Exhibition

Yao-Chi City, Taiwanese Paranormal Literature and Contemporary Art Exhibition

Taiwan’s horror ‘heritage’, stretching back three millennia, is a treasure trove of stories about the innumerable yōkai (monsters, ghouls, and goblins) that have haunted this island from the shadowy depths of its mountain forests to the dimly lit corners of its modern cities. Yao-Chi City, Taiwanese Paranormal Literature and Contemporary Art Exhibition explores the horror genre in Taiwan through related works of literature and art, graphic novels, VR/AR, installations, performances games, and parades. The exhibition weaves together literature, folk traditions, and contemporary cultural settings to give all manner of demons and monsters their proper moment in the spotlight.
