30 Years of CFCCA | Yu-Chen Wang

In 2011, Yu-Chen Wang was invited to complete a ‘Breathe’ residency at CFCCA in which she explored Manchester’s industrial history. She also published her first artist’s book, The Song of the Machines in collaboration with CFCCA in 2012. Having lived and worked in London for over fifteen years, Nostalgia for the Future at Taipei Fine Arts Museum (due to open in 2016) is Yu-Chen’s first solo exhibition in her native Taiwan. The retrospective exhibition takes Yu-Chen’s personal experience as a starting point to explore notions of memory and identity, past and future, fiction and reality. The collaborations, live events, drawings and other aspects of Yu-Chen’s journey to becoming an artist will be documented and developed into new work for the solo show at CFCCA. The exhibition will explore private and collective memory of exhibitions through presentation of text, images, documentation and re-enactment. Yu-Chen Wang has been supported by National Culture and Arts Foundation (Taiwan), Department of Cultural Affairs, Taipei City Government and Arts Council England.
