  • Lee Shi-Chi was a towering figure of contemporary arts. He was innovative and experimental, making him one of the most influential artists in the history of contemporary Taiwanese arts in the Post-war era. As we approach the third anniversary of Master Lee’s passing, New Taipei City Cultural Affairs Bureau collaborated with the New Taipei City Art Museum’s Preparatory Office to launch this exhibition. The exhibition has been coordinated by Master Lee’s widow and daughter, Ms. Gu Yue and Ms. Lee Tian-Xin, and is curated by Professor Hsiao Chong-Ray. This is a tribute to Master Lee’s extraordinary career and his dedication to artistic creation.
    Master Lee’s works are refined by classical Eastern tradition and twentieth-century Western philosophy. Lee’s body of works range from ink, abstract calligraphy, painting, combined media to even installation arts. Lee also collaborated with contemporary poets and developed his signature style through breaking the boundaries of media, techniques and subjects. This approach to artworks earned him countless prizes and recognition from the international community. The term, ‘color-bird artist’ was coined by the contemporary art world to describe his unique style.
    In order to provide a comprehensive perspective of Master Lee’s work, the New Taipei City Cultural Affairs Bureau allocated two separate venues for this exhibition, one in Xinzhuang Cultural Arts Center and the other in New Taipei City Arts Center. We are also taking the exhibition online for you to see it from all 360° angles. There also will be multiple workshops and programs during weekends for you to participate, taking you through the dazzling world of Master Lee.

  • In 2022, Fuzhong 15 decides to focus on the theme “Changing.” We would like to highlight the recent development of digital media and technology. Through media, artists capture the changes that has occurred in our environment. The incorporation of “diverse film practices” and introducing technology art enables us to understand the recent change in digital arts, and the changes in our relationship with nature, with the broader community. This exhibition provides a new perspective to the contemporary world. Here, the artists use the traditional media to capture the nature, and the digital technology to emulate the nature. Our three greatest highlights include:
    In Algal Reef, Yannick Dauby documents Taiwan’s underwater flora and fauna and the change of their environment.
    In the “Natural Protection Project” series, Fablab Dynamic campaigns for the innovative projects that can meet the society’s needs while allowing the local communities to develop.
    In Forest with Water Sound, noiseKitchen Art Co.,Ltd. emulates the natural environment through machines and interactive devices. You will be surprised by this artificial “nature.”
    This exhibition has taken into consideration of United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We invite artists who share our mission and explore their innovation and creation via digital media and tools. We want to emphasize the importance of sustainability and SDGs. In collaboration we will achieve a “sustainable and visionary future.”
