Introduction to The Contemporary Lecture Room The Contemporary Lecture Room is one of the academic activities of Open-Contemporary Art Center that focuses on essential lessons concerning the visual arts.

In these lectures, the members share the results of their academic research, such as paintings, sculptures, performance art, multi-media arts, ink and wash paintings, architecture, and images that are implementations of creativity. In addition, we invite professionals and scholars to lecture on topics such as art critique and curating. Following the historical perspectives addressed in the lectures, listeners are guided into an investigation of/ the work of contemporary artists.

    Kaohsiung International Container Arts Festival

    In this project, we represent a stimulated container on the surface of a real one. By taking the pictures of a model container from each side, and then applying the prints on the surface of the original one, we attempt to create a virtual situation and present our anticipation of a re-constructed container.

    One Work Exhibition Project

    Our One Work Exhibition Project perpetuates the objective (spirit/aim) with which Open-Contemporary Art Center was founded. We introduce contemporary artists who possess a creative vocabulary by having them participate in year-round alternative exhibitions, in which a single piece is exhibited at a time. We invite curators to select the works of five or six artists for every exhibition — each lasting from Tuesday to Thursday. During the exhibition,  artists conduct dialogues with the audience by inviting them to speak. Through conversing with other artists, the creators may re-examine their works. Also, following the conclusion of all exhibitions, we will invite professional art critics along will all participating artists to hold a large seminar concerning the project series.
