Yuyu Yang_A Centennial Retrospective

The National Museum of History (NMH) is collaborating with the Yuyu Yang Museum to host the art exhibition “Yuyu Yang: A Centennial Retrospective (英風百年-楊英風藝術大展)” starting May 18, in celebration of the late artist Yuyu Yang’s 100th birthday.


Yuyu Yang (1926-1997), born Yang Ying-feng (楊英風), was invited to create a Buddha sculpture for the NMH’s opening in 1995 and held his first solo exhibition at the museum in 1960. In the 1970s, he was invited again to participate in the landscape design of the museum compound, showcasing his distinctive avant-garde artistic visions.


Curated by art scholar Hsiao Chong-ray (蕭瓊瑞), this exhibition features over 300 artworks and archives from Yang, highlighting his multifaceted art journey and contributions to Taiwan and the world. 


The inauguration of the exhibition is set for May 18, coinciding with International Museum Day. The NMH aims to emphasize the role of museums in education and research while paying tribute to this great artist through this exhibition. 


“Yuyu Yang: A Centennial Retrospective” will run from May 18 to Aug. 18 at the National Taiwan Craft Research and Development Institute Taipei Branch. For more information, please visit NMH’s website
