Asian Art Biennial

Taichung, Taiwan

Special Features by UiU:

The Asian Art Biennial was first organized by the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts in 2007. The mission of this Biennial is to explore how a multiplicity of perspectives have come to inform our contemporary reality, and how such a reality, characterized by high degrees of equivocality, has in turn enriched the cultural perspectives of Asia.

As the economic performance of Asian countries continues to attract global attention, issues related to cultural perspectives and aesthetic foundations of Asia have become key points of interest in the world of contemporary arts. Enriched by the diversity of cultural perspectives, Asian contemporary arts have flourished and expanded to meet the aesthetic needs of our time.

Serving as an important platform of artistic exchange between Taiwan and the international arts community, the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts has always been keen to facilitate intercultural dialogues through art, hoping that extensive communication and discussion on the subject will enhance the understanding of contemporary Asia and its dynamic artistic creativity.
