Jie (Boundaries): Contemporary Art from Taiwan

By DANNI SHEN

Nowhere is the language of globalization as critical, nowhere is there as much at stake, as in Taiwan. In the advent of a neo-colonial digital age, the interconnected 21st century has wrought more complex boundaries than ever before. The multiple changes the country has undergone over the last decade have also served as significant sources for artistic creations, many of which will be on display in the new Johnson Museum-sponsored exhibition Jie (Boundaries): Contemporary Art from Taiwan. An interview with exhibition curator and Cornell Prof. An-Yi Pan, art history, give an in-depth look into how younger generations of artists in Taiwan reveal the effects of globalization on individual life and the intimate realm — a past, present and future “tinged with both playfulness and anxiety.”
