My Dear Art

by HSU Hao-hsuan

My Dear Art depicts the wonderful yet absurd world of art from the perspective of an Asian middle-class collector. We hope the audience enjoy this artistic journey, on which we do not talk about academics but stay close to real life. We will visit collections and encounter artists, gallerists, auctioneers, museum and exposition managers. Through our exchanges with these professionals and objective observations, we hope to broaden our horizon and present our in-depth exploration in the film. The production team travelled to different regions in the world including China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Italy, and the UK, raising questions, whether simple or profound, to the world of art collection on behalf of the general public. With these discussions, we hope to paint a picture of diversity and abundance, that is the dazzling world of art.
