The ethereal spiritual world of contemporary Taiwan will be the focus of a new exhibition at the UBC Museum of Anthropology in Vancouver.
"(In)visible: The Spiritual World of Taiwan through Contemporary Art," will be displayed Nov. 20 to April 3. It’s organized by the museum’s new curator for Asia, Fuyubi Nakamura, an award-winning sociocultural anthropologist and author.
"(In)visible" features the work of seven contemporary Taiwanese artists who explore the
coexistence of modernity and tradition and who have earned international acclaim for their innovative approach to sharing the history, values and diverse cultures of Taiwan.
“The spiritual world is very much part of life and a source for creative inspiration in Taiwan,” says Nakamura.
“The compelling array of work on display will express and visualize the religious beliefs, myths and legends that are an inherent part of Taiwan’s urban and rural life cycles.”
