In face of the current cultural values ​​and the freedom of consciousness constructed by humans, how should we deconstruct and restructure contemporary art, and how should artists play their roles? The 2014 Kuandu Biennale will be grandly on view at the Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts on 26 September. The Biennale invites 10 pairs of artist and curator from different countries in the regions of Asia, presenting a distinctive world woven by their respective cultural backgrounds and aesthetic horizons.

10+10: The Joint Interpretation by 10 Artists and 10 Curators

The Kuandu Biennale this year treats “Recognition System” as the curatorial theme. Specifically speaking, we intervene in the “systems” of artistic production by treating “recognition” as a “verb,” and then re-build and re-interpret the generative context of knowledge system and the gestalts of art with the assistance of methodological approaches, a process in which we grope for the shared properties and values between the knowledge system and art. From the deduction about civilizations to the landscapes along the skyline, and from the civilian economics to the micro-perceptions in the organic world, the 2014 Kuandu Biennale consists of 10 thematic “solo exhibitions” staged by 10 pairs of curator and artist who present a wide diversity of artistic claims, dialogues, analogies, aggregations, and discrepancies. Their competition, cooperation, and exchange embody a brand new Asian contemporary "recognition system."

The Kuandu Biennale centers on curating and features the curatorial mechanism of “asking the participating artists to recommend their own curators.” The mechanism was employed in the first Kuandu Biennale—“I Have a Dream” (2008), the second one—“Memories and Beyond” (2010), and the third one—“Artist in Wonderland” (2012). For the fourth Kuandu Biennale—“Recognition System,” we additionally cooperate with sister universities and other institutions to nominate eligible artists. This approach successfully assigns a distinctive subjectivity and the power of artistic discourse to the KdMoFA. In addition to the Kuandu Biennale, the KdMoFA also organizes the “Asian Contemporary Art Forum” that adequately connects Asian artists, curators, art critics, and local art communities. Through the Biennale and the Forum, we expect to pool the energy and creativity of Asian contemporary art and demonstrate the capacities and academic representativeness of a university museum.
