On 2 March, M+ will present a special screening of six rarely seen moving image works from the 1960s and 1970s by renowned Taiwanese artists/filmmakers Chen Yao-chi (b. 1938) and Chang Chao-Tang (b. 1943). The making of these groundbreaking works informed and galvanised the practices of moving image, visual art, and experimental theatre in Taiwan, connecting strongly with the rising awareness of cultural identity within its social spheres. The screening will be followed by a discussion with Chang and Professor Ray Jiing, Dean of the Graduate Institute of Studies in Documentary and Film Archiving, Tainan National University of the Arts. Moderated by Lesley Ma, Curator, Ink Art and Yung Ma, Associate Curator, Moving Image.
