'Now in the nineties, the Taiwan art world is a changed place, a place charged with multiple perspective where the abstract, the figurative, and the myriad materials and forms all have their own platform..."New Art, New Tribes: Taiwan Art in the Nineties", aimed at reflecting the realities of Taiwan's collection of peoples, can be roughly divided into the following categories: "The Evaluators"; "The Chroniclers"; "The Activators"; "The Conceptualizers"; "The Urbanites"; and "The Shamans." Such an arrangement facilitates a look at the new climate of Taiwan in the nineties.' - Victoria Lu. Included in this catalogue are artist biographies.
