Taiwan, known as the island of technology, already has vast development potential. Exhibition practices or artists’ creations here are all gradually gearing towards international standards. Looking ahead to the future, after evaluating the present situation with regards to international response to moving image arts in Taiwan, there are presently the “Taiwan International Documentary Festival” organized by the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, “Taiwan International Animation Festival” organized by the Chinese Taipei Film Archive, with the macro perspectives of these exhibitions continuing to gain reputation in the international art scene. Regarding the development of images, currently Taiwan’s video artists are a constant voice and have achieved important recognition in the international arena. However, excluding some video art exhibitions which have been listed as part of some local art exhibitions, no form of special exhibition on video art has been shown. Therefore, the Chiu Tsai-Hsing Culture and Education Foundation is organizing the “2008 Taiwan International Video Art Exhibition” (Biennial) for the first time this year, to create a win-win situation by setting the standard of strong and stable support to moving image arts, as well as to promote the arts and its international image.
