Asian Arts Going Green

Posted by Erica Minutella

In the 1980s, while Americans were experimenting with colorful wardrobes and experiencing John Hughes movies for the first time, Taiwan was undergoing an environmental awakening.

As a part of this movement, Taiwanese artists have sought inspiration from the natural materials used in traditional Chinese culture. To celebrate this recent re-exploration of the natural world in art, the Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education and the Asian Arts Initiative have partnered with the Taipei Cultural Center in New York City for the exhibition Going Green: New Environmental Art from Taiwan.

The opening reception for Going Green will be held at the Asian Arts Initiative, 1219 Vine Street, on Friday, August 6 from 5:30 – 7:30 pm. A panel discussion will feature visiting Taiwanese artists Chao-chang Lee and Ping-yu Pan, among others.

Guided tours of outdoor installations at the Schuylkill Center, 8480 Hagy’s Mill Road, will take place on Saturday, August 7, 3 – 5 pm. Further works will be on view at Asian Arts. The exhibition will remain on display through August 20. More information can be found by clicking here
