The title of this exhibition does not provide any descriptive or diagnostic information. On the contrary it is an emotional and simple move. This show intentionally minimize the traditional sense of curatorial clues, themes, chronologies and taxonomic restrictions added to works or artists. In a sense, “We Love Video This Summer” is a free rehearsal for practitioners in a specific space of authigenic dialogue, communication, and performance. The artists exhibited are from different countries, regions, cultures and historical environments, with all kinds of creative backgrounds, concepts and contexts. Some of them are long-time pioneer explorers of video art, some are young artists with passion and faith of video language or video itself, while some others are people who walk on this path because of their belief in changing the world with the power of video art. In this exhibition, the gallery tries to build a platform for these explorers and practitioners for the oncoming, tuber-like narrative of freedom.
Featured artists are Pia Myrvold, Pak Sheung Chuen, Adam Pendleton, Qiu Anxiong, Michal Rovner, Shen Ruijun, Song Dong, teamLab, Tseng Yu-Chin, Tsui Kuang-Yu, Bill Viola, Morgan Wong and Yuan Goang-Ming.
