Looking Both Ways is a contemporary art exhibition to be held at the University Gallery of Eastern Michigan University from September 8 through October 21, 2011. The exhibition is organized to coincide with the centennial of the founding of the Republic of China (ROC). In the exhibition artists are asked to provide differing critical viewpoints on the history of the ROC and its political and social-economic relationships with the Peoples Republic of China (PRC) and the United States. Artworks in the exhibition will include both works selected from a national juried competition and invited works by several well-known artists based outside the United States in Taiwan and Mainland China. The exhibition will serve as a forum to enhance the public’s understanding of modern Chinese history and the complex interactions between Mainland China and Taiwan, as well as to raise awareness of how these and continual developments will affect US foreign relations.
Applicants must be 18 years or older. Any artist, regardless of ethnic decent or cultural heritage, is eligible to apply. Works in any medium are eligible. DEADLINE FOR ENTRIES: May 15, 2011.
