In 2013, Isa Ho, a Taiwanese digital and contemporary photographer, moved into Westbeth Artists Housing after receiving a New York Fellowship from the Asian Cultural Council. Inspired by the Westbeth residents’ attitude toward creative work and their composure in the face of life’s ups and downs, Ho decided to begin the Westbeth Project, photographing the building’s spaces, taking portraits of artists in their apartment environments, and making audio-visual records of interviews.
“The exhibition is more than just a summary of Ho’s photography project and interview records. It is also a demonstration of Taiwanese artists’ concern for humanity and their desire to protect and preserve history beyond borders” – Huichun Chang, director of Taipei Cultural Center in New York.
Opening Reception: Friday, May 5, 2023, 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
