27th September, 2pm-2.30pm

Museum of Science and Industry

Art critic Chen Zian, the Taiwan correspondant for Artforum China, we’ll give a guided tour introducing the Taiwanese and Hong Kong artists’ works at the Museum of Science and Industry.

Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) serves as the main exhibition venue for Taiwanese artists and presents the UK premiere of Chen Chieh-jen’s 4 screen video work Realm of Reverberations (2014). Chang Huei-ming’s temporal installation, The Last Rose (2010), and Luxury Logico’s Solar, Manchester (2014), a mesmerizing artificial sun made from recycling street lamps, are site-specific installations that echo Manchester’s industrial past. Kao Jun-honn’s Malan Girl (2014) takes inspiration from the historical site of MOSI – the world’s oldest surviving passenger railway, Yao Jui-Chung’s video piece Long Live, (2011-21) and Long, Long Live (2013) filmed in ruins that had a significant political past but were left forgotten in the present day.

Fionna Barber, Simon Faulkner and Dr Beccy Kennedy discuss creating contemporary art in boarder areas and zones of conflict, reflecting on the work of Liu Xiaodong.

In his most recent series of works, Liu Xiaodong explores the vastly juxtaposing environments of the two conflicting states, Israel and Palestine. Living in Tel Aviv for four weeks, Liu Xiaodong travelled throughout the Holy Land to witness and research the implications of religion, nationality, and cultural diversity.

Samson Young’s ‘Muted Situations’ performance


Samson Young, Muted Situation (performance)
27th September, 2.30pm – 3pm
John Rylands Library

Live Performance- Muted String quartet followed by Q&A with the artist Samson Young.

Samson Young directs and stages a muted music performance, requesting that performers play with no less energy or seriousness but try to suppress and silence the ‘sound-producing’ part of the act. By removing the sound, audience expectations are thwarted. Do we imagine harmonies or discordant sound?
