以在地現實做為我們的問題意識,以書寫抵抗遺忘。

地點:台北當代藝術中心,台北市保安街49巷11號

無歷史感的「無檔案社會」中,許多珍貴的研究史料無法通過時間的考驗而漸漸流逝,被人們既緩慢又快速的忘記,新出版的《台灣當代藝術策展二十年》是對歷史遺忘的拒絕。在本講座中呂佩怡及研究團隊將以「一本策展史專書如何誕生」為主軸,分享此策展研究三年計畫的實踐樣貌與過程。

《台灣當代藝術策展二十年》一書針對九○年以來台灣當代藝術策展進行研究與書寫實踐。本書將「當代」此一在地時間點視為與八○年中後期政治解嚴與社會變動相關,更明確地將九○年代專題展覽的出現,以及對應對既有藝術機制之不滿,做為台灣當代策展研究的暫時性起點。以1992年「延續與斷裂:宗教、巫術、自然」專題展作為開端,整理到2012年,標舉出在此二十年間策展概念的推進、策展實踐層面的翻新、以及對後續產生影響力的展覽。本書內容包括四篇專文討論台灣當代策展歷程、議題與困境;五篇策展前線人物的訪談;以及十篇文章書寫台灣策展二十年來里程碑展覽與其衍生的策展議題,並收錄一百檔重要展覽的年表。透過回溯、整理、記錄、討論、書寫,為渾沌、未定案、現在進行中的台灣當代藝術策展勾勒出大致的風貌,見證其百花齊放的實驗性能量,並期待可以提供一種全球化時代下在地的問題意識、觀察與議題處理的方法。

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.
