Innovative artist Yao Jui-Chung, also a curator, art critic and art historian, experiments with a broad variety of mediums, including installation, performance, photography, video and painting, creating works that are both aethetically beautiful and conceptually challenging.

Often appropriating imagery from the canon of Chinese art history, Yao's works question and contest Taiwan's complex politcal and historical past.

療癒之泉—格蘭菲迪台灣 藝術家駐村計畫 12 週年

December 23, 2016 - February 12, 2017

2005年,陳慧嶠是台灣第一位受邀格蘭菲迪藝術駐村計劃 (Glenfiddich Artists in Residence) 的藝術家,在蘇格蘭達芙鎮 (Dufftown) 生活與創作,開啟了台灣藝術家與當地深厚的文化交流。從此,台灣的駐村藝術家透過伊通公園的推薦,每年夏天在達芙鎮駐地創作三個月,了解威士忌的傳統製程、當地環境、品牌歷史與價值,並吸取與轉化為藝術作品,每個人都以獨特的方式與策展人安迪‧費爾葛瑞福 (Andy Fairgrieve) 建立起一段特殊的情誼。在格蘭家族第五代傳人彼得‧高登 (Peter Gordon) 的支持下,由蘇格蘭格蘭菲迪酒廠、伊通公園、格蘭父子台灣分公司三方合作,不斷轉型、累積與推展下,台灣成為格蘭菲迪各國AiR計畫中,最完整亦最具代表性的國家。

今年是台灣參與格蘭菲迪藝術駐村計畫的第12年,12不只是時間的概念,同時也是宇宙間木星運動的循環週期,象徵信念與智慧、幸運與成長,12也是威士忌熟成最具代表性的年限。在這個別具意義的階段,格蘭菲迪集結了歷年的駐村藝術家陳慧嶠、吳季璁、姚瑞中、袁廣鳴、王俊傑、陳曉朋、劉文瑄、吳東龍、陳怡潔、何采柔、張暉明,以及方才駐村回國的林昆穎,將於關渡美術館舉辦「療癒之泉—格蘭菲迪台灣藝術家駐村計畫12週年」展。

Eight Days a Week | Jui-Chung Yao Solo Exhibition

February 18, 2017 - March 26, 2017

Yao Jui-Chung turns daily experiences into the subject matter of his painting, where against the backdrop of idyllic landscape, the concurrence of his children's formative years and his andropause becomes an important chapter in their lives. Rather than a picture of family life, this body of work is more like the fantasia of a reclusive father, comprising one illusory image after another that may happen in the real world.

Eight Days a Week is inspired by the artist's life for the past eight years as a middle-aged man who`s been taking care of his daughters while making art at home, therefore losing touch with the friends.

Jui-Chung Yao undertook his ACC residency at the Headlands Center for the Arts in California in 1998.

December 23, 2016 - February 12, 2017

This year marks the twelfth year Taiwan has participated in the Glenfiddich Artists in Residence program. 12 is also the number of years it takes for Jupiter, an astrological symbol for faith and wisdom, good fortune and growth, to complete one orbital cycle. Over the past 12 years the Glenfiddich artist’s village has been home to many Taiwanese artists. These creative talents are now brought together for the first time in an exhibition at Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts, titled Springs Eternal: Glenfiddich Artists in Residence - 12 Years from Taiwan.

週休八日─姚瑞中個展

February 18, 2017 - March 26, 2017

耿畫廊將於2017年2月18日至3月26日舉辦開春第一檔展覽─「週休八日─姚瑞中個展」。此個展以姚瑞中從臨摹傳統古畫解放出的特有山水形式為基底,集合了帶有卡通元素與藝文界奇人異士的新作與舊作共同展出,呈現出創作在時間軸的變化。而每年時至新舊轉換之際,也許是回顧瀏覽與重新定義一些個人經驗的好時機,面對生命走到不惑之年且伴與一雙娃兒的姚瑞中,現實情境的改變開拓了新的觀察對象,及許多留待排遣的記憶碎片,讓一向風格敏銳激進的他,挖掘出更多日常經驗為材料投以其企圖顛覆正統的創作路線上。

The New Vision of Printmaking

July 21, 2017 - September 24, 2017

This exhibition explores some of the current practices by artists working with printmaking who are approaching the form not specifically as printmakers but are in many cases using print as one of a number of forms of expression or in combination with other media. They represent new forms of engagement that is informed by current art practices and the impact of digital media, the relation to drawing and photo based media, as well as in some cases, durational, installation and performative practices. This is represented in the different cultural traditions in Taiwan, London and Madrid where most of the artists gravitate to or are based. It is possible to recognise some of the specific cultural conditions that inform the work from each country and the extent to which traditional forms of printmaking have been embraced or even rejected. The exhibition therefore highlights how these artists apply the concepts of print to their artistic expression. By presenting the prints created from different aspects and in different forms, the viewers will get a grasp of the new vision of printmaking which comes along with the departure from old traditions.
