Under the support of the Ministry of Culture and the Council of Indigenous Peoples, Australia's 10th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art will be presenting "Between Earth and Sky: Indigenous Contemporary Art from Taiwan" at the Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art from Dec. 4 until April 25, 2022.
The Taiwan music, film, and live project Small Island Big Song brought together 15 musicians from 10 island nations of the Pacific and Indian Oceans during the pandemic to convey the tragedy of ocean pollution through remote collaboration.
For the first time, the Ministry of Culture leveraged an OTT platform to broadcast high-quality Taiwanese films in India, encouraging Indian audiences to learn about Taiwan through films and increase their interest in Taiwan. The selected films will demonstrate the diversity and richness in the culture of Taiwan.

"Greetings from the Whale" is the most famous landmark in Tainan’s Gangbin Historical Park. Standing 23 meters long, ten meters wide, and eight meters high, the most impressive aspect of the whole work is that not a single pillar or rivet was used in the construction process. A piece of installation art that looks like it leaped from the pages of a fairytale, the whale sits quietly next to the small fishing port with an air of vibrancy and romance.
