NTMoFA has organized several young art exhibitions based on the museum’s collection in the recent years, continuing to explore the creative styles and outlooks demonstrated by the young generation. In addition to introducing to the public artworks by young artists, a creative context based on young art is also being observed, constructed, and presented. Dreams‧Habitations - NTMoFA Young Artist Collection Exhibition presented this year includes 77 artworks selected from the museum’s collection of 15,000 artworks, which was narrowed down to 888 artworks by artists born after the year 1970 (45 years old or younger). These artworks by young artists have made the museum’s collection more diverse, and they have, furthermore, become an important databank for the studies of Taiwanese artists born after 1970. Although only selected artworks from the collection can be showcased in each exhibition, however, the contemporary social atmosphere in Taiwan is still candidly presented each time, with an approach of sampling used to highlight unique notable features observed in young art. The exhibition, Dreams‧Habitations - NTMoFA Young Artist Collection Exhibition, explores the reactions by today’s youths towards the Self, the contemporary life, and the future world, and the states of adrift and unrest they are encountering as they go on a pursuit for a better future. The exhibition is divided into three subcategories of Lost and Adrift – Necessary Reorganization of Inner Order and Private Space, Reality and Removed from Reality – Abnormal Everyday Environment, and Future Allegory – Searching for the Unknown Habitat, presenting the intricate ties between young art with time and environmental changes. Furthermore, demands, visions, or anticipations that the youths hold for a sense of stability are also observed from the museum’s collection, and this is why the framework of this exhibition departs from these youths’ personal/inner sense of “home”, extending to form connections and communications with society and nature, with fantasies and depictions created for the unknown future. It is anticipated for the audience to join these young artists through their artworks on view in this exhibition to collectively go on a journey, resonating with the contemporary ambiance projected by these artworks and to experience the inner energy and movements of these young artists.
