About the Exhibition

As it was first organized by Yingge Ceramics Museum in 2004, Taiwan Ceramics Biennale offers curatorial exhibition or artist competition in biannual years. And since then, Yingge Ceramics Museum has featured countless superb ceramic artworks in Taiwan. Through the Biennale exhibition we have encouraged the cooperation of international ceramic society as well as expand the depth and insight of ceramics art creativities in Taiwan .
For the exhibition 2018, we have invited Taiwanese IAC member Ms. Ting-Ju Shao to be the curator. The theme for this year is “Humanistic Return: The Spiritual Origin of Ceramic Art” showcase from the original link between human and earth, and explore the possibilities between humanistic creation and time. The aim of this exhibition is to build a conversation between Asian ceramics art and culture from the perspective of Taiwan. In addition, the Biennale exhibition will highlight the cooperation with important ceramics museums in Asia.
The 2018 Taiwan Ceramics Biennale will exhibit approximately 70 to 80 artworks from more than 40 international ceramic artists. The exhibition will provide opportunities for artists not only to exhibit but experience artists-in-residency program in our museum. Besides, we will invite senior curators, Taiwan ceramics researchers and ceramic artists to share their experiences in various workshops and lectures. In hopes that this year Biennale 2018 will display a profound aspect of Taiwan culture to the ceramic artists and the people from all over the world.
