We are proud to share that Wu Chi-Tsung has made a contribution to the Asian Cultural Council (ACC). By donating the proceeds of Cyano-Collage 082 in collaboration with the Sean Kelly Gallery, he wishes to express his gratitude to the long-term generous support of ACC.

The Asian Cultural Council has supported cultural exchange programs for practicing artists, scholars, and arts professionals since 1963. In 2013, Wu Chi-Tsung was granted a six-month ACC Fellowship to travel from Taipei to research contemporary art practices in New York. During his fellowship, Chi-Tsung deepened his awareness of diverse cultural and artistic practices and has further developed his multi-cultural and timeless art language ever since.

自1963年起,亞洲文化協會(Asia Art Council,後簡稱ACC)持續資助亞洲藝術家、學者與從業者的各項文化交流活動。2013年,吳季璁獲得了來自ACC的駐地支持,在紐約進行了為期六個月的駐村活動。紐約多元的文化氛圍豐富了他對於藝術的理解,也啟發了他此後的創作,超越區域文化和時代性的限制。為了支持這個深具啟發性的國際交流計畫,吳季璁近日與尚凱利畫廊合作,向ACC捐贈了《氰山集之八十二》的銷售收入,期待能夠藉此鼓勵與支援年輕藝術家的藝術創作與國際發展。
