Taipei Biennial, artists and art
The Taipei Biennial is the most important exhibition for promoting contemporary art held by the Taipei Fine Arts Museum. In order to promote modern and contemporary art, starting in 1984 and until 1991 the Taipei Fine Arts Museum hosted the exhibition projects Contemporary Art trends in the R.O.C and An Exhibition of Contemporary Chinese Sculpture in the Republic of China on alternate years. In 1992, these two exhibitions were consolidated to form the The Taipei Biennial of Contemporary Art, which was the precursor to the Taipei Biennial that everyone is familiar with today. In its early years the artists participating in the exhibition were selected through an open judging process.
