Dr. Yen will cover the making of the Everlasting Bloom exhibition, which runs from late October 2020 to early January 2021 at the Museum of the National Taipei University of Education (MONTUE), as well as discussing primary documents and interpretive strategies used by the curatorial team to frame the featured works. By presenting newly researched and conserved works from private collections alongside works from museum collections in Taiwan and abroad, this presentation will assess what new, richer picture of Taiwanese modern art can now be told. Featured artists include Huang Tu-shui, Cheng Cheng-po, Yen Shui-long, Saigō Kogetsu, Ishikawa Kin’ichirō, Nasu Masaki, Fujishima Takeji, and Chang Yi-hsiung.
