Diplomacy is inspired by the university's historic Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall, which houses the Yeh Gallery. Eleven international artists have either created site-responsive works that respond to the building's unique architecture and Cold War history, or present works that relate to themes the building evokes, namely soft power, national identity, and diplomacy. Participating artists include Christopher K. Ho, Lena Henke, Shahpour Pouyan, Reuven Israel, Alex Hayden, Carla Edwards, Anton Ginzburg, Ryan Flores, Hai-Hsin Huang, Claudia Martinez Garay, and Claudia Pena Salinas. Exhibition is curated by Owen Duffy.
