Art has been a fundamental essence of Taichung for an extensive period of time. With the inauguration of the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts in 1988, an environment to appreciate a diverse array of art has since been opened to the general public. Other cultural and art activities have also been actively taking place in the city, with large areas of natural green zones created through fantastic urban planning which also works well with Taichung’s pleasant weather. Cultural commercial areas are interlaced with luscious trees and other vegetation, blending together areas that the city’s residents can enjoy in their everyday lives, as Taichung continues to be selected on several occasions as the most livable city in Taiwan.

The 7th ART TAICHUNG 2019 will take place this year from July 19th to 21st at the Millennium Hotel, Taichung. The overarching theme of this year is Perceptual Dimensions: Sculptures in the City, which will focus on how to elevate a city’s aesthetic sense and how to redefine a city’s ethos and ideology. By expanding the art collector demographic and invigorating the art market, Core Design Gallery aims to create a distinctive visual aesthetic that brings the different genre and style of best selected Malaysian contemporary art to Art Taichung for the first time.
