Elaine K. Ng: Fingerprints of Place – Taiwan

On view: September 24 2021 – January 23, 2022
Location: Spotlight Gallery (Floor 1M)

A fingerprint is a unique human identifier. When we touch something, we leave behind a trace of our presence – proof that we engaged with our surroundings.

In Fingerprints of Place – Taiwan, Elaine Ng explores the evidence of human engagement, considering how materials, patterns and landscapes reflect the identity of a place and its people. This exhibition evolved from research Ng did while in Taiwan as a Fulbright Grant recipient in 2017-2018. See a blend of works including photographs, construction remnants, found objects and new creations that function as three-dimensional “fingerprints” of Taiwan as seen from Ng’s perspective.

ArtRx: Creative Antidotes

Ongoing

ArtRx is a response to the state of being human in America in 2020. ArtRx started as a way to process the COVID-19 pandemic. We quickly realized that if we’re talking about the unprecedented magnitude of loss and change, the awakening of the country to systemic racism needed to be part of the conversation as well. Throughout your visit, find staff responses to collection artworks through the lens of ArtRx.
