Hive Becoming Program
As a part of Hive Center for Contemporary Art’s long-term support for young artists, Hive Becoming Program aims to highlight, research, and discuss their creative states and results. Since 2017, Hive Becoming Program has further extended its concept, to pursue greater openness and flexibility of art, continuously support and encourage the individual differences and diversity of artists’ creation. The Program doesn’t content itself with the simple artistic depictions of, measurements of, and responses to the social reality, but still hopes to discover and cultivate the foresight and sharpness artists should possess, and even the possible new engagement in shaping the waves of contemporary art. The concept “becoming”, which underlines the rheological property of things, was proposed by the French post-modern philosopher G. Deleuze, coincidentally contrasts with the concept of static “being” held by Logocentrism. This explains why HBP has been named “Becoming” and what its original intention is.
