90 Magnificent Years of Puppetry: Chen His-Huang’s Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

The preservation of intangible cultural heritage depends on inheritance, promotion, and innovation spanning generations. The “Magnificent 90 Years of Puppetry” exhibition was put together to celebrate the 90th birthday of puppet master Chen His-Huang.

“Yesterday” refers to tradition. Traditional restoration techniques have been used to present Master Chen’s works to demonstrate the paint strokes and fine stitching of this traditional art.
“Today” refers to inheritance. The exhibition shows works by teachers and students on Master Chen’s learning program over the last ten years.

“Tomorrow” is about innovation. Creative works by Master Chen’s former students show how the artists broke through the barriers of tradition to create new looks for the art that mark a complete break from the past.
Exhibition dates: Tuesday 20 July 2021–Sunday 27 February 2022
Venue: Kaohsiung Museum of Shadow Puppet (No. 42, Gangshan South Road, Gangshan District, Kaohsiung City)
