2025 Taoyuan International Art Award

April 1 @ 8:00 am - April 26 @ 5:00 pm

Free

The open call for submissions to the third “2025 Taoyuan International Art Award”, organized by the Taoyuan Museum of Fine Arts (TMoFA), will take place from April 1 to 26, 2024. This Award is for new works presented publicly for the first time and which have never entered government-organized competitions in Taiwan. Artists may participate as an individual or a group regardless of nationality or age. For the full prospectus, please visit the official website of Taoyuan International Art Award at (tmofa-tiaa.com).

 

The predecessor to the “Taoyuan International Art Award” was the Taoyuan Contemporary Art Award, which has been one of the most significant contemporary art competitions in Taiwan since 2001. In 2020, the Taoyuan Contemporary Art Award rebranded itself and launched the first “2021 Taoyuan International Art Award”. The Award is now to be held every two years, with an international jury. The scope of open call has also now been extended globally, thereby strengthening international exchanges and laying a solid foundation for artistic research and creation. For this edition, the Grand Prize winner receives NT$600,000, and three Honorable Mention winners each receives NT$200,000. In addition, a Sojourn Award of NT$350,000 will be offered to a Taiwanese artist for a tour abroad to inspire creations and cultivate artistic talents.

 

This year’s international jury is convened by Lijuan WANG, Acting Director of TMoFA, and the preliminary review will be conducted by Abby CHEN, Head of Contemporary Art Department at the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco; Reuben KEEHAN, Curator, Contemporary Asian Art at Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art; Sunjung KIM, Artistic Director of Art Sonje Center, Seoul, South Korea; Po-Wei WANG, Artistic Director of Digital Art Foundation, Taiwan; and Pei-Yi LU, Associate Professor at National Taipei University of Education, Taiwan.
