Asian Art Biennial Releases Artist List for Seventh Edition

The seventh edition of the Asian Art Biennial, organized and hosted by the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts in Taichung and curated by multimedia artists Hsu Chia-Wei and Ho Tzu Nyen, has announced its full list of participating artists. Titled “The Strangers from Beyond the Mountain and the Sea,” the biennial will open on October 5 and take up themes of the international migration crisis, decolonization, Eastern philosophies, technology, and climate change.

For the curators, the title refers to not only “travellers from distant lands, but also spirits, gods, shamans, foreign merchants, immigrants, minorities, colonists, smugglers, partisans, spies and traitors.” Strangers, they continue, “are mediums, through which other worlds may be communicated [and who] have the potential to propel and transform the very foundations of our cultures.”
