The exhibition title merges two words – Revolution & Evolution:
Main Entry: rev·o·lu·tion: a sudden, radical, or complete change
Main Entry: evo·lu·tion: a process of change in a certain direction / something evolved
Shelly Wu, Tina Keng Gallery Director, explains the idea behind the title:
Tina wanted a title that incorporated multiple meanings, such as our history and our future. . . I came up with [R/evolution], thinking that although we are starting over, we are not a brand new gallery. We have evolved from a gallery that [has] existed for over 17 years. In Taiwan, we are surely the first gallery with such a large space. [The Tina Keng Gallery] attempts to not only revolutionize gallery space, but also the possibilities for a gallery.
R/evolution includes work from Li-lan and Yun Gee.
Li-lan’s first exhibition with Tina Keng took place in 1995 and she is delighted to continue working with the Tina Keng Gallery and to be a part of their exciting evolution.
Li-lan’s next solo exhibition at the Tina Keng Gallery will take place in the Spring of 2010.
