Tishan Hsu was recently interviewed by Dean Kissick for Highsnobiety magazine. See more of the interview at the link below.
“Tishan Hsu’s compositions are disorientating. They are screens you could lose yourself in. Everything is warped, or melting into something else. Bodies are disassembled. Eyes, noses, and ears are scattered Picasso-like about the place. They might seem cold and impersonal, dehumanizing even, but they come from his very personal experience of living through momentous and ongoing changes we have yet to understand. They seem to embody some of the keenest questions of the 21st century: like how has digital technology transformed our experience of reality? How has it affected our sense of selfhood? What level of agency are we able to retain as the tools we create spiral out of control, and where is art in all of this?”
“Artists in the World uplifts artistic voices and explores multiple histories, geographies, and current events while creating space for new ideas and possibilities.
Hosted by Carnegie Museum of Art’s director of education and public programs, Dana Bishop-Root, and WQED-FM’s artistic director, Jim Cunningham, the new podcast series features cross-disciplinary conversations, artist talks, readings, and performances that position artists in conversation with individuals across disciplines, practice, and place.”
Listen to episode 2, with Tishan Hsu and Ryan Inouye, here. “Episode two explores the cognitive and physical effects of technology. Tishan Hsu, an artist whose work examines the implications of the accelerated use of technology and artificial intelligence, and Ryan Inouye, associate curator for the 58th Carnegie International, discuss transformative technological advances on our lives.”
Exhibition dates: Thursday, November 10 — Sunday, January 29, 2023
“The MAK Center for Art and Architecture is pleased to present the twentieth iteration of Vienna — Los Angeles Garage Exchange: Maruša Sagadin & Jacqueline Kiyomi Gork. Vienna-based artist Maruša Sagadin collaborates with Los Angeles artist Jacqueline Kiyomi Gork. The artists respond to each other’s work to develop an exhibition for the Mackey Apartments’ Garage Top gallery.
Sagadin and Kiyomi Gork both present sculptural works— Kiyomi Gork continues their attenuator series of soft sculptures, designed to absorb unwanted sound in a space, but with an architectural focus that interacts with a newly produced series of architectural paper works by Sagadin. A sound element by Kiyomi Gork will also be created in response to the shared environment with Sagadin— fabricated on site and further testing the spatial and symbolic relationship between two- and three-dimensional urbanism.
Sagadin and Kiyomi Gork will engage in a collaborative-method of work-creation and installation. Their shared Garage Exchange project intends to evolve over-time in response to each other’s work and the Mackey Apartments Garage Top space.”

Opening November 5, 2022 through April 10, 2023: “The American writer Ray Bradbury said: “Science fiction is the art of the possible.” Under the guise of anticipating the future, it speaks to us of the present. It is a laboratory of hypotheses that manipulate and extrapolate the repressive norms and dogmas of today’s world, its ambitions, social afflictions, opportunities and perils. A Gateway To Possible Worlds exhibition brings together over 200 works from the late 1960s to the present day. Art & science fiction whisks visitors away to a 2300m² sci-fi world. It puts the spotlight on the bonds between imaginary worlds and our reality with the help of artists, authors, architects and film directors. It builds on current demands for 21st century utopias to spark debate, inspiration and a form of hope.”
Tishan Hsu’s Breath 4, 2021 will be on view.
A conversation between Tishan Hsu and Ryan Inouye, associate curator for the 58th Carnegie International. Free to attend, on November 3rd at 6:30pm at the Carnegie Museum of Art Theater.
Henry Shum’s debut in the United States, Hex, opens November 4 at Andrew Kreps Gallery’s 55 Walker space. He was also featured in the latest issue (#131) of ArtAsiaPacific in a Where I Work profile by H.G. Masters, with photographs by Peter Chung.
Curated by Cédric Fauq, Barbe à Papa (Cotton Candy) opens on 3 November (7PM) at the CAPC Bordeaux Museum of Contemporary Art. The exhibition is on view through 14 May 2023.
“Every year in March and October, you can hear from the windows of the Capc Museum of Contemporary Art in Bordeaux the echoes of the funfair that has been taking place on Place des Quinconces since 1854. This echo, amplified, gives rise to the exhibition Barbe à Papa. It takes up residence in the central spaces of the Capc – nave and mezzanines – in the form of a funfair in slow motion and deconstruction, thanks to the help of artists whose works maintain material, formal or cultural connivance with elements of the funfair.”

Empty Gallery has donated an edition of Taro Masushio’s Asagao 7 to Asia Art Archive’s Annual Fundraiser. View the work at their online auction until November 3rd, 2022.
“Asagao 7 captures a morning glory flower at night, when it discreetly seals its petals. The work derives from a larger project by Taro Masushio that explores the personal archive of Jun’ichi En’ya, one of the earliest homoerotic photographers in Japan. Reflecting on the hidden parts of En’ya’s life, Masushio uses this flower as a metaphor to consider the broader experience of concealing parts of oneself to comply with social norms.”
“Ari Larissa Heinrich’s “Ejecta” takes as its subject Jes Fan’s melanin sculptures and the geology of metaphoric language.”
“Ejecta” is one of five pamphlets forthcoming from The Andy Warhol Foundation Writers Grant’s new pamphlet series, titled Cookie Jar. Volume 1, Home is a Foreign Place, which includes “Ejecta”, will be published on November 15, 2022.
