Erika Tan | Exhibition at Taipei Fine Arts Museum
In advance of her show at our partner venue Stanley Picker Gallery in Spring 2022, Stanley Picker Fellow Erika Tan is currently presenting elements of her fellowship project in Taiwan. Tan’s Stanley Picker fellowship project ‘Barang-Barang’ speculatively imagines a meeting between four female artists: Dora Gordine, Georgetta Chen, Kim Lim and the artist’s mother Fay Tan, and reflects upon the enduring historical and personal entanglements between the objects we inherit and the art histories we write. Her contribution to ‘Art Histories of a Forever War: Modernism between Space and Home’, curated by Kathleen DITZIG (Singapore) and HSU Fang-Tze (Taiwan), includes a multi-screen work filmed at Dorich House Museum. The exhibition uses the Cold War as a starting point to examine the impact of the Space Race and Asian modern art and design upon the Chinese Modern Art Movement from Taiwan and runs at Taipei Fine Arts Museum until 20 February 2022.
