A total of 22 unique artworks by 19 young-and-upcoming Taiwanese artists has been shipped to Japan for the Art Bank’s first-ever overseas display.
The exhibition titled "Silent Time" opened on Sept. 18 at the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in Tokyo, and will run through Sept. 15, 2015 as part of the government's efforts to enhance bilateral ties.
The 22 artworks include calligraphy by Lien Jui-fen (連瑞芬) and Liao Wen-hao’s (廖文豪) ink wash paintings, as well as Isa Ho’s (何孟娟) and Liu Yun-yi’s (劉芸怡) digital photography works.
Established last year and headquartered in central Taiwan, the Art Bank is one of the flagship projects supervised by the Ministry of Culture. By purchasing artworks from young Taiwanese artists, the Art Bank sells or loans its collections to private companies, government agencies, and willing individuals to give the artists more exposure.
