Interview with CFCCA Director Zoe Dunbar and Associate Curator Lu Pei-yi, Micro Micro Revolution
The Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art (CFCCA) opens its gallery to environmentally and socially concerned artists in its latest exhibition, Micro Micro Revolution. Led by Associate Curator Lu Pei-yi, this new presentation explores the power of art as a vehicle to address social change in Taiwan through three socially-engaged art projects. These ongoing process-based, participative works address key environmental issues from the region including land-use, pollution and sustainability, and act as a form of resistance and a platform for exchange. We speak to CFCCA Director Zoe Dunbar and Pei-yi ahead of tonight’s preview launch to discuss the ideology behind the project and the challenges of curating artworks with a transitory nature.
