‘Future Island’ captures the forward-thinking and unique identity of the vibrant contemporary art scene in Taiwan. Mehta Bell Projects presents a diverse selection of engaging artworks produced by a young generation of emerging Taiwanese artists.
Each artist investigated notions of identity, environment, and the unique position of Taiwanese culture in a contemporary context. These artists seek to create independent and striking visual ways of communicating their sense of self, and engage with the social and political influences and traditions that have infiltrated their society.
There were elements of the surreal and playful references to pop and media culture, and explorations into the more ominous threat to the environment and the ever-changing landscape of this rapidly developing island.
Future Island captured the essence of an artistic generation that is outward looking, energetic and highlights the compelling art coming out of this region.
