Starting from the Island: Contemporary Art From Taiwan

Starting from the Island is an exhibit by four artists from Taiwan who connect their life experiences and environmental observations. The artists compare and contrast local with global, and cities with mountains. Their work sparks discussions that stretch from where they live to phenomena in the society and in the world. Their artwork is a conversation with their external environment and the viewers through their art creation. See this exhibit at the IA&A at Hillyer through September 29.
