'The Taipei Country Art Exhibition (TCAE) started the transformation of official art exhibitions in the 1990s. It became not only a competition that abolished traditional art media categories, but also a precursor of outdoor installation in government-sponsored art exhibitions. This book is edited by art historian Chiang Po-shin. The compilation includes two hundred relevant archives, along with articles written by invited art critics Lu Pei-yi, Yu Wei, Chen Kuan-yu, and Yang Chia-hsuan. Inspired by the environment, trash, noise, images, and the human body, these articles were written from various perspectives to analyze how the TCAE utilizes avant-garde experimentation within and outside the systems, and how this made the Tamsui River become a site where modern art evolved. This collective effort is to provide an exhibition history that entails both local context and golbal perspective.' - Excerpted from the book back page
