The Museum of Contemporary Art Taipei is located in a historic Japanese-era building once used as Chenggong Elementary School. After Taiwan's retrocession, the building housed the Taipei City Hall. When City Hall moved to Xinyi District in 1994, the building was turned into an art museum. The museum was officially renamed in 2000 as the Museum of Contemporary Art Taipei. Free audio guide service and group tours are available.

    We went there, but its closed. But, still, the beauty of the arts outside are astonishing. Must-go place when you visit Taiwan.

    What is Contemporary?


    I came to the museum with high expectations. I assumed that I was going to see work by artists creating in the late twentieth century and into the twenty first. However, in fact most of the work shown was created by artists no longer feeding the worms. I would be surprised to learn if any of the exhibited material was produced after the sixth decade of the last century, which brings me to the question posed in the title to this review. If the word is intended to refer to the present, then the miss is entire. However, if the word is intended to mean “at the same time, then possibly we have something.

    Far beyond expectations


    I didn't expect much, but found a fair bit of what was on display exciting. The museum exhibits are largely each in their own room, and largely multimedia. Two highlights for me were The War That Never Was and the This Is Very Simple, I Can Do It. Great stuff. Well worth a couple of hours of your time.

    I made a special trip from 45 mins away to see this museum and they only had one small exhibit on display. A waste of time. If and when they are ever fully operational I think they might have some nice things to see. The building looks old but inviting and the location is easy to find.
