The recently published book Contemporary Art Curating in Taiwan (1992-2012) stands as a resistance to the forgotten history in our “society of zero archive,” where many precious research references have been washed away in people’s memories in time. In this talk, Lu Pei-Yi and her research team will present their three years’ research process to reveal how this book on the local curatorial practices has been conceived.
Contemporary Art Curating in Taiwan (1992-2012) is a research and writing project to investigate the landscape of contemporary art curating in Taiwan since the 90s. The term “contemporary” draws a remark on the political climate in the post-martial law period in the late 80s and the following social changes, and further pinpoints the emergence of theme exhibitions in the 90s as an unsatisfactory voice responding to the existing art institutions as well as a tentative departure point for this research. The progression of curatorial concepts, the regeneration of curatorial practices, and influential exhibition projects of these twenty years are highlighted in this book, with the beginning case study on the exhibition Dis\Continuity: Religion, Shamanism, Nature. The book features four essays to address the development of contemporary art curating in Taiwan, the relevant debates and struggles, five interviews with local curators, ten articles to discuss the milestone setting exhibitions and their resulting issues and curatorial awareness, and a chronological chart for one hundred exhibitions. Through making the efforts to trace, document, edit, discuss and write about these ongoing and yet-to-be identified practices, this research contours the development of contemporary art curating in Taiwan and witnesses their experimental energy, offering a methodology to construct and investigate the local problematic in the age of globalization.
