We are very pleased to announce that Taiwanese artist Chen Liang-Hsuan (陳亮璇) will participate in this year's virtual DUMBO Open Studios
! Please join us on June 4th – 7th to check out work by her and others.
In April each year, DUMBO will open their doors to the public as a part of DUMBO Open Studios, giving visitors a look into studios and workspaces across the Brooklyn waterfront. It will not take place as originally scheduled due to COVID-19. Alternatively, the work of DUMBO artists and galleries will be shared online, and a virtual DUMBO Open Studios will be launched soon. For the first time, DUMBO Open Studios will showcase artwork available for sale, providing an opportunity to support artists in this precarious moment through direct purchase of their work.
Chen Liang-Hsuan (陳亮璇) was in a residency program hosted by Triangle Arts Association in Dumbo until COVID pandemic that causes cancellation of the program in March. However, the Association has been in touch with many of their alumni, who are sharing stories of their artwork and lives from around the world. Check out interviews with Chen Liang-Hsuan (陳亮璇) and other artists, and a short video essay by her.
Born in 1985, Taipei, Chen Liang-Hsuan obtained her MFA degree in 2016 from the Film, Video, New Media, and Animation Department of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Chen’s art predominately experiments space-time travel that seeks to connect together different time segments. From behind the video camera, she applies images on narratives and sounds, and creates spatial installations, and her approach of mixing experimental documentary and home video results in hyper-real states that blend together everyday life and personal memories that are uniquely Taiwanese.
