FROM ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TO MOCA
Museum of Contemporary Art, Taipei is Taiwan’s first art museum dedicated in the promotion of contemporary art. The museum’s infrastructure used to be the campus of Jan Cheng Elementary School during Japanese colonial era, and from 1945 to 1993, it was used as the Taipei City Hall. After the city hall was relocated to a new building in the Xinyi planning area in 1994, this cultural heritage site was transformed in May of 2001 into “Museum of Contemporary Art, Taipei” and also the campus of Jan Cheng Junior High School. This is a rare global case of site-sharing for an art museum and a school, and since its founding, MOCA Taipei has also become an important art and cultural hub in Taipei.
MULTI-CULTURAL AND CROSS-BORDER CREATIVITY
MOCA Taipei has long been dedicated in bringing together subjects relating to art, heritage, technology, life, education, and other relevant cultural issues. Through the planning of outstanding and diverse exhibitions and meticulously designed supporting educational events, profound explorations are conducted based on engagements between contemporary visual cultures and social documents. Additionally, focus is also placed on reflecting both local and global outlooks and features, creating dialogues with artists, improving the public’s sense in appreciating art, and expanding the cultural horizon. In addition to the promotion of the most current international contemporary art, MOCA Taipei is also assertively engaged in community building. Through the integration of art with people’s everyday lives, the museum has culminated success in transforming public spaces into spatial assets for the facilitation of art and cultural exhibitions and educational promotions. Due to the tremendous positive feedbacks from the public and the adjacent business owners, MOCA Taipei continues to inject artistic energies into its surrounding communities, and is devoted in bringing more creative aesthetics into our city and to be substantially integrated into people’s lives.
IMPROVE IN A DAY, DO SO EACH DAY, FOREVER BUILDING ON IMPROVEMENT.
In an era of information transparency when all forms of visible and invisible connections and networks are being formed and the need for and technologies of mutual interaction are emerging, a professional museum of contemporary art must be able to catch up with the global trends and keep up with the world while constructing multiple channels to bridge the gap between artists and audience. It needs to orchestrate a comprehensive mechanism that facilitates artistic inspiration, message communication, education and learning, leisure and entertainment, community identification, and cultural construction. Contemporary art itself is of the present, and similarly, we hope this mechanism to be always organic and self-renewing to strengthen itself and open to heterogeneous voices for more possibilities to collectively create an unlimited future of Taiwanese arts and culture.
