Published in conjunction with Tu Wei-Cheng's 'Confucius Dancing Mambo,' an exhibition following his residency at Providence University, Taichung. 

'From his invention, excavation, and exhibition of the 'Bu Num Civilization' to more recent projects as 'By Day, By Night,' or '(Some) Special Things a Museum Can Do' at the Rockbund Art Museum in Shanghai, Tu’s work blends public experiences and memories of ancient relics with Contemporary art. The artist thus brings into question the relationships between old and new, traditional and contemporary, authentic and counterfeit, virtual and real, creation and curating, individual and system, and art and market.' (Excerpt from Tina Keng Gallery)
