 About the Contemporary Art Salon Autumn 2019 at Auction Center Taipei


Today, when almost anything is called “art,” we don’t really know what art is anymore. It is like a book in which so many words have been underlined that we lose sight of the important points. It is even more difficult to define contemporary art. How should it be described? It has been more than 100 years since Marcel Duchamp shocked the world with his urinal sculpture “Fountain” (1917). Since then, terms such as experimental, innovative and trendy have become cliché. It seems as if the world is experiencing burnout. What else can shock us? Today, creators and viewers are brought together into, or are imprisoned in, a kaleidoscope or labyrinth in the name of art. We scratch our heads and rack our brains to understand message and meaning and linger in the gray area of values between commercial investment and pure art appreciation. How can we set our GPS to find our way out of this labyrinth?

Great artworks need great artistic techniques, but the unforgettable ones capture our attention or speak to us. The communication between artists and viewers through the expression of a creative process is a delight. 

However, we need to “look longer” at artworks, as David Hockney suggests. The longer we look the more we see. After all, we hope that the artworks we collect and live with every day are an escape from boredom. 

Contemporary Art Salons are held twice a year by the Auction Center Taipei to recall the fundamental joy of art value.
