Independent Art Spaces of Taiwan|Public Programs

The Independent Art Spaces of Taiwan (IAST) is a research project undertaken by the Hong Kong-based Asia Art Archive (AAA) in Taiwan, which aims to collate primary sources and construct a documentary archive of independent art spaces in Taiwan from the 1980s to the early 21st century. In the course of this project, C-LAB will co-organize a series of public programs with AAA, so as to expand the research results and promote multilateral dialogues. We seek to forge connections among art spaces, art practitioners, and art historians on the basis of the phased results of this project. Through public sharing and exchange in the forms of talk, workshop, and forum, we expect to stimulate discussions on the history of art spaces as well as to investigate the issues and methodologies involved in art archives in the digital age.
