Selected for the A Portrait of Taiwan in Perth project
Mel Dare is one of 20 artists invited to participate in the A Portrait of Taiwan in Perth project curated by Ashley Yihsin Chang in affiliation with Turner Galleries. Each Taiwanese participant was paired with a local artist. They had an initial discussion about a significant cultural object of the Taiwanese participant then the artist produced a photographic portrait of the subject with their object and 250 words by both participant. In 2018 the artists will produce works for an exhibition about this experience at Midland Junction Art Centre.
