Taoyuan International Art Award

Established in 2021 by the Taoyuan Museum of Fine Arts, the Taoyuan International Art Award (TIAA) stands as a biennial exhibition initiative dedicated to cultivating international art networks and expanding global perspectives. Its core mission is to promote cultural diversity in contemporary art worldwide and discover artistic propositions that embody modern viewpoints. Finalists selected for the award will receive support from the museum to realize their exhibition plans. Now entering its third edition, the award strives to widen the scope of artistic expressions and cultural horizons.

The TIAA is also notable for its distinguished international jury panel, whose past members include Christine Macel, Chief Curator of the 57th Venice Biennale; Nanjo Fumio, former Director of the Mori Art Museum; independent curator Hou Hanru; Cosmin Costinas, curator of the Sydney Biennale, as well as prominent local art critics, curators, and scholars like Kao Chien-Hui, Chia Chi Jason Wang, Takamori Nobuo, and Roan Ching-Yueh.

The TIAA aspires to transcend international borders within the realm of contemporary art. With the vision of a city art museum in the 21st Century, the Taoyuan Museum of Fine Arts aims to serve as a dynamic platform extending the natures and frontiers of art, and foster a surge of creative energy. It endeavors to become a central hub for reflections on issues of a globalized world.

The main building of Taoyuan Museum of Fine Arts in Qingpu is expected to be completed at the end of 2026. Having operated for more than five years, the museum continues to engage the public through a variety of innovative guerrilla projects of exhibitions and education throughout the city.

With A Two-Round Selection Process, Taoyuan International Art Award Fosters International Dialogues.

The Taoyuan International Art Award employs a two-round selection process. The Preliminary Review comprises an online selection. Artists selected in the Preliminary Review will actualize their exhibits and participate in the exhibition in Taiwan. The Final Review involves an on-site review by the jury, with finalists defending their works in person. The selected entries will be exhibited on the first floor of the Taoyuan Arts Center from March to April 2025.

The Art Award will dispense:

  • Grand Prize *1: A prize of NT$600,000 (~17,500 EUR), one trophy, one award certificate, and five albums.
  • Honourable Mention *3: A prize of NT$200,000 (~5850 EUR), one trophy, one award certificate, and five albums.
  • Sojourn Award *1: A subsidy of NT$350,000 (~10,250 EUR) for a tour abroad is offered to a Taiwanese participant, one trophy, one award certificate, and three albums.
  • Selected Award: One award certificate and three albums.

TMoFA will cover the expenses of basic build-up (up to NT$80,000), return transportation, and insurance of exhibited works as well as the transportation of the participating artists selected by the jury after the preliminary review. For foreign artists or those having lived abroad for over six months, the travel subsidy is up to NT$60,000 (~1750 EUR) to cover the roundtrip ticket of coach (economy class) to and from Taoyuan. Only one representative from a group is eligible for the transportation subsidy.
