Lee Ming-sheng = Art: How One Artist Triggered a National Conversation that Opened the Door to the Democratization of the Arts in Taiwan
Excerpt of abstract: “…This presentation will focus on an analysis of the last two pieces in the series and the relaxation of government control of the arts due to public discourse. I will also discuss Lee Ming-sheng’s artistic career and the history of government control of the arts in Taiwan, as well as provide a primer on Dada and performance art.”

Finding the Next Frankenstein
Excerpt of abstract:“…To substantiate the role of monster hunters I assigned for these dolls, I have drawn correlations through the paintings Night Watch, by Rembrandt Van Rijn, and The Death of Socrates, by Jacques-Louis David. By defining and simulating formal aspects and history associated with these paintings, I am creating a didactic tool that will be used as a field guide in the pursuit of the next Frankenstein.”
