關於大河 About Us
The person in charge, Mr. Hung Juei-Yi, has more than thirty years experience in the world of art. In 1983, he started the “Caves Art Center” in Taipei together with his cousin Hung Ping-Tao, laying a solid foundation. He went to Taichung in 1992 to found the “Style Gallery” on Jingming 1st Street, where he also built a pedestrian area. Together with Fine Arts Departments, he organized cultural events, such as outdoor sculpture installation art exhibitions, which led to a wave of comprehensive community development across Taiwan. In 1998, he created the new brand “River Art,” devoting himself as a long-term agent for outstanding contemporary artists and thus becoming specialized in the art industry. At the beginning of 2012, River Art, which was relocated in Miaoli’s famous tourist attraction Sanyi Shuimei Woodcarving Street, created a brand-new contemporary art space, bringing people closer to art and also injecting new life into the old street lined with traditional arts and crafts shops.
In the past, River Art used its keen eye to discover the Taiwanese artists Li Chen and Hung Yi, who now shine on the international stage. When the second generation started to join in one after the other from 2009 onwards, the focus turned to the international market. Without restrictions of geography or media, there was an active search for a new generation of artists with a unique style and potential, with the hope of leading outstanding artists to shine on the world stage. After 2013, the market area was further expanded. A succession of important artists’ exhibitions was held, such as Liu Kuo-Sung, Hsiao Chin, Chiu Ya-Tsai, and Yayoi Kusama, to link modern and contemporary art together and to have connection with international platform.
The river gave birth to life and also paved the way for civilization. This continuously-stretching lifeline nourishes the people of different lands, creating an extraordinary fertile ground for art. This is our mission, allowing artists to have a wide stage and showing the different depths of culture as well as creations with more vitality. In the future, we will continue to grow with a steady pace, moving beyond Taiwan with an international perspective so as to achieve a broader artistic vision!
