SCORE: Moving from “Art as Method” toward “ALIA as Method”
Date
2020-07-17 ~ 2020-08-23
SCORE: Moving from “Art as Method” toward “ALIA as Method” project (hereinafter called the ‘SCORE’) takes Asian League of Institutes of the Arts (hereinafter called the ‘ALIA’) network as a score. With Box as Score2 as modules, it creates an artistic transmission process between schools. 
 
Founded in 2012, ALIA is an international art school organization with Taipei National University of the Arts (hereinafter called the ‘TNUA’) as the current chair. In the planetary context, ALIA as a network contains a spatial and temporal significance.
 
At the 2018 member meeting of ALIA in Istanbul, TNUA initiated the “ALIA as Method” project. In the ALIA board meeting in Seoul next year, TNUA announced the SCORE project. After receiving a box from TNUA, member schools can put in materials or non-materials in various arbitrary ways, and send the Box as Score2 back to TNUA in early 2020. Without sacrificing individuality and difference, these boxes and the coupled with scores perform multiple characters, including region, art, connection, dialogue, difference, temporality, continuum, and common.
 
In May 2020, TNUA chose to enact the Box as Score2 from Zurich University of the Arts. It was a lesson plan named Paxis 1: Score/scenario, a reflective project to the pandemic situation . It reflected timely on global contingency, and facilitated a Pandemic, Score, Assembly, Instruction, Performance, Infinite Workshop in TNUA with local context and awareness. It contains three parts: Preparatory Workshop (instructors: Shang-Jen Li, Chieh-Ting Hsieh, Te-Yu Wang, Jau-Lan Guo), Interdisciplinary Co-creation Workshop - What People with Face Masks Are Humming? (instructor: Cheng-Ta Yu), and Bioart Performance Exploration (instructors: Pei-Ying Lin, Paul Gong, Kuang-Yi Ku, Theresa Tsun-Hui Tsao).
 
When responding or “enacting” scores, interpreters are also co-creators behind the scores. Rather than simply expressing, they complete these scores. Therefore, enacting is not auxiliary to scores. Scores enable and drive live performance and other objects. In this sense, Pandemic, Score, Assembly, Instruction, Performance, Infinite Workshop in TNUA creates interpretation and impromptu moment for Paxis 1: Score/scenario from Zurich University of the Arts.
 
SCORE exhibition uses the globe space on the fourth and fifth floor in Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts, TNUA, to perform “ALIA as Method”. Gallery 401 presents the project from the beginning, production and transportation of Box as Score2 to how TNUA performing the lesson plan from Zurich University of the Arts. Gallery 501 includes results from Interdisciplinary Co-creation Workshop - What People with Face Masks Are Humming?. Bioart Performance Exploration and “Music Underwater” by I-Shuo Lin (the Box as Score2 by TNUA), are performed and presented at the exhibition opening.
 
As Hendrik Folkerts said in Sound Matters talk by Spring Foundation, Scores always wait for future performance. Performance always connected to the scores, and breaking time order at the same time. Based on this flexibility on time order, SCORE project sees all engagements among ALIA members as the relationship between scores and enactment. Since any enactment of a score irrevocably invokes the status of the score as origin, that becomes and remains in time, ALIA members stay open and inclusive to the network, and the real effects of the Score will extend endlessly. 
 
SCORE will develop its notational language through Artists Publication, where we notate materials, non-materials, and the beauty that moves in this project, even though it is yet never fully captured in the notational language.
