Museum Of Contemporary Art Taipei
WONDERLAND is the first multi-artform survey exhibition of Australian art in Taiwan. It conveys the dynamic processes of rethinking Australia's identity, its evolving values, and ever growing sense of environmental responsibility.
In surveying contemporary art the exhibition brings an unusual cross-section of media, art forms and processes. Explored in their own right the 45 artworks created by 27 artists, offer diverse pathways leading to another kind of wonderland: one found in inspiration, curiosity, and unexpected encounters.
A great work of art can take us to places in our heart, soul and mind impossible to reach in any other way. It is how culture is shared between one place and another. We experience it in our own unique individual way but the sharing benefits us all as a community. We all hope the exhibition expresses not only a fresh view of Australia but also new ways of enjoying art.
Nearly 120 public programs and free events accompanied the exhibition, including weekly activities with the Taipei Zoo, home to 13 Australian koalas.
