Double Square Gallery is delighted to present the group exhibition, Lineage 2021, which opens on 1 May and run through 12 June. The exhibition follows the curatorial theme of the Lineage series and continues the gallery's long-time attention to abstract painting while extending the curatorial exploration to three-dimensional sculpture. Lineage 2021 features eight artists, including Jenny CHEN, LAI Chi-Man, Cynthia SAH, LI Jiin-Shiow, LIN Chun-Ju, SzuMin KUO, WANG Gon-Jer and CHIU Dou. With diverse media of their own choice to explore varying issues, these artists have used textural and formal variations to introduce boundless cosmoses through their respective work.
Upholding a passion for and interest in post-war art, Double Square Gallery curated Lineage – Taiwan Contemporary Abstract Art Exhibition in 2016. Three years later, the gallery continued the curatorial context and used LI Chun-Shan as a starting point to present Lineage II – Li Chun-Shan and Varied Voices. The two group exhibitions featured various abstract art pioneers together with respected modern and contemporary artists whose work has propelled the progress of post-war Taiwanese art. Through the exhibitions, the gallery re-examined the art trends of their time. The works of each featured artist not only embodied the development of his or her own creative journey but also interwove with other artists' works to produce trans-temporal, cross-media implications, substantiating the curatorial concept of the exhibition series. Carrying on with the research subject, the gallery launches Lineage 2021, a curatorial effort that not only continues in unearthing the interrelations between different generations of abstract painters and their works, but also widens the scope to include three-dimensional sculptures, enabling two-dimensional and three-dimensional works to engage, blend, convert, resonate and spark off new connections within the finite exhibition space.
