Taipei Biennial: Gestures and Archives of the Present, Genealogies of the Future

Exhibition, Fine Arts Museum, Taipei, Taiwan.


Until February 5, 2017
The aim is to explore the museum’s catalytic role in navigating between knowledge systems and in the experience of trans-artistic practices and research in societal configurations that take into consideration cultural paradigm shifts. Treating the biennial as a matrix, an organic whole with its various forms, intensities, rhythms, and traces, the event engages “performing the archives, performing the architecture, performing the retrospective” and the invention of narrative apparatuses and reflexive images in relation to artistic productions and practices of thought with a firm grip on historical conditions and realities that play along with or resist realities to come, or whose advent is impossible.
