Constellation Assembly

Curatography Issue 11 "Ethics of Flourishing Onto-Epistemologies” focuses on exploring the prospective intricacies of a pluriversal onto-epistemological ecosystem from a curatorial perspective. "Constellation Assembly" initiative endeavors to cultivate interconnections among curators, artists, and diverse participants through dialogues and negotiations. Analogous to the assembly of celestial bodies forming constellations, this conceptualization posits the establishment of gatherings to construct flourishing onto-epistemologies, which are necessarily reconfigured from friendships among people and the exchange of dialogues between diverse perspectives.

In the post-epidemic era, international exchange activities in the contemporary art field have gradually increased, and both Taiwan and foreign institutions are launching residency programs and holding international forums. Yu-Lun (Fiona) Hsu, a student of CCSCA, was selected to participate in the ‘Curatorial Intensive Indonesia 2024’ held by Independent Curators International (ICI) and took a 10-day intensive training in Yogyakarta and Bali. This year, the Asia Society Switzerland collaborated with TheCube Project Space to assist Giada Olivotto, an independent curator from Switzerland, who was selected for Curator Residency, to conduct a two-month in-depth research trip in Taipei.

The Praxis School is a thematic lecture/workshop series initiated by TheCube Project Space in 2016 and held on an annual basis thenceforth. “Tiangong Kaiwu: Modern Life and the History of Technology” was the theme that ran through the 2018 Praxis School, with special foci on modern life’s relations to the history of technology, the history of science, and contemporary art, as well as on their complex interplay.

TheCube Project Space is honored to present the symposium Reality in its Double Bind: Emotional Signifiers in the Undercurrents of History in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Curated by Hsu Fang-Tze, this three-day symposium marks the second phase of the curatorial project Towards Mysterious Realities, launched in Taipei, 2016.

The 2017 Praxis School invites four social practitioners/cultural researchers to serve as the lecturers in three thematic sessions. Po-Wei Chen, the founding leader of the former Black Hand Nakasi – Workers’ Band, leads the first session Body, Space and Memory (incl. three workshops), followed by The Historical Context in the Cold-War Structure (incl. three lectures) that small-theater director and cultural critic Mo-Lin Wang curated as the second. Organized by cultural researcher Sun-Quan Huang and Internet activist Shih-Chieh Ilya Li, the third session Network and Society (incl. six lectures/workshops) is scheduled for launch in the second half of 2017.
