Esteemed Professor Chu Teh-I was the Director of the Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts (located on the campus of the Taipei National University of the Arts), until January 2018.  Turner Galleries staff and artist Gregory Pryor met with him in 2016 and toured the amazing Museum.  This meeting initiated the exciting Residency Exchange between Turner Galleries in Perth and KdMoFA in Taipei over 2017 and 2018.

Professor Chu is one of the key figures in contemporary art, art education and arts administration in Taiwan; he has made a substantial contribution to higher education and international exchange. Chu has been involved with many public arts projects and the establishment of the Art Bank in Taiwan. He is also a committee member of the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts and the Taipei Fine Arts Museum, as well as the advisor for the visual arts section of the Ministry of Culture and the National Culture and Arts Foundation. Chu is also a respected artist whose practice focuses on abstract painting. He has exhibited internationally both in solo and joint exhibitions. His works are in many private and public collections.

Professor Chu has now retired as Director of KdMoFA, and is working as an International Curator at Large, and is visiting Western Australia for two weeks from 25 April 2018.

A highlight of his stay in Perth will be an illustrated public lecture, at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts on Saturday 28 April, 2-3pm.  His talk will cover the Kuandu Biennale and other major KdMoFA exhibitions, their progressive residency program and how the Museum works with their international counterparts to engage with the most vibrant arts and cultural centres in the Asian region and beyond.  This talk is free, but rsvp is essential by following this link and filling out the simple form.
