Persistence / Resistance opens March 2, 2023 at the Shung Ye Museum of Formosan Aborigines in Taipei, Taiwan. The exhibition runs until May 31, 2023.
Two of Ace’s works, Sign of the Mijibijiw (From beneath the surface) (2020) and Beaded Abstraction (2014) from the art collection of Indigenous and Crown Relations and Northern Affairs Canada (Gatineau) are currently in Taiwan and included in two exhibitions.
The first exhibition Persistence/Resistance: Taiwan – Canada Indigenous Art Exhibition features artworks from both Canada and from Taiwan at the Tainan Art Museum (TAM) until January 29, 2023. The second iteration of the exhibition features Canadian Indigenous art only and opens at the Shung Ye Museum of Formosan Aborigines on March 2, 2023.
Both exhibitions are a collaboration between the Canadian Trade Office in Taipei (Global Affairs) and the Indigenous Art Centre (Crown and Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada) in Gatineau, Quebec.
Sign of the Mijibijiw (From beneath the surface) (2020) is one of Ace’s Automata paperworks, where he explores the conceptual interface between mythology and the concept of the automaton through a set of cultural specific iconography and abstracted animal forms that can be located in the schematics printed on vintage electronic circuit-boards.
