A gathering about a project facilitating exchanges between socially engaged artists in UK and Taiwan.
In the summer of 2017, artist Howl Yuan organised an art exchange project, Artist Home Swap, and brought four UK based performance artists, Sheaf+Barley, Ania Varez and Hannah Sullivan, to Hualien, Taiwan. They stayed around Taroko National Park and lived with indigenous peoples while developing their practice.
For this gathering the artists and Howl Yuan will gather again, share their experiences of that challenging, existing, inspiring and difficult summer, and open up discussions about exchanging cultural practices and issues of extraction, exploitation, and fetishism within the frameworks of international residency programmes.
The form of this gathering will recreate the daily scenes of the artists’ residency by gathering together to have a meal.
Food will be served.
