Taipei Biennial 2010

Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Taipei

The 7th edition

comunicato stampa

curated by Hongjohn Lin, Tirdad Zolghadr

TB10 is reconsidering the biennial format through a number of structural proposals. Although we have no curatorial master plan to scream from the rooftops, a potential leitmotif is the question of what is distinctive of biennials today. What are the conditions of production a biennial creates, what can you do with a biennial that you cannot do with anything else.

Some working premises are as follows

• TB08 Revisited: Avoiding the usual tabula rasa, TB10 will build on ideas and projects from previous Taipei Biennials. For example, a number of TB 2008 artists are invited to critically revisit their previous contributions.

• Two More Years: Artists first approached for TB10 were involved in a wider curatorial discussion. This resulted in a transfiguration of TB10 into a two year process, leading to a series of smaller exhibitions 2012. The process will be sustained by an academic framework that is currently being finalized, ideally resulting in sustainable art-pedagogical infrastructure. Our partner is the Taipei Contemporary Art Center, a venue which actually began as a commissioned artwork by Jun Yang for TB 2008.

• The Show: is deliberately restricted to 23 featured artists. Among the 37 artworks, nearly half are new commissions, many more are ambitious adaptations of older work. Much of the work is process-oriented, and a third is collaborative in some manner, with some 50 further artists being included via such collaborations.

• Sputniks: Three critical companions are invited to consistently produce unsparing feedback, also amounting to interventions during TB10. The exercise hopes to upend the polarity of the corrupt intellectual vs innocent autonomy.

• September Events: The ambitious events program will kick off before the exhibition, offering a more composite timeline than usual.

• Artist Cinema: The screening program includes 35 films by 31 artists. The artist-designed cinema contraption offers the viewing conditions of a movie theatre.

• Lecture Theater: Actors and actresses enact essays written by art critics and scholar. A performative effect and translational gaps are added to the original text for the local audience.

• Taipei Art Spaces: Eights Taipei venues have articulated various levels of collaboration. These are neither parallel programs nor curated contributions, but unpredictable interfaces adopting different savors and criteria from case to case.
