“Tracing the Roots through Sculpture—PU TIAN-SHENG 110th Birthday Memorial Exhibition” organized by National Dr. Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall, Ministry of Culture, is grandly held at Chungshan National Gallery from August 20 to October 19.
Pu Tian-sheng is a representative sculptor in Taiwan. He never stopped creation for his life. National Dr. Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall invited the family of the master to plan and hold the memorial exhibition together in the year of the artist’s 110th birthday to completely exhibit Pu’s representative works of sculpture in the different stages. “Ms. Lin Jin-Juan Memorial Statue” exhibited at the outdoor corridor of the hall is a large statue created by the master when he was sick, symbolizing his persistence in creation throughout his life. The exhibition also “traces the roots” of the history of fine arts. The planning and discourse of the exhibition retell the historical context the Taiwanese senior artists have left and show the expectation for the future development of fine arts. The exhibition also plans five speeches, one of which will be given by the sculptor, Pu Hao-ming, who inherits his father’s skills, and the exhibition curator, Pu Hao-zhi. They will have a conversation about “Deconstructing Pu Tian-sheng.” Welcome to register for the speeches.
