亞洲藝術中心 Asia Art Center

「亞洲藝術中心」1982年由李敦朗先生創立於台北,2007年亦在北京798藝術區成立畫廊空間。

亞洲藝術中心開展了「海外華人」軸線,挖掘因二戰離開中國的藝術家,以1950年代末在台灣崛起的五月畫會、東方畫會為主軸,並將此一現代藝術的經營版圖擴及東南亞的南洋畫派。我們亦曾於2014年舉辦「釋放未來──中國當代水墨邀請展」,探究藝術家如何由重構水墨去開展水墨藝術的未來。此外,經營逾三十年,亞洲藝術中心致力於推動「研究出版」與「展覽」雙軌並進;我們回顧藝術家漫長的創作歷程,檢視他們所發展出的多元面貌,蒐集與分析文獻並提出觀點,指出在同時代的創作光譜中創作者佔據什麼樣的位置,進一步提問:不同的時代賦予藝術家何種創造力、以及藝術家如何再現時代精神。

社會趨於同質的過程中,藝術家各自東西與古今融合的策略以及地域特色,更顯關鍵,更多關於當代所謂獨具亞洲特色之創作,在Discovery頻道所拍攝的「華人藝術紀」2013年於全球30個國家播出,紀實呈現李真、楊識宏、徐冰、張洹等四位藝術家的概念思維。回顧過去的經營與未來的走向,我們自我期許著要扮演一個真正立足在「亞洲」的「藝術中心」,繼續我們獨具亞洲特色的交流與推廣。

In 1982, Asia Art Center was founded by Thomas, Duen Lang LEE in Taipei, Taiwan. In addition to its two gallery spaces in Taipei, another space in 798 Art District in Beijing, China was founded in 2007.

Asia Art Center has broadened the field of “overseas Chinese” by digging out artists who left China during World War II; centered on the Fifth Moon Group and the Eastern Art Association that surged in Taiwan in the late 1950s, our managing realm of modern art has furthered to include Nanyang Style of Southeast Asia. Moreover, we investigate the ways in which contemporary spirits evoke a shift in ink creation, allowing it to march into the chaos that is our current world while still rooted within traditions – “Rendering the Future – Chinese Contemporary Ink Painting Exhibition” of 2014 was thus held to delve into how these artists reconstruct ink to further the future of ink art.

With over thirty years in business, Asia Art Center is now engaging in a bilateral pursuit of “research and publication” and “exhibition”. As we reflect upon the lengthy creative paths of our artists, we examine the diverse expressions that they have refined, collect and analyze documents to propose new viewpoints, and identify where these creatives are positioned in the artistic spectrums of their time before raising the questions of what form of creative potential can different eras provide these artists, and how can artists echo the spirit of their time.

As our societies are becoming assimilated, it proves pivotal for artists from both the East and the West to strategically integrate elements of the present and the past on top of their regional characteristics as more contemporary works emerge, boasting their distinctly Asian qualities. Discovery Channel’s Chineseness program, broadcasted in 30 countries internationally in 2013, presented the world with the creative concepts of Li Chen, Yang Chihung, Xu Bing and Zhang Huan. Reflecting back on our past endeavors and future direction, we aim to be an “art center” that truly and firmly stands in “Asia”, continuing our exchange with our distinctly Asian twist.
