LIANG GALLERY 2021 ART BASEL HONG KONG BROCHURE

藝廊薈萃
戰後華人的藝術結晶
專案簡介
2021 年的香港巴塞爾藝術展,以學術研究、時代議題聞名的尊彩藝術中心推出《永恆的東方符碼:戰後華人藝術》一冊,介紹五位台灣藝術家的畫作。展出作品創作於 1960 至 2000 年間,藉跨越國界與年代的畫中世界,傳達半世紀前的歷史風貌與堅毅的生命力。1980 年代的華人藝術革新運動展現了二戰後人心保守卻奮發、社會戒嚴卻又前衛的氛圍,企圖以西方抽象主義開展出屬於華人的藝術世紀。這些藝術家成為第一批深具「東方符碼」特色的先鋒,為時代孕育最珍貴的文化成果。
Background
At 2021 Art Basel Hong Kong, Liang Gallery launched the brochure "Eternal Symbols of the Orient: Post-War Chinese Art", curating the works of five well-known modern Taiwanese artists. The selected works are created between 1960-2000. They present the unswerving vitality of creation from different eras over the last half century, spanning the postwar Chinese art revolution began in the 1960s and peaked in the 1980s. This wave of art innovation in the 1980s demonstrated the conservative but aggressive attitude after World War II. Fusing western abstraction of thought with the ideographic spirit of Oriental ink tradition, a new style has been created, and so written a unique and rich cultural chapter in postwar Chinese art history.
設計方案
畫冊封面以「永恆的東方符碼」為核心,將中文豎立以直式排版、英文遵循同邏輯,讓矚目的彩色畫作躍升主角,用一片色彩斑斕譜寫故事。這本雙封面的畫冊以抽象的色塊呈現,呼應東方藝術家戰後濃烈而大膽的情懷,在畫布上揮灑飽滿的內在能量。內頁的圖文編排留下大面積的白底,讓平面的留白化作現實的空間,引導閱讀者投射更多想像。雖是追朔半世紀前的人文光景,卻盡以現代手法呈現;畫冊以理性直覺的編排方法,完整傳達藝術家創作的意念。
Design
The book design is inspired by the cover title "Eternal Symbols of the Orient". The Chinese word is erected in a vertical layout, and the English word follows the same logic, allowing the eye-catching artwork to compose the story with colorful paintings. This double-cover brochure is presented in abstract color blocks, echoing the strong and bold sentiments of postwar Chinese artists, swaying their inner energy on the canvas. The inner page leaves a large area of white background, turning the blank space into a concrete area, and guiding the reader to explore their imagination. Although those humanistic scene traces back to almost half century ago, the avant-garde artists presented it with modern techniques; this brochure is arranged in a rational and intuitive way, to fully convey the artist's extraordinary power.
