will bring back the authenticity of Day of the Dead to a space that now includes them. In this exhibition artists will discern, contemplate, mourn, and remember in order to process, heal, and express their own truth.—Laura IreneDeclaración del Curador El Día de los Muertos es la ocasión en la cual las comunidades se reúnen para recordar a sus seres queridos, y lo hacen de diferentes maneras a través de las líneas tradicionales. Para el público desinformado, este día se ha convertido en sinónimo de México visto únicamente como cráneos azucarados y caras pintadas de esqueletos que a menudo se confunden con disfraces ofensivos de Halloween. Este día no solo se vive de manera diferente en todo México, sino que también se celebra en toda América Latina desde la precolonización. Esta exposición tiene como objetivo recuperar esta celebración que ha sido aburguesada, reinventada como decoración y vendida en tiendas de artículos para fiestas, en todos los Estados Unidos. La cultura, la identidad y las experiencias de estos artistas no están en venta.Los artistas seleccionados para esta exhibición provienen de una nueva generación, y dan una perspectiva actual de lo que esta celebración significa para ellos como artistas latinoamericanos que viven en los Estados Unidos. Estos artistas expresarán su propia perspectiva de la muerte, a la vez que discernirán la separación y/o la conexión con la tradición misma, a medida que las generaciones pasan, cambian y evolucionan. Reconociendo las semillas plantadas hace muchas lunas por sus antepasados, estos artistas recuperarán, a través de su trabajo, la autenticidad del Día de los Muertos en un espacio que ahora los incluye. En esta exposición, los artistas discernirán, contemplarán, harán el duelo y recordarán, con el fin de procesar, sanar y expresar su propia verdad.—Laura Irene [less-]

The Culture Center of TECRO will host an exhibition titled “What do you see?” to present three Taiwan young-and-upcoming artists’ works. The exhibition offers a rare opportunity to showcase an avant-garde collection of paintings by Taiwan young artists for viewers from the greater Washington metropolitan area. Admission is free.“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.The four-month event is supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of China (Taiwan), the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in the United States (TECRO), and the Art Bank Taiwan.

Curator’s Statement Day of the Dead signifies a time in which communities come together to remember their loved ones—the ways in which that is done varies across traditional lines. To an uneducated public, it has become synonymous with Mexico seen only as candied skulls and skeleton painted faces that are often confused with an offensive Halloween costume. Not only is it experienced differently across Mexico, but it is also celebrated throughout Latin America, dating back to pre-colonization. This exhibition aims to reclaim this holiday that been gentrified, repackaged as décor, and sold in party stores across the United States. The culture, identity and experiences of these artists are not for sale.The artists selected for this exhibition come from a new generation, giving a current perspective of what this time means to them as Latin American artists living in the United States. These artists will express their own perspective of death while also discerning the separation and/or connection with the tradition itself as generations shift, change, and grow. Acknowledging the seeds planted many moons ago by their ancestors, it is through their work that they will bring back the authenticity of Day of the Dead to a space that now includes them. In this exhibition artists will discern, contemplate, mourn, and remember in order to process, heal, and express their own truth.—Laura IreneDeclaración del Curador El Día de los Muertos es la ocasión en la cual las comunidades se reúnen para recordar a sus seres queridos, y lo hacen de diferentes maneras a través de las líneas tradicionales. Para el público desinformado, este día se ha convertido en sinónimo de México visto únicamente como cráneos azucarados y caras pintadas de esqueletos que a menudo se confunden con disfraces ofensivos de Halloween. Este día no solo se vive de manera diferente en todo México, sino que también se celebra en toda América Latina desde la precolonización. Esta exposición tiene como objetivo recuperar esta celebración que ha sido aburguesada, reinventada como decoración y vendida en tiendas de artículos para fiestas, en todos los Estados Unidos. La cultura, la identidad y las experiencias de estos artistas no están en venta.Los artistas seleccionados para esta exhibición provienen de una nueva generación, y dan una perspectiva actual de lo que esta celebración significa para ellos como artistas latinoamericanos que viven en los Estados Unidos. Estos artistas expresarán su propia perspectiva de la muerte, a la vez que discernirán la separación y/o la conexión con la tradición misma, a medida que las generaciones pasan, cambian y evolucionan. Reconociendo las semillas plantadas hace muchas lunas por sus antepasados, estos artistas recuperarán, a través de su trabajo, la autenticidad del Día de los Muertos en un espacio que ahora los incluye. En esta exposición, los artistas discernirán, contemplarán, harán el duelo y recordarán, con el fin de procesar, sanar y expresar su propia verdad.—Laura Irene [less-]
