Founded in 2015 and re-launched in 2018, Transparent Domain is an international cross-disciplinary collective composed of artists, researchers and curators.  We are interested in expanding the accessibility of art and art education through a participatory and collaborative approach outside the traditional white cube.

The collective name is inspired by a Japanese novel Colourless Tsukuru Tazaiki and His Years of Pilgrimage by Haruki Murakami. We are a colourless vessel. We don't have any colour, but we retain the colour of our own. Because we are transparent, we can be painted in any colour. Through the name, we entrust ourselves to explore the possibilities of art and its relevance with life.

Current babysitter/curator of the collective: Lenette Lua

Founding artists: Lina Choi, Portia Jiabao Li, Elena-Andreea Teleaga, Rie Toguchi, Sean Tseng and Sara Wu

The collective would like to express the massive gratitude towards the following people for being in this journey with us: Vladimir Belev, Wicky Guo, Alex Chao Liu, Rebecca Xu and Rupert Xu
