STUPIN.ORG: Kuo I-Chen Solo Exhibition

February 18, 2017 - April 16, 2017

STUPIN is a platform for artist residencies where individual artists network in the form of studio swaps. STUPIN.ORG, Kuo’s solo exhibition at TKG+ Projects, is the first embodiment of the studio-swap residency. Kuo investigates the relationship between the artist, the work, and the space it occupies. For this exhibition, Kuo swaps studios with Portuguese artist Filipe Cortez, who works across such mediums as performance, oil painting, sculpture, and installation in surveying the ephemeral landscape of memory, time, and the city through his site-specific work. Cortez and Kuo will continue their respective practices in each other’s hometown — Cortez in Taipei, Taiwan and Kuo in Porto, Portugal — and connect the two cities through their experiences of cultural exchange and networking.

Kuo I-Chen undertook his ACC residency in 2012 in New York.
