Duration: 2 hours

Drawing upon the associations between people, culture and place, and relating it to the concept of a hot pot cuisine, “Down the Melting Pot” will bring audiences into an intercultural journey through the perspectives of young contemporary artists, whom in particular, often welcome the possibilities of forging memories, empathy and meaning with the cultural constructs of a place as they spark the inspirations and impulses to create. With a varied selection of moving images from around the world, including experimental shorts, video art, animation and performance art, the exhibition will highlight the myriad of sensibilities, cogitation and imagination made possible with intercultural exchange between people and people, and between people and place. The diverse works will each express a unique commentary about an individual or a collective issue as inspired by the cultural experience in a specific setting – ranging from the spread of popular media, consumerism and technology; the impacts of gentrification; to the abstract ideas of the self and relationships. Audiences are also encouraged to reflect upon the peculiar symbiotic connections between people, culture and place, through the artists’ unique interpretations of their personal encounters with different geographical locations. The screening will be followed by a discussion participated by artists Shir Handelsman, Sujin Lim, Chulayarnnon Siriphol and Gianluca Abbate, as well as curators Jaxton Su and Nien-Ting Chen.
