Asian Art Biennial 2015

Artist Making Movement

9 September – 6 December 2015

National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts
Taichung, Taiwan

Curator: Iris Shu-Ping HUANG

The theme of 2015 Asian Art Biennial reflects on the restlessness and instability observed in today’s Asian society, with these anxious movements coming from people’s feelings of discontent with life, dissipation of the so-called small happiness, a sense of comfort zone, and also security mechanism failures.
