Where the River Twists

Taipei: Jan 18 — Jan 27 2019

Press Release

Wang­sim presents its first trav­el­ing exhib­i­tion Where the River Twists in Taipei’s his­tor­ic­al Song­shan Dis­trict. The ambi­tious group exhib­i­tion of 16 artists show­cases a wide range of import­ant art­works from two major art move­ments, Min­im­al­ism and Pop Art. While explor­ing the most cel­eb­rated names in both “camps” with audi­ence from Taiwan and bey­ond, the show also boasts a present­a­tion fea­tur­ing sev­er­al import­ant European abstract paint­ers and Pop artists, whose works have not only cham­pioned mul­tiple res­on­at­ing European art move­ments, but also cel­eb­rated a highly pro­duct­ive, more flu­id post-war art world. The exhib­i­tion also debuts the first encounter of the Chinese artist Liu Jian­hua and the late Bel­gian con­cep­tu­al artist Wal­ter Leb­lanc, and high­lights points of their mutu­al approaches to art mak­ing and inter­act­ing with space.
