Curators’ Intensive Taipei 19—International Conference and Workshops (CIT19): Launched at Taipei Fine Arts Museum from October 10 to 14, 2019
The National Culture and Arts Foundation (NCAF) and the Taipei Fine Arts Museum (TFAM) are honored to announce the launch of the Curators’ Intensive Taipei 19: International Conference and Workshops (CIT19) which is going to take place at the TFAM from October 10 to 14, 2019. The 3-day international conference (October 11-13, Friday-Sunday) features a star-studded line-up of artistic and cultural practitioners, curators and scholars from home and abroad. The two workshops are scheduled respectively on October 10 and 14.
As a platform established by the ARTWAVE─Taiwan International Arts Network, the CIT19 accentuates the discussion and contemplation on the profession of contemporary curating, insofar as to echo the diversification of contemporary curatorial approaches, forge a congenial platform for international dialogue and exchange, build up a strong network of art practitioners, and get the curatorial education into a state of greater profoundness.
The contemporary curating began to sprout in Taiwan in the 1990s. The NCAF and the TFAM have taken a bellwether role in vigorously supporting and incubating the diverse developments of Taiwanese talents for curating. Based on the 20 years’ root-taking development of curatorial studies in Taiwan, the CIT19 international conference is dedicated to constructing Taiwan’s curatorial history and advancing knowledge about curating.
