A joint exhibition co-organized by the National Taiwan University of Arts' Graduate Program of Fine Arts — titled "Better Not Be There?” — will showcase the works of young artists of different styles who are currently enrolled at the university.
The exhibition includes 40 oil paintings and Chinese ink brush paintings that show the artists' different perspectives on the future. The nine featured students hope that the artworks will direct the viewers' attention to the world beyond their immediate surroundings.
The exhibition at the National Dr. Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall will run from April 9 through 21, while its opening ceremony will be held on April 12.
The NTUA, which was first established as an art school, was officially re-established as a university in 2000 with five colleges — fine arts, design, communication, performing arts, and humanities.
The fine arts college focuses on visual and plastic arts and has maintained an environment that balances the curriculum between theoretical studies and creation. The college has fostered many talented artists for Taiwan, especially in the field of plastic arts.
