Hong-gah Museum presents Beitou Local Series Collecting Project annually for three years already. The project probes with different theme each year, inviting artists of different media to Beitou to envisage on various aspects of Beitou, including the geography, history, natural environment, humanity and society. Local communities across ages, including school children, youth, and senior citizens are invited to participate in the project. The results of the collaborative researches and creations are exhibited or performed in the museum. The content clings to local texture with diversified forms across disciplines. Through years of accumulation, the means to learning about a locality via art practices are slowly coming into being. This year, themed with “body”, exhibitions and performances, dynamic and static alike, in various forms such as dancing, drama, and performance art are introduced. Departing from Beitou, we aim to present artworks with features of local life that can be shared with all.
