  • The Intoxicating Fragrance of Poetry in Blossom:New Taipei City Contemporary Poetry Exhibition

    Date: Now until 11/30
    Venue: National Museum of Taiwan Literature, Qidong Poetry Salon

    New Taipei City’s rich natural and cultural landscapes have inspired numerous poets to pen down their thoughts in poetic cadence. “The Intoxicating Fragrance of the Poetry in Blossom: New Taipei City Contemporary Poetry Exhibition,” a collaborative project by the National Museum of Taiwan Literature, Qidong Poetry Salon and the Cultural Affairs Department, New Taipei City, will present the creative trajectory of the New Taipei City poets to the audience.
    The Intoxicating Fragrance of Poetry in Blossom
    This exhibition focuses on poets who hold household registration in, have been long term residents of, or were born in, New Taipei City. The curators have identified the diverse styles and literary journey of several generations of poets, whose works radiate a distinct New Taipei City flavor. This exhibition cohort of poets comes from three generations, including “Muses born in fire- Before 1945”, “The baby boom that witnessed the transformation of the land -1946-60” and “Slowly into a world of Flowery Spring. 1961-80s.” In total, these three categories cover the works of 62 poets.

    The exhibition tracks the Taiwanese societal makeup of different historical stages, as well as the change of its socioeconomic structure and the relationship between various ethnic groups. During these periods, poets with varied and rich styles interact in New Taipei City, and make the City’s poetry unique and special. These poets have grown and matured with Taiwan’s developmental stratosphere, and have been through several historical stages of war, exile, the era of rapid economic growth, from oppressive political environment to an open, democratic society. The exhibition gives the audience a glimpse at New Taipei City’s poetic talents, and shows the developmental track of Taiwanese literature.

    Displays Not To Be
    Apart from the exhibition, we have created a poetry interactive wall, from which you can choose and take home with you your favorite era, poet and his or her poem.

  • “Barkley the Cat” Exhibition

    Date: 03/17-04/22
    Venue: Fuzhong 15 – New Taipei City Animation and Story Gallery

    “Barkley the Cat,” a locally-produced Taiwanese animation TV series, has taken home Taiwan’s Golden Bell Best Animation Award and Seoul International Cartoon & Animation Festival Jury’s Special Award. The series have aired in 33 countries. Audiences everywhere find Barkley’s witticism and shrewdness disarmingly delightful, and this has prompted its director, Chiu Liwei, to embark on the grand project of turning the series into a feature movie.

    Exploring the Animation Production
    The adaptation of turning “Barkley the Cat” into a cinematic production took six years, and this exhibition aims at bringing the behind-scene footage to its audience. It will showcase the black and white sketches on the storyboard created during the preliminary stage of character development, and the subsequent colored plates of the two-dimensional animation figures. As part of the filmmaking process, Chiu Liwei has taken time to conduct comprehensive research on the buildings, contemporary life and culture of Tainan. The building models, which were created as a result of the research, will also be in display. They will reconnect our audience with this historic Taiwanese city.

    Relationship between Human and Animals Revisited
    Chiu remembers that, back to his childhood, his parents once rescued a little white dog from the street. The memory generated further thoughts on animals’ need to live in - and adapt to - an anthropocentric society, in which young animals grow to comply with human rules. On the contrary, how would a human child deal with the situation if he or she were plunged into a community of animals? The thoughts led the director to create a Tainan City in which animals are member citizens. This fantasy animated movie, which took a Trans-Strait team more than two years to complete, explores the themes of love and courage, and the relationship between humans and animals.
