PVG ART · Taipei
Parkview Green Art Taipei was launched in the beginning of March, 2015, following the foundation of its sister galleries: Parkview Green Art in Beijing, Parkview Green Art 798, Parkview Green Art Shanghai, and Parkview Green Art Hong Kong, and is located in the down town area of Taipei Ren-Ai Road. From the outset we have insisted on the running principle of "Intensively cultivating local culture with an international viewpoint" by sharing every sister gallery's resources and developing a relationship with the local area. The purpose of Parkview Green Art Taipei is to promote Asian contemporary art in an earnest, professional and sharing way, and further create a prosperous future for cross-strait artists, buyers and art lovers.
Our gallery space not only uses traditional solid walls to separate each art work, but also combines compound elements and multiple hierarchical separations to create new space visualization and a home-like warmth to yield a friendly visiting space for guests.
We, Parkview Green Art Taipei, would like to be a bridge and a friend between artists and the numerous art lovers. Our mission is to offer the public an opportunity to discover talented artists in Chinese and Taiwanese society, and focus on supporting Asian and international contemporary fine arts, therefore gradually exposing outstanding artists and art works to the international community.

Wang Luyan’s Solo Exhibition “Diagramming Allegory”
Wang Luyan succeeded in expressing abstract concepts and law by presenting concrete images as unique “diagrams” and “allegories”. The two huge and cold dimensional designs are employed as art media to approach important global events, international relations, political theories and religious cults, leading to his visual demonstration in a paradoxical perspective which is then turned into a logical and speculative visual form for us to watch and reflect on in our visual thinking.
This exhibition will be a rich collection of important contemporary works with distinctive features that go beyond such dichotomy of “concrete” and “abstract”, “expressive art” and “conceptual art”. “Diagramming” and “allegory” combine to develop a unique visual medium for our review of important issues in the contemporary world.
Choi Jeong Hwa Solo Exhibition — ON
The exhibition "ON" will present 14 pieces representative works and latest works of Choi Jeong Hwa in Parkview Green Exhibition Hall and Parkview Green Shopping Center simultaneously. While his "Flower Flower Flower", "Fruit Fruit Fruit", "About being irritated" and "Cosmos" will be shown in Parkview Green Shopping Center, other works, including "Breathing Flower", "The Joker", "Relatum - World", "Chaosmos", "Anthurium", and a number of first-time shown works, including "ON - Aggregation of spiritual and matter" and "Cierta enciclopedia China" will be shown in Parkview Green Exhibition Hall.
In the art community, Choi Jeong Hwa is known as a "Plastics Alchemist". Obviously, "plastics" is the highlight of both Choi Jeong Hwa's art works and this exhibition. According to him, plastic, the most artificial material, is the most important element of today's landscape. The most artificial element turns out to be the most familiar, most natural object. From his art works, we can see his rejection of the dialectical thought. In fact, acceptance and harmony are what Choi Jeong Hwa tries to advocate in his art works.
CHALLENGING BEAUTY Insights of Italian Contemporary Art
Parkview Green Museum is pleased to announce the opening of the exhibition “CHALLENGING BEAUTY – Insights of Italian Contemporary Art”, featuring the most representative works of Mr. George Wong’s Italian Contemporary Art Collection. The Exhibition will be held from July 16th. Curated by the internationally acclaimed curator and art historian Lorand Hegyi, the exhibition “CHALLENGING BEAUTY – Insights of Italian Contemporary Art” has its roots in Parkview Green’s exhibition dedicated to Italian contemporary art. Realized in 2014, the first exhibition presented an important part of George Wong’s collection of contemporary Italian art, mainly focused on artistic tendencies and phenomena of the Transavantgarde and the New Roman School as well as on some positions of contemporary aesthetical perspectives presented by the young generation of artists.
This new exhibition, presenting a historically concentrated selection of art works by very important Italian artists of our time, manifests the diversity and poetic richness of artistic thinking and ethical responsibilities established in the 1980s and 90s, which continue to influence the creative activities of many younger contemporary artists today.
“CHALLENGING BEAUTY—Insights of Italian Contemporary Art” guides us through a rich, complex, exotic and picturesque garden where nostalgic narratives are mixed with seductive, ironical and critical approaches. George Wong has created a singular, specific collection of Italian art whose works are concerned with contemporary sensitivity as they continue the old narratives of quest for harmony, complexity and true engagement in human issues.
Zheng Lu Solo Exhibition: Transiton
“Men do not look into running water as a mirror, but into still water. It is only the still water that can arrest them all, and keep them.” (Zhuangzi - The seal of Virtue Complete) It is only in stillness that we can see ourselves clearly, and only with a still heart that we can penetrate the mind and effect a transition in which all can come to a stop and become a mirror for reflection. This exhibition will present eight works of sculpture, installation and new media along a central axis of “stillness.” Beginning with a deep analysis of the nature of water, the artist has set out on a quest to probe time, space, existence and change.
Zheng Lu’s creations have always followed a unique linguistic logic. His recent sculptures have focused on “water” as their focus and core imagery, a carrier for multiple interlocking layers of meaning. Still Water, Shiosai, Unknown Circle and Rain Drum are continuations of this theme. Whether they are clashes of stainless steel and text, visual narratives of the roiling tides, or examinations of motion and flow in water, these works approach the material properties and social significance of water, presenting the tangible and intangible meanings of water in the language of sculpture.
Wang Luyan’s linear, drawing-like, precisely executed, impersonal and mechanical paintings seem to avoid any emotional, lyrical, anecdotic subject matter as they unveil the irrational, pathologic, self-destructive tendencies behind the seemingly rational and controlled systems of power. Gianni Dessi’s paintings and sculptures reveal the thinker’s deep existential angst of losing himself in the obscurity and chaos of reality, of losing his voice and artistic capability to shape his images, of losing his ability to create suggestive metaphors of life.
Alois Mosbacher’s paintings embody mysterious, confused, labyrinth-like spaces, forests and fields with trees, flowers, and plants: a whole vegetative richness permanently transforming itself into a chaotic, irrational, irritating world of darkness where probabilities and improbabilities are mixing with each other and creating a playful uncertainty.
Bridging Asia-Europe offers a complex, rich, deep, suggestive and perhaps somewhat disturbing, moving vision about basic existential questions of human direction in contemporary reality, through the power of the singular, unique, imaginary worlds created by the artists of our time.
Bridging Asia-Europe II
Bridging Asia-Europe II is structured around a personal presentation of each artist’s oeuvre, with no preference for any medium, methodological direction, or artistic tendency.Each installmentof the exhibition showcases the different visual elements through which the artists address, rethink and reinvent specific contemporarynarratives disclosing the complexity and the multiplicity of readings and interpretations of contemporary reality.
The second edition of the Bridging Asia–Europe exhibition seriesoffers a deeply human, intimate, substantial, complex and poetic vision about the human condition without any pathos or romanticism, but rather with a questioning character, with engagement for revealing contradictions and discrepancies between different messages, communication systems, language systems, and visual and textual forms of information.
