International pop star A-MIT curates the next part of The Avant/Garde Diaries event series in Taipei, Taiwan
The Avant/Garde Diaries curated event series is pleased to announce that our next international festival of art, fashion, and music is taking place in Taipei, Taiwan. Curated by the international pop star A-MIT Gulilai, also known as A-Mei, “The Avant/Garde Diaries: Taipei” explores the connection between the past and the future – the sanctity of tradition and the promise of technological innovation – by utilizing the music and voice of A-MIT, a genre-breaking performer of Formosan aboriginal origin.
The three-day event takes place from November 9–11 in Taipei’s Huashan 1914 Creative Park, an early twentieth-century winery turned twenty-first century art destination, which perfectly encapsulates the event’s theme of interweaving an indigenous past and hyper-modern present. Eight established and rising Taiwanese sound, light, and digital media artists will use curator A-MIT's voice in a range of interactive and all-encompassing works that bring to light the nation’s rich native history while also showcasing the vibrant technological innovations of a country on the cutting edge.
