Art exhibition listings

By Enru Lin  /  Staff reporter

Kuandu, a nine-gallery museum, is also showing works by contemporary artist Hsieh Li-fa (謝里法). Hsieh is a main driver of Taiwan’s postwar art scene, and has worked primarily in art criticism and oil painting. In his early years, he was also a prolific printmaker. Old Plates New Prints — A Solo Exhibition by Hsieh Lifa (舊版新印-謝里法版畫作品展) presents a decade of his early printing work, dating from school days in Paris to his New York City apprenticeship in 1974. The prints are linocuts and zincographs that remark on and sometimes deconstruct local art trends, as well as document Hsieh’s own evolution as an artist.
