IEAS Exhibit Series — Arts of Asia

Taiwanese Poster Design: An Engagement with Indigenous Arts


June 15 – August 16, 2010
Monday through Friday, 9 am – 5 pm
IEAS Lobby, 2223 Fulton Street, 6th Floor

Taiwan's "Yuanzhumin," or aborigines, inspire a selection of award-winning posters by Taiwanese design students. Motifs, myths, and the dilemmas of modern life are among the themes of the exhibit, on loan from the Shung Ye Museum of Formosan Aborigines. The beauty and vigor of traditional arts are explored through the sensibility and creativity of Taiwan's young artists. An opening reception follows a talk on Taiwan's "Yuanzhumin" at 5 pm on Thursday, June 17. In conjunction with the North America Taiwan Studies Association Conference (NASTA), extended viewing hours in the IEAS lobby will be offered Thursday, June 17, 5 to 8 pm; Saturday, June 19, 9 am to 5 pm; and Sunday, June 20, 9 am to noon.
