藝術家評選中…〉〉2018 Cheng Long Art Project Proposals Are Being Reviewed Now!


We have started to prepare the art festival in the village and school, the picture show you the worksheet we worked with school children these two days…..隨著徵件截止, 這兩天我們也開始帶著成龍國小各班的小朋友一起回顧曾經和藝術家工作的點點滴滴…..

Thank you to the 26 former Cheng Long Wetlands International Environmental Art Project artists who submitted a proposal to create a new work in Cheng Long for the 2018 art project, and our 9th anniversary. The 2018 art project will take place in Cheng Long, Yunlin County, Taiwan from April 11 to May 14, 2018, with the 6 selected artists staying in the village for those weeks to create site-specific environmental art installations using natural and recycled materials. This year the theme is “What a Difference 9 Years Makes”, and we will also have a reunion with former artists, volunteers and the school children and community people. We are also having a symposium on “Environmental Art and Communities” that will be held from May 11-14. We will Post more information on this Blog soon about the symposium in 2018.

「成龍溼地國際環境藝術節」將在2018年邁入第九屆,感謝26位曾經來過成龍溼地創作的藝術家們再次參與提案。2018年的藝術節同樣將在雲林縣口湖鄉成龍村舉辦,藝術家駐村是從4月11日至5月14日,我們將選出六位藝術家於成龍村現地,使用自然及回收的素材進行創作。今年的創作主題是《What a Difference 9 Years Makes》,除了將邀請獲選藝術家幫我們回顧九年來的改變外,也將辦理一場大團圓,讓過去的藝術家、志工《作伙倒轉來》,和村子裡的孩童、村民們再次團聚!並藉此於5月11-14日辦理一場《環境藝術與社區》論壇。更多的訊息,我們將會儘快公告在這個部落格。

unnamedJane Ingram Allen and Chao-mei Wang, who are the co-curators for the 2018 art project, are now reviewing all the proposals for 2018 and will be making the decision by Feb. 8 about the artists to invite to return to Cheng Long and create the new works they proposed. Jane is in the USA and Chao-mei in Taiwan, so they meet by the Internet using Skype and email. Here is a photo of Jane and her husband Tim in their Santa Rosa, CA home. Jane and Tim are very excited to be coming to Cheng Long village again for the residency period April 11 – May 14. They look forward to meeting everyone again and seeing all the changes in the village and having fun with the children and helping the artists. It will be a difficult job to select only 6 artists from all the good proposals and the great artists who applied. Keep checking this Blog to see the announcement about the 2018 selected artists on Feb, 8, 2018.
