Art Sync is a creative collaboration between artists from two different countries as well as a comprehensive study of the efforts and means used during this unique collaborate process. It is an experience of comparison and compromise between the individual and the collective work ethic. Art Sync was initiated by selecting four artists from both Taiwan and New York. A classic formalism is more strongly presented in the selected Taiwanese artists’ work while the New York artists exude a more expressionistic paradigm. The alternate working methods in addition to the different cultural backgrounds of the artists give this collaborative synchronization a richer and more diverse palette to work from.
Art Sync will house works created under a diversity of circumstances: solo and collaborative works, collaborative efforts created during the Art Sync process as well as an in-depth chronology of direct communication among all artists involved. The participating artist teams are Fanny Allié & Hoho Lin, Eric Bessel & Kai-Yuan Tszen, Brad Darcy & Yu-San Huang and MaryKate Maher & Yin-Ling Chin.
Art Sync is Curated by NuNu Hung and Hao-Yi Chen

Soapbox Gallery is founded by sculptor Jimmy Greenfield and the gallery space is dedicated to providing a forum for visual artists to engage in the issues of our time and express themselves publicly without censorship. In the tradition of the humble yet mighty soapbox that encouraged free speech and played a role in the development of our social contract, provocative work can stir public debate, raise consciousness, and even spur social evolution. Too many of us despair at the lack of content in work celebrated by the ART world. Soapbox Gallery challenges artists to speak out and be relevant.
