Neptune Gallery is honored to announce its collaboration with the Shihodo Gallery from Japan at the end of 2023. Together, they will present the “Migration” joint exhibition featuring Taiwanese and Japanese artists on the 1st and 2nd floors of the Neptune Gallery. Shihodo Gallery has carefully selected six represented artists, spanning various mediums such as Japanese painting, oil painting, ceramics, mixed media, and contemporary imagery, each with distinct attributes and diverse concepts, collectively forming a unique style.
In response to the distinctive features of Shihodo Gallery’s artists, Neptune has chosen seven artists working with oil painting, mixed media, Japanese painting, and wood carving. The goal is to stimulate and collide with different perspectives and inspirations between the two sides. Serving as the starting point for visual dialogue, the exhibition evolves into a three-dimensional creation, providing an in-depth exploration of perspectives and viewpoints. Independent curator Fang Yanxiang will handle academic research and discourse. The opening and discussion session is scheduled for January 6, 2024, at 3:00 PM. Shihodo Gallery President Suzuki Yohei and Neptune Gallery Founder Hu Minyao will both attend to discuss the envisioned blueprint for contemporary Taiwanese and Japanese artists in this collaboration. The exhibition will run from December 30, 2023, to February 18, 2024, and we sincerely invite you to attend.
The theme of this joint exhibition is inspired by the intertwined and inseparable fate of Taiwanese and Japanese art. Looking back at the historical context, Taiwan’s profound cultural foundation during the Japanese colonial period, from the cultivation of artistic education to contemporary cultural influences in architecture, literature, painting, music, dance, design, and pop culture, has surpassed the boundaries between nations. Therefore, the theme “Migration” aligns with the collaboration with Shihodo Gallery, symbolizing the construction of stable channels in the survival path, much like the migration of species. It not only builds on Shihodo’s rich gallery culture and collection but also serves as a learning model for Nepton Gallery to establish a long-term corporate culture. Moreover, through the exchange process of the exhibition, the young creators at Neptune, full of energy, and Shihodo’s exhibiting artists will sharpen their skills together, ensuring a sustainable and enduring cycle of exchange.
The migration of biological instincts involves not only ecological trajectories but also the transfer and fusion of history and culture. The exhibition, titled “Migration,” reveals the intricate relationship between Taiwan and Japan, where the two regions have stacked profound connections in culture, history, politics, economics, and art. Among the artists exhibited by Neptune Gallery and Shihodo Gallery, each not only showcases their cultural essence but also represents the evolution of contemporary art. Through this joint exhibition, the goal is to trace the artistic context and explore future possibilities.
