Art Histories of a Forever War:

Modernism between Space and Home

The exhibition at Taipei Fine Arts Museum (16/10/21-20/2/22) is an exploration of modern art in postwar Taiwan and the enduring resonances of this historical milieu. Paying tribute to a generation of pioneer practitioners in Taiwan art history who crystalised modern art through a series of artistic breakthroughs and debates, the exhibition foregrounds the modern art masterpieces housed in the Taipei Fine Arts Museum, including works of Li Yuan-Chia, Chin Sung, Liu Kuo-Sung, Hsiao Chin, Lee Shi-Chi, and Han Hsiang-Ning as well as works by modernist architects Wang Da Hong and Chen Chi-Kwan and thirteen representative contemporary artists.
