The Frost Art Museum. Taiwan Discovered: In Place and Time

From Feb 19th through May 16th, 2010

altTaiwan Discovered: In Place and Time continues The Frost Art Museum’s foray into the world of Asian Art. “This exhibition showcases true Taiwanese contemporary artists,” said Dr. Carol Damian, director and chief curator of The Frost Art Museum. “It is the first of its kind in the region.”

Taiwan Discovered: In Place and Time was curated in-house by Director Carol Damian and Catalina Jaramillo. The exhibition showcases Taiwanese contemporary artists: mixing traditional and contemporary, Asian and Western, local and international. Taiwan’s artists are exploring different approaches and developing their own unique styles through a wide variety of media, from painting and rock art to multimedia installations.

Also on view at the Museum is the exhibition In Body and Soul: The Performance Art of Maria Teresa Hincapié. Curated by Francine Birbragher, this show examines the work of Maria Teresa Hincapié, a well-known avant-garde Colombian performance artist. A tribute to one of the most important figures of performance art in Latin America, the exhibition presents a selection of videos and photographs documenting some of the artist’s works, and serves as a testimony of her contribution to the genre.
