Frieze New York Online Viewing Room is scheduled to launch amidst the global upheavals caused by COVID-19, while the art world weathers through the pandemic’s shock waves. For this occasion, Tina Keng Gallery, as the only gallery representing Taiwan, will showcase a stable of contemporary artists of Chinese descent. The five artists, including Zhang Hongtu, Su Xiaobai, Yao Jui-chung, Peng Wei, and Su Meng-Hung, will propose a moment of reflection inspired by classical Chinese philosophy to catalyse an intercultural dialogue distilled from the Asian aesthetics.
During the virtual showcase, we will echo our digital presentation with a collaborative group show, titled Frieze Viewing Room Online: Back-end, with TKG+ at our Taipei space to delve into our response to the challenges that face spectatorship at art fairs and cultural events due to the pandemic outbreak. (Viewing by appointment only)
Tina Keng Gallery will also take part in the Frieze Charity Viewing Room program with works by Taiwanese artists Yao Jui-chng and Su Meng-Hung to show our solidarity in this time of severe change. The proceeds of the sales will go to independent international humanitarian organization Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders (MSF).
