About

I、Founding Background

Hu's Art was founded by curator, Sean C.S. Hu, in 2005.
Mr. Hu has always been dedicated in contemporary art relating to cultural issues and social concerns, especially within the context of the Taiwanese society and culture.
In facing the booming globalized developments with contemporary art, Hu's Art was founded due to Mr. Hu's concerns with the limitations and lack of human resources in the contemporary art curatorial industry of Taiwan. With the founding of the company, the intention is to promote contemporary art and to expand people of Taiwan's cultural perspective. Moreover, the core objective is to present Taiwan's viewpoints through international cultural and art interactions.
