In 2019, Kunsthaus Graz presented the exhibition Jun Yang. The Artist, the Work, the Exhibition. This show can now be seen in an expanded form under the title The Artist, his Collaborators, their Exhibition, and three Venues in Taipei.
This joint exhibition by the artist Jun Yang is held in three different spaces simultaneously. The theme of Jun Yang in each of the three spaces serves to expose the differences among the three “institutions”, and in so doing opens up a new dialogue. Jun Yang is exhibited respectively in a commercial gallery, a university gallery and a public art museum; thus is transformed into a symbol, encouraging the audience to question the nature of the art institution itself. Under this shift of concepts, the shape of the constructed social network of artists, artworks, and institutions becomes delineated, and what emerges is precisely the face of contemporary art.
The first part of the presentation opened at Tina Keng Gallery (TKG+ projects) on December 5th, followed by the Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts on December 11th. The third part will be presented at MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art) Taipei starting on February 5th.
