Cache: From B to Z
The word "Cache" originated from French and originally meant "hidden place, shelter". It was later used in the field of computer engineering and became a computer technology concept, which refers to temporarily storing a part of data on designated hardware or software components so that future requests for that data can be served faster. "Cache" is not only a technology, but also a strategy commonly used by humans in the face of multiple needs, and it represents the wisdom and effort of people to find the best solution in complex situations.
This exhibition is also an exploration of the "best solution" by ShanghART Gallery under the current circumstance. The exhibition carefully stores the 60 selected works of 38 artists in the "cache" of gallery space, and transforms the exhibition hall into a temporary art "database". The works are sorted according to the initials of the artists' names and displayed in a direct and clear way to the audience, and the audience can easily and freely "retrieve" the works and "request" for inspiration.
The exhibition tries to propose such a question to the audience and the artists: In order to be able to "respond" as soon as spring comes, what is the most important thing you want to store in your "cache"?
