Dear Reader,

Spectrosynthesis - Asian LGBTQ Issues and Art Now, the first travelling LGBTQ art exhibition in Asia, debuted at MOCA, Taipei, Taiwan from September 9 to November 5, 2017. It freatures around 50 works by 22 artists. The artists are selected through their shared culture, language and ethnicity. However some of them are expatriates. Frieze magazine has written a review of the exhibition in which they notice a gender bias in the exhibtion, it only includes three women and one trans person amongst 22 artists. And then Frieze continues their review by highlighting the male artists... The artists included in Spectrosynthesis are: Jimmy Ong, Wang Liang-Yin, Jun-Jieh Wang, Wang Haiyang, Xi Ya Die, Hou Chun-Ming, Chen Chien-Pei, Hsi Shih-Pin, Tao Hui, Shiy De-Jinn, Chuang Chih-Wei, Wu Tsang, Tzeng Yi-Hsin, Martin Wong, Ming Wong, Tseng Kwong Chi, Samson Young, Yan Xing, Wen Hsin, Ho Tam, Su Hui-Yu and Fu-sheng Ku.
