GALLERY SHOW, “LILT: NEW WORK BY JACQUE LIU,” OPENS MARCH 12, 2016


Lansdowne, PA---The Lansdowne Arts Board is pleased to announce the work of contemporary visual artist Jacque Liu, the second show in its inaugural Juried Solo Exhibition Series. The show will be on view from March 12 through May 1, 2016. An opening reception is scheduled for Saturday, March 12, 2016 from 4 PM - 8 PM.

Artists in this exhibition series were selected by one of Philadelphia’s most distinguished gallery owners, Bridgette Mayer of Philadelphia’s Bridgette Mayer Gallery. Founded in 2001, the Bridgette Mayer Gallery is one of Philadelphia’s preeminent contemporary galleries, and has earned a national reputation for finding and cultivating American abstract artists.

Jacque Liu was born in Taipei, Taiwan and currently lives in Philadelphia, PA. He received an M.F.A. from Cranbrook Academy of Art, a B.F.A. from Alfred University, and a Fulbright Scholarship to study at the Universität der Künste Berlin. He has exhibited nationally and internationally, and is the recipient of numerous awards and grants. His work and projects have been reviewed in media such as The New York Times, Newsweek, National Public Radio, and The Philadelphia Inquirer.

“Throughout every body of work that I make, there seems to be a desire to understand the notion of place,” explains Liu, who’s travelled extensively and lived in places such as Taipei, St. Louis, Berlin, and Detroit, before landing in Philadelphia in 2008.

“To understand place,” Liu continues, “my eye gravitates towards everyday architectural elements, often focusing on windows, doors, vents, staircases, chairs, and abandoned houses in the vastness of a cityscape.”

Lilt is a recent body of work that consists of wooden shelves with acrylic sheets placed upon them. Both the wood and the acrylic forms were created based on shapes that Liu found within urban environments. The work recalls Liu's memory of places, re-contextualizing his encountered sites and objects.

“This is an exciting opportunity for the Board, the 20*20 House, and the borough of Lansdowne,” says Megan Halsey, President of Lansdowne’s Arts Board. “Collaborating with a well-respected gallery owner like Bridgette Mayer raises the profile of this new art space. The gallery shows will be important additions to Lansdowne's ongoing calendar of art and music events, and will help build our identity as a vibrant artistic community.”

​Over the next two years, the Juried Solo Exhibition Series will provide ​eight emerging and established regional artists the opportunity to showcase their work in an up-and-coming arts space, the newly renovated ​20*20 House.
