Back to Marginality is a report on Seoul Art Space Geumcheon's art ecosystem that crosses the boundaries, dissolves a center, and shows its capacity as marginal existence. Through the experiment on the boundaries and art practice by the artists, this exhibition will show the power and various values of ochlos. Ochlos is an alienated remnant that is not integrated with a social system and a huge latent that moves history at the same time. As the social anxieties in Korea are somewhat relieved, the marginal individuals that have become stronger in the process try to make them free from the community influenced too much by ideology and go back to practicing individuals, and recover the meaning and emotion of the marginalized life with various values. They work on the boundaries and surroundings, firmly confronting the otherization and alienation and caring the people that are affected by such phenomena. As a result, they can show their virtue and sublimity with diversity and flexibility.

Co-presented by Hong Kong Arts Centre and Videotage, “Aspirations of Flight” brings a night of short films that present a collection of experimental works to consider ‘flight’ in both the literal and symbolic sense. Addressing flight, the films employ formal approaches such as depictions of modes of transportation, aerial shots, and animations in the bird's eye view. In relationship to these elements, the subject matters in the works deal with tension, impermanence, or acts of transgression and defiance to flee elsewhere. With the permission of the filmmakers, the collection of shorts ranges from completed projects from recent years to current works in progress to display experimental films in various states as they find form, or are re-contextualized amongst the other works. Works included are from artists Chen Yu Chen, Milad Mozari, Samuel Swope, Amanda Vanvalkenberg and Calum Walter. The program will entail the screening of the works followed by a Q&A with the artists.
Free admission with online registration.

The New Normal will travel to Istanbul for its second iteration where it will be on show at Supa Salon and other venues from May 5-7, 2017. More information tba.
The New Normal is an exhibition organized by artists Murat Adash and Hiba Farhat. The inaugural exhibition will take place in Beirut from March 10-12, 2017, followed by a second iteration in Istanbul from May 5-7, 2017.
As seemingly distant and unlike things are remarkably linked into one another, the new rapidly evolves resembling the familiar as the familiar seems more and more ambiguous. What is most normal is also most strange and horrific. Although these propositions may appear mutually exclusive, in fact they might as well be mutually constitutive.
In response to the current social order that has implanted itself through recent global events into the new normal reality – the participants in the exhibition will critically investigate, document, identify, etc. what is the abnormal that has become commonplace. The New Normal invited contributions from around 200 international artists, composers, filmmakers, choreographers, writers, scholars, thinkers and individuals from a variety of other disciplines to each create a one-page paper document, which will be on view during the exhibitions.
Through drawings, sketches, notes, text, manifestos, scripts, recipes, maps, scores among other formats, this show proposes a revision and re-imagining of some of the narratives of the everyday, from an environmental, economic, social and creative perspective.
Having been successfully presented for many years by the museum, the annual art competition and exhibition the “Taipei Arts Awards” is a testament to the dynamism of Taiwan's contemporary art development and serves as a predictor of up and coming art trends. The award encourages outstanding artists and promotes artwork rich in content capturing the spirit of the times, thus stimulating creative energy and new ideas.
After two-stage selection, 12 participating artists of “2016 Taipei Arts Awards” include Chiao-Yen HSU, Hung-Lun CHEN, Chih-Hung LIU, Pei-Hsuan WANG, Jo-Hung TANG, Ding-Yeh WANG, Chih-Feng CHIEN, Chen-Yu CHEN, I-Chun CHEN, Pei-Xin CHUANG, Ze WEI, Pei-Shih TU. 12 pieces of works will be on exhibit in museum Galleries D, E, and F from December 20, 2016 to March 19, 2017.
