Address:No. 2 Xiangyang Road, Zhongzheng District, Taipei City, Taiwan 100
To showcase the political, economic, and social developments of Taiwan after World War II, the Ministry of Culture and the National Taiwan Museum have jointly launched a special exhibition featuring historical documents of the Taiwan Provincial Assembly.
Titled "The Historical Archives of the Taiwan Provincial Assembly,” the special exhibition chronicles the course of the country's autonomy over the past 60 years in four stages — the Taiwan Provincial Consultative Council (臺灣省諮議會), the Interim Taiwan Provincial Assembly (臺灣省臨時省議會), the Taiwan Provincial Legislature (臺灣省參議會), and the Taiwan Provincial Assembly (臺灣省議會).
Lee Yuan-chuan (李源泉), a former spokesperson for the Taiwan Provincial Consultative Council, said the special exhibition is historically relevant because it documents some of Taiwan's most important political chapters, including Taiwan's first election, land reform program, political participation under martial law, and the initiation of social freedom and human rights.
More than 20 former provincial councilors, including Yang Yu-cheng (楊玉城), Chiu Shih-feng (邱仕豐), Miao Su-fang (苗素芳), and Kao Chung-hsi (高崇熙), as well as several incumbent consultative councilors, attended the opening of the exhibition on Jan. 24.
The exhibition will run until June 11 at the National Taiwan Museum. After its five-month showing in Taipei, the exhibition will be held at other museums and university campuses around the country.
