Taipei Times: Artist Wu Chi-Tsung has been nominated for the Artes Mundi Prize, one of the world’s top art awards

Artes Mundi - Wu Chi-Tsung

Young Taiwanese artist Wu Chi-Tsung is one of eight short-listed artists for the Artes Mundi Prize (Arts of the World) awarded by the National Museum, Cardiff, UK, the largest international prize awarded to an individual artist. This is the second year for the prestigious award and the first time for a Taiwanese artist to be nominated.

Wu, whose work is noteworthy for its exploration of imagery via video, photography and mechanical instal-lation, is currently exhibiting his art for the first time in the UK at the Artes Mundi exhibition that ends on May 7.

The eight selected artists — from India, Finland, South America, Europe and Taiwan — are regarded as having made significant contributions to the world’s understanding about the human condition. The prize will be awarded to one of the selected artists on March 31.
