    Fu Wenjun Oil Painting Exhibition

    01 Nov 2021 – 31 Dec 2021

    This exhibition presents two series of oil paintings created by the artist Fu Wenjun, "Pick at Random" and "Quiet Leisure". These two series are cross-cultural practices that the artist has made for many years under a multicultural background, showing the artist's understanding and interpretation of the connotation of traditional Chinese culture in the context of modern life. Under the concept of "harmonizing Chinese and Western", Fu Wenjun uses post-modern deconstruction, appropriation and juxtaposition to "reconcile" traditional Chinese ink and western oil painting in many ways. Without changing the structure of pen and ink language, traditional culture is placed in the category of international art. He uses Chinese traditional freehand and Western classical realism as the basic techniques of artistic expression, giving the painting a visual effect between virtual and reality, and fully interprets his creative intentions with a transversal visual perception. He believes that he should have a peaceful and introverted mentality and in-depth look at the connotation of traditional culture instead of living in the imagination of it. Slow down and grasp the connotation of tradition in mutual and repeated encounters. In Fu Wenjun’s view, “The essence of tradition is like the cloud in my paintings. It has undergone countless changes in form over time, but its essence has not changed. What has changed is only the viewer’s thoughts and understanding."

    REWRITE REALITY

    20 Mar 2021 – 17 Apr 2021

    Our lives are being rewritten almost every day. All kinds of inventions, new technologies are rapidly produced on a daily basis and are continuously applied to human life. It is even more obvious now when the pandemic continues to spread. As many people have to stay at home, virtual experiences such as online shopping, online chatting, and video conferencing become a major life trend quickly, giving resolutions to people's problems. The vaccination that people call for is becoming a reality in 2021, bringing hope to overcome the disease. Can the rewriting of these lifestyles make human beings happier? How does our mind adapt to the life that is constantly being rewritten? Faced with the continually changing world, will the expectations for the future be rewritten accordingly? Under the expectation-satisfaction cycle, can human beings be truly satisfied, or just live as an insatiable desire machine? Artists: Acquaetta Williams, Buoyi Sun, Low Winter Sun, Donna Garcia, Kate Brogdon, Liyu Xue, Maggie Xin Wen, Masaharu Imamiya, Rebekah Okpoti, Sophia Muller, Stefan Zausinger, Syl Arena, Trevor Coopersmith, Victor Cuzmenco, Zahava Sherez

    Beyond Human Power

    26 Dec 2020 – 23 Jan 2021

    The continuous spread of the novel coronavirus and the emotions it has caused have become the most direct and vivid explanation of force majeure, something beyond the control of human power. In most cases, the first thing that people think of is ruthless nature. The virus is an invasion of aliens and yet is not caused by nature alone. Its development involves human economic and social activities. In the end, our bodies will inevitably suffer the most from the things beyond human power. We invite 10 artists worldwide to use their unique artistic creations to make their voices heard in this particular period and context. Artists: A.M. Benz, Adam Hudec, Andrew Orloski, Aurelie Crisetig, Benjamin Siegenthaler, Chanell Angeli, Cherrie Yu, Sebastiano Navarra, TOTTO, Tori Foster To visit the exhibition at https://www.independentimage.org/

    The World Is Flat

    08 Aug 2020 – 05 Sep 2020

    From August 8 to September 5, 2020, Independent & Image Art Space presents the group exhibition “The World Is Flat”. Nine artists worldwide respond to the theme of "the world is flat", expressing their ideas with the works of art and expecting to inspire more people to think. In 2005, Thomas L. Friedman's best-selling book, "The World Is Flat" made the term "globalization" a household name. The fast and convenient communication network, air transportation, and trade exchanges that human society has today are more closely connected with people living in different countries and regions than ever before. However, the interconnected, "flat" world has also exacerbated humankind's challenges, such as global climate change and environmental issues. Another example is that today, 15 years later, close human interaction has become a significant factor in the rapid spread of COVID-19 worldwide.
