This exhibition was the first large-scale group show of Taiwanese contemporary art, held outside Taiwan. Organised by the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney and Taipei Fine Art Museum, the exhibition travelled to several art museums in Australia. This catalogue aims to give an overview of Taiwanese art, and includes essays by both Taiwanese and Australian scholars and art critics, with themes ranging from art historical essays to reports on the contemporary art scene in Taiwan. Biographies of participating artists are included in the catalogue.
