Eye Dream

Finally made it downtown to the Kaohsiung Fine Arts Museum to see Eye Dream: Multiple Realities in Taiwan Contemporary Photography and Painting, an exhibit that features artists such as Chin Cheng-Tsai (金成財) and Lin Pei-Hsun (林珮熏). Seeing the Six Continents of Quilts exhibit, comprised largely of works by American artists who have raised quilting to an art form, was a bonus. I was also fortunate to meet art archivist Chiang Te-Hua (江德華), who works for the Taichung Fine Arts Museum; he specializes in digitalizing art.

Since I was already downtown, I also visited an Eslite bookstore, where I made off with a good haul: a DVD copy of Hou Hsiao-hsien’s Cafe Lumiere (珈琲時光); a collection of poems called Dear Epoch edited by Lee Chin-wen (李進文), and bilingual copies of Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea and a collection of selected poems from Shelley, Keats, Wordsworth and Byron.
