The Taipei Fine Arts Museum celebrates its 30th anniversary this year with Revisiting New Horizons, which primarily focuses on the first ten years of the museum’s history and its impact on the flourishing of contemporary art in Taiwan. In addition to a retrospective exhibition, the museum is organising special programmes and events to explore its position in the international art world. The exhibition will include images and artworks from the inception of the museum, alongside documentation of artists working within the different gallery spaces.
One of the highlights of the exhibition is a series of recorded interviews, films, blueprints and photographs pertaining to the museum’s design. Conceptualised by Kao Ehr-Pan, the architecture of the museum has continued to resonate deeply with the Taiwanese people. Kao sought to incorporate sensibilities of both East and West within the museum space, striving towards a balance between functionalism and style.
Revisiting New Horizons is on until 1 September.
