• Apocalypse - Zhao Bo Solo Exhibition

    Jun 04 - Jun 26, 2011

    Between winters and summers, a crowd of young artists sprout. They are called “the 80s”. They, who was born after 1980, act and live like Zhao Bo said. In short, they are innocent. They care about freedom, truth, environment and the mental status of theirs or even public’s. They speak no great speech nor chase the success which made by public media. They simply keep the instinct of life purely and naively. The creations of “The 80s-artists” are presenting the purity and truth under the bottom of their heart.

  • As Long As Rainbow Lasts - Japanese Contemporary Artists Group Exhibition

    Apr 30 - May 29, 2011

    The Japanese view rainbows as transitory moments in time, like the passing of a shooting star. In this context, the “As Long as Rainbows Last” exhibition deliberately chose rainbows as a motif because the sense of value in this area is less well defined. The exhibition focuses on expressionism in contemporary Japanese art through three sub themes; “Loss and Others” , “Tangible and Intangible” , “Culture and Sub-Culture.” At the same time, it also showcases artists who address the issue of traditional artistic values, thereby reflecting the changing values of Japanese society, whilst also discussing the meaning of the values that underpin art in general.
