"Plug in X Add on: a rehearsal of potential connections between two cities" Taiwan Contemporary Art Exhibition
"Plug in X Add on" offers the UK an exclusive look at the Taiwanese contemporary art scene, introducing young artists who were mostly born in the late ’70s and early ’80s, a time when Taiwan made the transition from manufacturing to high-tech industries.
"Plug in X Add on" is a concept that is inspired by computing practice, enabling third-party developers to transform and extend the function of host applications. Using such concept, the exhibition observes and experiments with the way young artists connect and adapt themselves to different cultures, societies and politics.
