Under Festival coordinators Hemans Yu and Ted Dawson, the visual
arts portion of True North Festival in Taiwan consisted of a 3 month
exhibition of contemporary Canadian Landscape Art at the Kaohsiung
Museum of Fine Arts.
The Foundation engaged Canadian curator David Liss (formerly of the
Saidye Bronfman Centre for the Arts in Montreal) to realize the
exhibition. Of the 16 artists showcased in this exhibition, David
Elliot, Suzy Lake, Landon Mackenzie, Reinhard Reitzenstein, Hemans
Yu, and Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun personally attended the opening.
At the conclusion of its run in March 1999, the show had attracted
over 100,000 visitors.
