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.
From 3 July to 6 September 2015 the Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art (CFCCA) in Manchester, England, is presenting “Micro Micro Revolution” (2015), an immersive, interactive exhibition celebrating three socially-engaged art projects led by Taiwanese artists. Among its artists is Huang Po-Chih, who on 25 June 2015 was named on the shortlist of the HUGO BOSS ASIA ART: Award for Emerging Artists 2015.
