Isle to Isle

Series

“Isle to Isle” is set to return for its 4th edition, continuing the excitement of interpreting the spirit of exchanging cultures and communicating through the arts to connect two islands – Penang and Taiwan – together. Besides displaying the charming side of Taiwan’s new culture, ranging from the evolution of traditional art forms to the revolution of modern creative industries, “Isle to Isle” highlights the connection between Taiwan’s cultural background and its humanistic civilisation. “Taiwan Design Week”, a series of events dotted with bursting moments of inspiration and creativity, is the new addition to this year’s itinerary. Co-curated by VERSE, the series will feature a design exhibition titled “Beyond Aesthetic”, which encompasses four major themes, namely public architecture, arts and cultural event planning, regional anthropology, and popular culture. Apart from the exhibition, two engaging themed forums – ‘Inspiring Beauty’ and ‘Design and Community Power’ – will be held alongside the exhibition. “Isle to Isle” is presented by George Town Festival, Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Malaysia, and Penang City Eye.

Inspiring Beauty

Over a decade, Taiwan went through a silent cultural revolution. New identities and new aesthetics evolve in their daily life and Government agencies, mega cultural and creative exhibitions, and design fairs become annual cultural events. Little by little, aesthetics are emerging at every corner. Whether it’s public architecture, popular culture to regional anthropology, change is happening.

However, the value of design is more than creating “beauty”, it can bring up a new identity to solve public issues, and bridge the gap of understanding of society.

This exhibition showcases Taiwan’s excellent designs over the past few years, through the sharing of the idea and how it changes the different sectors of Taiwan, Malaysia’s design and creative industry players not only gain enlightening insights but also open doors for a new cultural dialogue with Taiwan counterparts.
