Flawless (無缺) is a solo exhibition of wood sculptures by Miaoli County native Chiu Shih-fu (邱仕福). Chiu learned to chisel at age 13 as a child laborer and has worked in the industry for 47 years. He specializes in figures of humans and animals, styled in lyrical lines that echo western Romanticism. They typically appear in pairs so as to keep each other company, according to the gallery notes.

Sound State (聲態) collects new experiments by sound art pioneer Wang Fu-jui (王福瑞). Five pieces explore the possibilities of sound: One converts audio vibrations to visuals on a TV set, while another uses false computing protocols to generate true random noise that is emancipated from the machine. Wang is head of the Trans-Sonic Lab of the Taipei National University of the Arts and founder of Noise, the first noise/experimental music label in Taiwan.

The Sun Never Sets (日不落) is a career retrospective for acclaimed oil painter Wang Pan-youn (王攀元). Born in 1911 in Jiangsu (江蘇), the artist immigrated in 1949 to Yilan County, where he still lives today. Wang’s war-shaped life story has appeared in his work as an inflammatory color palette and the use of negative space to create an aura of isolation.

Coordinated with Switzerland’s Kindermuseum Creaviva at the Zentrum Paul Klee, Get Rhythm with Paul Klee is an interactive exhibit and workshop series for children aged 4 to 15.
