In recent years, artists and non-profit organizations in Taiwan and Hong Kong re-focused on the functions of art as a form of education and a way to enable viewers’ re-examination of their outlooks on life. These communities also actively engage in the discussion of issues such as civil awareness, community life, and cultural capital by launching various creative projects, coalitions, and calls to action. The role and function of art in our modern day society have become increasingly valued, seen as the symbol of democracy.

Art as Social Interaction: Hong Kong / Taiwan Exchange reexamines the relationships between art and society. The artist in this case is both a creator of cultural products and practitioner of social activism, affecting the production, development and distribution of art in new and different ways. The contributing artists/organizations include: Baunay Watan, Black Hand Nakasi Worker’s Band, Chang Yao Hsien, CoLAB, Colonized Warring Taiwan Society, Community Museum Project, Evelyna Liang, HOOTIKOR, Huang Po-Chih, Jam Wu, Julie Chou, Kuan-Shu Educational Foundation, Liu Kuo-Chang, Lulu Shur-tzy Hou, Mali Wu + Bamboo Curtain Studio, MaD, Nguyen Kim Hong, Phoebe Man, Scattered Camouflage, Soundpocket, Su Yu-Hsien, Taiwan International Workers Association + Susan Chen, v-artivist, Vangi Fong, Wallace Chang, Woofertening Group & Kaifong, Yannick Dauby + Wanshuen Tsai, Yao Jui-Chung + Lost Society Document (LSD), Yi-Mei Liao +Cultural Diversity Studio, and Yeung Sau Churk.
