Four Vietnamese artists will be participating in the 10th Taipei Biennial this year. Curated by Corinne Diserens, the exhibition explores the main theme of “Gestures and Archives of the Present, Genealogies of the Future”.
The Taipei Biennial 2016 proposes to explore different practices of thought, the invention of discursive and performative apparatuses, and the production of models and images leading to heterogeneous narrations allowing trans-disciplinary artistic experiences bound to a ‘critical intimacy’ between the artwork and the visitor.
The biennial’s configuration will encompass visual arts, dance, performance, cinema, and writing with historical evocations, editorial platforms, symposiums, and workshops to take place in the museum as well as in cultural venues, theaters and the universities of Taipei as a means to establish collaborations and stimulate a local synergy.
The Taipei Biennial is the most important exhibition for promoting contemporary art held by the Taipei Fine Arts Museum.
