In this 21st century, how do we realize art practice in publication? This particular question in this study would be investigated from the exhibition, Cross-Domain Reading & Writing: A Biblio-ecology in Art, held in Taipei Fine Arts Museum. In this exhibition, the unorthodox art creation from eleven artists and the strategic planning from two curators are adopted to rethink the contemporary meaning of “art practice in publication” as well as to explore its potentiality. The most pertinent research object of this study is the publication, “The topic is the exhibition but the exhibited painting album” published for the exhibition, “The topic is the books but the book fair”. Thus, “cross-domain reading & writing” is employed to analyze the research object in this study, “Cross-Domain Reading & Writing: A Biblio-ecology in Art”. It’s an attempt to stir the established concept of “books” and broaden the sphere of imagination via creative reading into the artworks listed in the publication of “Cross-Domain Reading and Writing”.
