Founded in 2009, TKG+ privileges experimentation in art across different mediums, from video and photography to installation and new media. With a special focus on video art in the new media age, TKG+ delves into aesthetics of the moving image and its place in contemporary art. This exploration not only blurs the boundary between mediums, but chronicles contemporary art’s engagement with history, society, and culture. The trajectory of the gallery delineates its endeavor to promote and support the most significant contemporary art from the region, through collaboration with artists and curators, exhibition research, as well as the nurturing of the art collecting scene.
With its support of Taiwan’s video art scene, TKG+ deepens its roots by encompassing intriguing artists not only from Taiwan, but from Southeast Asia, interlinking the global community with contemporary art that transcends geographical barriers. This endeavor resonates with Director Shelly Wu’s philosophy: Running a gallery focused on contemporary art is a journey through art history and contemporary life, where art and economy are not mutually exclusive, where art is a portraiture of life and a way of reflection; dynamic adaptability, a prerequisite for the fulfillment of artistic ideals. As its name suggests, TKG+ believes in the exponential growth and possibility of art in the 21st century.
