CTBC Foundation for Arts and Culture 中國信託文教基金會


CTBC Foundation for Arts and Culture is committed to promoting art and culture, showcasing a collection of paintings that represent the modern and contemporary art history of Taiwan. The exhibition featured the paintings by Wang Pan-Youn and Chang Kuang-Bin from the collection of CTBC Bank, and Su Huang-Sheng’s work from the foundation’s collection. Wang Pan-Youn’s To Wish combines the texture of oil painting with the airy and fluid qualities of watercolor also incorporates imagery reminiscent of traditional ink painting. Chang Kuang-Bin employs techniques such as “scattered-dot cùn” and “ordered-dot cùn” to depict landscapes in his ink-on-paper works An Ancient Road in-between Two Creeks, The Echo in the Mountain Valley, and A Landscape of Deep Gullies and High Cliffs. In the last, the recipient of Merit Award of the inaugural CTBC Painting Prize, Su Huang-Sheng, presents his ink and mineral pigment on silk work Cherish Every Moment Before Tonight. This piece reflects the innovative interpretation of traditional media by young artists, distilling it into his distinctive artistic vocabulary.

Hong Foundation 洪建全基金會


As the Key Culture Partner for the 2024 Taipei Dangdai Art Fair. The Hong Foundation commissions artist Cheng Hsien-Yu (recipient of its 2019 Tung Ching Prize,) to transform a booth into a bait with an ulterior motive: as potential collectors step into the space, the artwork is triggered, initiating the choice to trade. Within this global art market mechanism involving artists, galleries and collectors, Cheng Hsien-Yu assigns the power of “pricing” to all, this act of pricing participation thus becomes an art work where everyone can play a part in determining its final asking price which will be the artist’s commission fees, compelling us to reconsider the exchange values we arbitrarily set on human attributes such as pranks, inspiration, creativity, or art.
