Curated and produced by ICI, co-organised by TheCube Project Space, Notes for Tomorrow—Southern Taipei Version featured the works by a total of 35 curators and 34 artists / collectives from around the world. The curatorial philosophy behind this exhibition was to respond to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the world and reflect on the instability and unknown state caused by the pandemic. Through a renewed focus and discussion on the life experiences, local cultures, colonial histories, as well as current issues about life and survival in different places, this exhibition not only resumed the human exploration of sustainability and shared wisdom, but also galvanized the viewers to re-envisage a new global future. For the first time, TheCube Project Space was collaborating with eight art spaces (ten locations) in Taipei City, thereby extending the viewing experience to the places with different atmospheres, and inviting the viewers to space-hop in the southern part of Taipei Ci
Initiated in 2016, TheCube’s research residency program has annually supported artist(s) and curator(s) to Taiwan or foreign countries for their respective research projects. In 2021, TheCube invited Ting-Jung Chen, the winner of the Kunsthalle Wien Prize 2018, back to Taipei for the four-month research residency. Orientating her research toward the subject of “sound as a tool for identity and community construction,” the artist is going to stage her solo exhibition— Harmonielehre that treated surround sound, sculpture, and image as the media. Visitors were welcomed to this exhibition where they could immerse in the mesmerizing world of sound waves interlaced by the real and the virtual.
Following his four-channel video installation work The LED Future (2020), which investigated artificial light and the consciousness behind technology, artist Chi-Yu Wu presented his work Atlas of the Closed Worlds at TheCube Project Space. Through the approach of scenario planning, this work unfurled extensive research, stretching beyond historical facts along the long river of time, and including a cornucopia of changes in the surroundings and myriad imagined possibilities. Events from history and novels were amalgamated into a repository of information, generating different closed worlds through random numbers and evoking dystopian fantasies.

The Topography of a Decade: The Fund-raising Exhibition for the 10th Anniversary of TheCube Project Space
We celebrate the “ten-year” milestone in the development of TheCube Project Space. The visual imagery of the number of ten resembles not only an ouroboros but also a fractal world that continues unfolding in a cyclical and ever-changing fashion.
Artificial Unit, curated by Sun Yi-Cheng, seeks to reexamine how the existing units (incl. nation, family, race, and self) were formed through the “regulated co-production,” and on the other hand tries to construct an ideational model for the question as to “how people fabricate units” on the basis of exhibition and scenario-based performance.
Curated by Amy Cheng of TheCube Project Space in Taipei, The Ouroboros is an international joint exhibition that marks the second phase in the 2018-2019 Taiwan-Luxembourg Exchange Program. This exhibition will be synchronously on view at TheCube Project Space in Taipei and the Casino Luxembourg – Forum d’art Contemporain in Luxembourg.
Toward Mysterious Realities is a research plan devoted to rethinking the relation between Asia and the international world. Through a two-year plan, artists will display their views on specific historical moments and life experiences.
The international exchange exhibition dust to dust: of myths and men was presented by Casino Luxembourg – Forum d’art contemporain, TheCube Project Space, and VT Artsalon. The exhibition is curated by Kevin Muhlen, director of the Casino Luxembourg – Forum d’art contemporain, featuring the collaborative work by Karolina Markiewicz and Pascal Piron, and the work from Marco Godinho.
Seeing art as alternative activities to produce knowledge, this exhibition has grown out from the project, Selves-Educating, to focus on the collectives or communities formed for co-production of alternative knowledge, as well as the political subjects constructed during the process of co-production, in which common ideology and active/resistant agencies are established via negotiation. For this exhibition, these self-organizing political subjects, which co-produce alternative knowledge, are saw as the "unit of interdependency" for us to re-imagine an ideal society.
