Being Here as ME presents six women artists striving towards constructions of female subjectivity. Pey-Chwen Lin, Tzu-Ning Wu, Yung-Chieh Wu, I-Chun Chen, Pei-Shih Tu, and Hui-Chan Kuo create new media artworks through diverse mediums and methods. Their work transcends gender discussions, and through social strategies, action, and engagement they express their concerns and create artworks revealing their anxiety and opinions about the ecology of society, science, technology and the environment. This exhibition is sponsored by the Ministry of Culture, Republic of China (Taiwan) and Taiwan Academy, Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in the US (TECRO).
