Asia Art Center and A+ Contemporary are pleased to announce the opening of “Visible Light”, Dong Dawei’s solo exhibition, on May 27th, 2017 at Asia Art Center Taipei ll. The exhibition is on view through July 1st, 2017.

Colors as carrier of light are the pathway into inciting emotions and perceptions; as in our understanding of this world, colors are the intrinsic nature of light and thus the embodiment of “Visible Light”. A crucial facet in understanding Dong Dawei’s work lies in his creative techniques through colors and logic. He ingeniously conflates colors, time and space thoroughly to let it cultivate and grow freely which allows his work to take on a unique appearance as the material and the immaterial (space-time) blend into one another.
