DREAMIN' MoNTUE

About Dreamin’ MoNTUE Since 2015, MoNTUE has launched “Dreamin’ MoNTUE,” a biennial global open call program that supports new-generation artists with professional resource and assistance of an art museum. The program transforms the museum into an experimental stage for artists and dissolves the boundaries between “people,” “museum space” and “artistic creation” with the objective of facilitating their integration and dialogue while exploring the “unknownness” of prismatic interdisciplinary practices. In 2017, the first edition of Dreamin’ MoNTUE presented The Serene Gallery by Yeh Ming-Hwa and Masingkiay by Fangas Nayaw. Both exhibitions introduced performing arts into the museum space and blurred the distinctions between the viewing habit of visual arts and that of performing arts to explore new forms of museum exhibitions with their interdisciplinary curatorial projects. The 2019 Dreamin’ MoNTUE showcased This is a Story from the Laundromat by Chia Chien-Ju, which amalgamated dance, sculpture, video and live installation to challenge the possibility of museum exhibitions. The 2021 Dreamin’ MoNTUE has taken place in the midst of the pandemic that impacted the globe. Chang Ting-Tong, however, has made use of this opportunity to initiate an online exhibition project, Soap, to not only respond to the reality of museums being forced to shut down and transform as well as the situation of excessive and inundating information, but also to re-investigate the future trends of exhibitions as the real and the virtual boundaries are now gradually disappearing. Dreamin’ MoNTUE hopes to establish a platform of international arts and cultural exchange through the participation of emerging artists and curators from Taiwan and abroad while injecting more innovative energy into the experimentation and creation of interdisciplinary art.
