Address:No. 2 Wuchuan West Road Section 1, Taichung, Taiwan
One of the world's longest-running international print exhibitions will take place at the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts in Taichung City from Aug. 16 to Oct. 26.
The International Biennial Print Exhibit of the Republic of China was established in 1983 by renowned print artists such as Liao Shiou-ping (廖修平). The exhibition serves as a platform for uncovering new talent in printmaking as well as a channel of cultural exchange between Taiwan and the global art community.
Now in its 31st year, the biennial exhibition received more than 900 entries from 56 countries and regions around the world. The 15 award-winning finalists include those from Taiwan, China, Japan, and Thailand, as well as Italy and Australia.
An international printmakers' forum featuring several keynote speakers and an artist workshop will take place alongside the exhibition on Aug. 17. Those who wish to meet several award-winning foreign printmakers can sign up for the event here.
The Taichung museum will also host a series of fringe events to complement the biennial, including a parent-and-child woodcutting classroom, weekend screenings of printmaking documentaries, and a cylinder printing workshop.
