NEW YORK, NY.- The Taipei Cultural Center in New York is presenting Shiting Momentum, a world-premiere exhibition curated by Bor-Jou Kuo and Chung-Fan Chang that features abstract paintings and mixed media works by twelve mid-career and established Taiwanese artists. The show, marked the first survey of abstract art exhibition is on view at 1 East 42rd Street, New York, NY 10017 from March 8th through 30th, 2018.

Supported by the Ministry of Culture, R.O.C. (Taiwan), Shiting Momentum is organized by Taipei National University of Education in Taipei, Taiwan; Stockton University in Galloway, New Jersey; and Taiwan Academy in New York, New York. The exhibition features fifteen works from eight Taiwan based artists Ming-Xi Chang, Yu-Ju Chen, Bor-Jou Kuo, Shiou-Ping Liao, Wei-Min Lin, Yung-Jen Liu, Rock Chin-Yuan Shen and Wen-Yueh Tao, along with four United State based Taiwanese artists Chung-Fan Chang, Su-Li Hung, Shiao-Ping Wang and ChiHung Yang. The exhibition jointly presents works of American artists Lucy Glick and Robert Motherwell from the permanent collection of the Noyes Museum of Art of Stockton University.

Shifting Momentum presents the development of the constantly changing abstract art in the Taiwanese art world, from the eighties to today. The works in this exhibition span a wide range of techniques, styles, and intentions, which has been the kind of self-analysis that required a balance between the rational and the intuited to bond artists in this frequently shifting art domain. Influenced by the Western modernism, artists address Eastern cultural, philosophy and traditions in subjects like ch’i (energy flow), ink calligraphy, huxi (breathing or to breathe), Han Dynasty tomb bricks and traditional window frames that often have people’s wishes and blessings engraved onto. Artists reflect the liberal and slowly opened state of Taiwanese society after the lifting of 38 years of martial law (1949-1987) in juxtaposition to the now digitized hyper accelerated life.

In conjunction with Asia Week New York, Shifting Momentum aims to celebrate Asian Art and encourage viewers to have a physical, often prolonged, encounter in front of each work that is culturally rooted in the East. Through close examinations of these techniques and expressions that one may gradually discover a range of interpretation of the self and the core of existence.
