2014 Taichung City Da Dun Fine Arts Exchange Exhibition

15 July 2014 - 31 August 2014, Main Galleries. Donations appreciated.

Taichung is Taiwan’s second largest city after the capital, Taipei. Originally known as Da Dun, Taichung now has a population of over 2.6 million. With its rich cultural diversity, and ancient heritage, Taichung has become renowned as a city of culture. Taichung has an active sister-city relationship with the city of Auckland.

The Da Dun Fine Arts Exhibition was founded as an art competition for local artists in 1996. It quickly grew to become an international art competition attracting up to 2000 entries per year. Eleven categories are represented, including crafts, sculpture, digital arts, photography, printmaking, water colour painting, oil painting, seal engraving, calligraphy, glue colour painting, and ink wash painting.

Some of the categories of art in the Da Dun exhibition may be unfamiliar, but intriguing, to New Zealand art audiences. For example the category of ‘glue colour’ painting is an ancient Chinese tradition which became popular in Japan in the 20th century, and has since enjoyed resurgence in Taiwan. In this painting method artists combine a variety of animal, vegetable, and mineral-based pigments with a glue binder made of fish or animal protein, to create immaculate paintings on silk, which can last for hundreds of years without fading.

The Cultural Affairs Bureau of Taichung City has organised a touring exhibition of winning works from the 18-year history of the Da Dun Fine Arts Exhibition, featuring a selection of the most spectacular and intriguing works from this long-running international art event. The Pah Homestead, TSB Bank Wallace Arts Centre is proud to be the venue for the Da Dun Fine Arts Exhibition Cultural Exchange Exhibition in 2014.
