Taipei Indigenous Contemporary Art Gallery (TICA Art Gallery)
To Bear Indigenous Culture with ART
To Sustain Heritage within Entrepreneurship
"Taipei Indigenous Contemporary Art”, sponsored by “CHEN-MEI Art & Culture Inc.” with endeavour to promote Taiwanese Indigenous contemporary art, culture and charity. Aiming to single out the Indigenous dynamic within the artistic market bringing it to mainstream society and the global audience.
II. Core Business
By the collaboration with Indigenous artists in a professional standard, we coordinate and support the artists with related information. Through valuable theoretical and curatorial approach we escort the artists to major markets and help to sustain their visibility containing both the artists’ personal experiences and cultural values. Making way to extend Indigenous contemporary art for recognition, collection and support.
To pave the way for Indigenous artists into the art market, we constantly participated in international art expos and fairs since 2015. In hoping to create visibility that the dominant art world will get to see the charm and potential of the Indigenous art reaching wider range of collectors where artists’ work can be recognised. In addition, to attract more related peers attention to Indigenous art sustainability and future aspirations.
In order to bring the Indigenous issues to dominant society, we have launched the “Inner Revolution” art project in 2015. We invited the Paiwanese artist, Pahawlan Cilan to sculpture 101 unique wild boars as the prism of precarious Indigenous life style and the recognition of identity. In an attempt to widen the vision of Indigenous circumstances calling for mainstream societies attention and discussion to mobilise societal function through art exertion.
(3)ART & CHARITY
To practice Corporate Social Responsibility, we inject charity into art projects. Since 2015, we have collaborated with “The Association of South-link Health Care Promotion for Taitung County”, with Indigenous artist involvement, we promoted the fundraising project for the South-link Hospital revealing the scarcity of medical resources. Believing that the public who take part in art will also enable practical support giving a promising future for the construction of the South-link Hospital.
(4)Call For Action - CSR IN ART
By collecting Indigenous artists work from us, the Indigenous artist will not only be motivated with actual benefit, it also creates impetus for the market of Indigenous art and boosts energy and continuity.
