How on Earth can we live together?
"Often what makes news headlines is so distressing that it is natural to feel uncertain, even fightened, about the state of the world today. Massive climatic changes are sweeping Mother Earth: undeniably the causes are our own doing, yet the effects are out of our control. Despite all the knowledge there is, terrorist attacks take place in the peaceful parts of the world and the struggle for equality continue. All of this is true. Even so, I believe that this is also the most exciting time in human history. We are now citizens of the largest country on the planet, Facebook: 2 billion of us live there! This has given us unprecidented social powers to positively impact a community, a place, a city, a world. The artists curated for GLOBAL POLITICS Art Taipei Public Art Project demonstrate how such expansive ways and thiking can be applied to art practice."

From Sea, to Summit, to Space (Performance art in extreme environments)
Art Salon is, where speakers and visitors can get closer to each other at ART TAIPEI. Experts such as curators, art critics and artists can exchange their views on art and share their stories and experience with the audience. Trained as a simulation astronaut and diver, Dr. Sarah Jane Pell redefines art practice by performing in extreme environments, such as the deep sea and Mt. Everest. She is the first female artist in the world to train for a space mission, and is contributing to the current dialogues between science and culture about the future of humanity. Her Art Salon talk was the best attended session at Art Taipei 2017. May expansive conversations continue.
