Women Adventurers: Five Eras of Taiwanese Art, 1930-1983

Date :2013/06/22 - 2013/09/29
Venue:Gallery 2A&2B
Starting with the premise of modernity, the exhibition discusses the work of senior-generation women artists who produced work during the period from 1930 to 1983. This half-century span saw the Japanese colonization of Taiwan, the institutionalization of art teacher education in the post-war 1950s, the proliferation of modern art groups in the 1960s, the nativist trend of the 1970s, and the establishment of fine arts museums in the 1980s, which heralded Taiwan’s drive towards internationalization. Expressing emotions and pursuing modernity with imagery, symbolism, desire and rationality, the artists included in this exhibition suggest the plentiful creative energy of Taiwan’s women artists. Representative works of each artist’s respective period of activity, and important examples of their sustained influence are presented in the exhibition.

Gallery 1A&1B
Established in 1983 as Taiwan’s first modern art museum, the Taipei Fine Arts Museum is holding the special exhibition TFAM before and after 1983 for the occasion of its 30th anniversary this year. Before / after 1983 takes as its point of departure the competition and exhibition held biennially from 1984 until 1994 titled New Horizons: Contemporary Trends in Chinese Art, which featured patterns of innovation and promoted a dialog with Taiwan’s emerging contemporary art scene. The exhibition series clearly embodied the energy of contemporary art in Taiwan during the museum’s first decade of operation, and set the stage for the next phase of Taiwanese contemporary art that has started to develop since the 1990s.
