For its final event of 2019 that extends to 2020, TheCube Project Space is pleased to present STILL ALIVE, the solo exhibition by Malaysian artist Au Sow-Yee. This exhibition is scheduled to be on view from November 28, 2019 to January 19, 2020.
Treating “sound” as the medium and “broadcasting” as the technique, this project is intended to tackle the issue as to how artists respond to the contemporarily reconfigured relational networks between humanity and technology as well as among the multitudes who use the internet, given digital messages have become the primary vehicle for people’s emotions and connections today.
Seeing art as an alternative approach to produce knowledge, this exhibition has grown out from the project to focus on the collectives or communities that are formed for co-production (of art and/or alternative knowledge), as well as the active/resilient political subject with agency constructed during the processes of co-production through negotiating to reach common ideology. For this exhibition, the self-organizing political subject which co-produce art/alternative knowledge are what we rely on, as an “Unit of Interdepency”, to re-imagine an ideal society.
Co-organized by TheCube Project Space and Total Museum of Contemporary Art and curated by Amy Cheng and Nathalie Boseul Shin, the exhibition Towards Mysterious Realities will take place at Total Museum of Contemporary Art and Space 55 in Seoul, Korea from April 26, 2018 to June 24, 2018.
TheCube Project Space is pleased to present The War That Never Was—Solo Exhibition of Chang Chien-Chi from March 10 to April 29. As the debut of the third phase of the curatorial project Towards Mysterious Realities, this exhibition features not only Chang’s new video and photographic works based on his research into the Cold War, and the interview with his mother and, but also a set of sound installations that he created by appropriating George Orwell’s article You and the Atomic Bomb written in 1945.
The Ocean After Nature considers the ocean as a site reflecting the ecological, cultural, political, and economic realities of a globalized world through the work of twenty artists and collectives. These internationally established and emerging artists explore new ways of representing the seascape as a means to identify and critique the various interrelated and chaotic systems of power, such as land-sea divides, the circulation of people and goods, and the vulnerabilities of our ecosystems.
This exhibition in itself represents the achievements of two projects, namely the thematic lecture series at the 2016 Praxis School and Till We Have Faces, both were led by Huang Sun-Quan, a renowned social activist and cultural researcher.
