The Changing World (世界在變) is a solo show about Fifth Moon Group (五月畫會) cofounder Kuo Tong-jong (郭東榮). Born in 1927, Kuo studied art at the National Taiwan Normal University and went on to found Taiwan’s main modern art society of the 1960s. On canvas, he has treated current events like the Hiroshima bombing, the US Space Shuttle Challenger disaster and domestic affairs including urban renewal. The exhibition assembles Kuo’s representative paintings, as well as private manuscripts that document his creative process.

Contemporary artist Noritoshi Hirakawa thinks of man as two beings, one private and one public, with the former constantly censoring the expression of the latter. At the solo exhibition Infinite Dance, he is showing Lei Lenka — Yuriko, a video work that directs attention to the meaningless gestures and unspoken desires that inhabit that all private selves have in common. He also brings his S series: photos of beautiful landscapes in Switzerland that are also the sites of grotesque news-making suicide.
