【哲學「」星期五@紐約】紐約台灣設計講座 2019/06/29 19:00-21:00


** This talk is part of The Wedding Banquet - A Celebration of Same-Sex Marriage in Taiwan and Beyond Exhibition**

More show detail:


全球化時代,#地域間文化 間的碰撞與 不同 #價值文化 之間激盪看似已經成為常態,但是文化與文化之間的「深談」卻非簡單的言語對話就好,而是需要去「體驗」與「轉譯」。語言文化的轉譯有翻譯員,而文化之間透過圖像來轉化則是藝術家與設計師最主要的任務。紐約華爾街的「無懼女孩」代表階級文化衝突的意象;布魯克林區的街頭藝術展現嬉皮文化的放蕩不羈。







Design transformation -

Visual Language from Taiwan to New York

In the globalization era, the conflictions and interactions within geographically cultures and ideologies are usual and reasonable. The communication within cultures is not only through language but also acting and feelings. Interestingly, language translators transfer meaning through words; art designers transfer the culture through imagines. For instance, the fearless girls showed the social class confliction at Wall Street in Manhattan, the street art and graffiti represented the hippie culture in Brooklyn.


We are glad to invite three famous Taiwanese art designers sharing their

creativity and how they have the “dialogue between Taiwan culture and American culture,” transferring the meaning of Taiwan, through their design.
