Hues Across 23.5°N Art Exhibit
Hues Across 23.5°N: Chen Cheng-po and his journey across borders is an exhibition featuring paintings by Chen Cheng-po, an artist who began his career in the Japanese ruling period of Taiwan, from 1895 to 1945. Chen’s works represent a colonial intellectual’s engagement and response to the hybrid, multifaceted modernity of his time, which involves the interplay of Taiwanese local colors and transnational techniques through the artist’s border-crossing experiences in the 1920's and 1930's.
The exhibition is held from April 6-22 at two venues (with different sets of paintings): Red Gym at UW-Madison (716 Langdon Street) and Madison Senior Center (330 West Mifflin Street; Weekdays, ONLY).
