Museum of Contemporary Art Taipei (MOCA Taipei) --2
Since its inauguration in 2001, the MOCA Taipei has been operated and managed by the Contemporary Art Foundation in Taipei. The museum has combined its historical architecture with contemporary art and technologies, entwining yesterday’s memories with today’s culture and introducing the most innovative and avant-garde visual aesthetics, media technologies, architectural designs, and fashion from Taiwan and overseas. At the same time, the MOCA Taipei continues to promote arts education and encourage local communities to integrate aesthetics and arts appreciation into their daily life.
But the contract between the city government and Contemporary Art Foundation expired on December 31, 2007. From January 1, 2008, Taipei Culture Foundation took charge of the museum’s operation and management.
In the future, the MOCA Taipei will persevere with its mission to promote and motivate multidisciplinary creations both locally and internationally. With rich and diverse art performances, the museum will vigorously introduce creativity into the capital city, art into the local communities, and the ever evolving exhibition technologies into the new life of this historical building.
