The “International Biennial Print Exhibit: 2016 ROC” is held in Galleries 101 and 102 of the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts (NTMoFA) from June 25 to August 28, 2016, showing 205 outstanding prints from 36 countries.
The “International Biennial Print Exhibit: ROC” has been held twice a year without a halt since its launch in 1983, and has become one of the oldest print biennials in the world.
This event has not only expanded domestic artists’ visions and offered them a chance to
compete at an international level and show their works, but has also fostered international exchange in this field.
Director of the National Museum of Fine Arts, Hsiao Tsung-huang, noted that “this biennial enables the people of Taiwan to appreciate remarkable prints made by global artists and to observe the world’s printmaking trends,” adding that “By looking at the nationality of the award winning artists, we can tell that their artworks were chosen not only fairly, but also openly and carefully. ” [FULL STORY]
