展覽簡介 Exhibition Introduction當代的概念是流動的，不斷變化的瞬間存在。當代藝術嘗試以新的時代觀點來探索、洞悉當下的藝術心靈。「台灣當代藝術」含括了近二十年來以台灣為核心基地，或活躍或潛伏或遊走其中的多元藝術樣貌。
展覽分為兩個子題，分別為《e樂園》（e-Paradise）與《再現童年》（Childhood Revisited）。在《e樂園》這個子題裡，呈現的是各種透過電子數位處理後的物質現實五官感受，及游離於真假之間的虛擬情境。在物質文明的急速發展下蘊藏著寓言式的精神啟示。《e樂園》投射出的是一個 electronic 電子的、ecological生態的、educational教育的、entertaining休閒的，新時代休閒學習樂園。
The concept of modernity is constantly changing, even as it exists in the present moment. From perspectives of the new century, contemporary art attempts to explore the spirit of art in modern society. The meaning of Taiwanese contemporary art includes various artistic styles and modes in which some artists choose Taiwan as their base to create artwork, and others prefer to take a position with some distance vis-à-vis Taiwan.
Digital technology and the Internet have already become a pervading value of the 21st century. With its power that touches all aspects of our world, technology is gradually changing human beings’ living environment as well as the way they think. At the same time, the material world is entering into a new age where the characteristics of globalization and localization both present themselves in the same spaces. In a modern society where the importance of speed and results cannot be overemphasized, can we still find traces of the past beneath the surface of optimism and wealth? What would happen if the human spirit were to fall behind the constant development of these sensational, superficial images? Would the human spirit be emptied out because of its inability to keep up with material change?
With these questions in mind, the main goal of this exhibition is to reflect the characteristics of our times as well as to expose the potential for truth beneath the surfaces that surround us. In addition, MOCA is hoping to fulfill its mission to encourage people in the community to understand what contemporary art is about, and to help them integrate art into their life.
Labyrinth of Pleasure is composed of two complimentary themes: e-Paradise and Childhood Revisited.
e-Paradise presents varieties of contemporary materials, sensory experiences, and virtual worlds created by wildly rapid developments in material culture. At the same time, the exhibition is also imbued with the spirit of the fairytale for audiences to contemplate. In sum, e-Paradise projects a learning paradise with an entertaining atmosphere. This paradise is surrounded by electronic, ecological, educational, and entertaining joy.
In Childhood Revisited, participating artists take their childhood fantasies, memories, experiences, and dreams as the central themes of their work. This type of creation is an important part of developments in Taiwanese contemporary art during the last few years. Most artists, who use their childhood as materials for creation, were born during the 1960s and 1970s. These artists retrace individual childhood memories, experiences, and flights of fancy to confront, reflect on, express, and (re)present the self through their chosen artistic forms.
歡樂迷宮 X 1
台北當代藝術館是台灣第一座以當代藝術為導向的藝術專門機構，本館館舍原為日據時代的建成小學校， 1945 ~ 1993 年間轉為台北市政府辦公廳舍。市府於 1994 年遷往信義計畫區新廈後，基於古蹟再利用之政策，於 2001 年 5 月將市府舊廳舍轉化為「台北當代藝術館」及建成國中之用，不僅是台灣第一座由古蹟轉型為美術館的成功案例，也是全台唯一與校園共構的藝文展館。
Opened in May 2001, the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA Taipei) is the first museum in Taiwan devoted entirely to contemporary art practice. Our mission is to provide access to contemporary art from Taiwan and around the world to an increasingly globally-oriented, technologically-savvy audience.
The building which houses the museum is a designated Municipal Historical Relic. Built in the late 1920s, this Japanese colonial-style red brick structure served as an elementary school for two decades before a fifty-year stint as the site of the Taipei City Hall.
MOCA Taipei exemplifies a coming together of contemporary art, historical architecture, and high technology – resulting from the joint efforts of the Taipei City Government, the local community, artists, and corporate supporters.
As the world moves toward globalization, digitalization and technologically advancement – Contemporary Art provides an arena for artistic exchange and for the expression of cultural identity. From its inception, the museum has always recognized as main task to transcend the boundary that exist between art and the community at-large, constantly looking for new ways where art and the community interact, and striving to bring art beyond the confines of the museum walls and into the everyday lives of the community. MOCA Taipei will continue to move in this direction in the future. By stimulating inter-disciplinary creativity through multifarious and diverse artistic exhibition and performances, we hope to bring art into our community, and ultimately, to catalyze a spirit of innovation in the city of Taipei.
