Located in an old school building built around the turn of the 20th century, the Museum of Contemporary Art Taipei features the latest and greatest when it comes to, contemporary art (當代藝術 / dang dai yi shu).

As a contemporary art lover myself, I was excited to experience more of what Taiwanese culture perceives as modern art.

The art itself isn’t too far off from what one might find state-side, although it does appear as though the scale of these pieces is a lot smaller.

No huge metallic balloon dogs here, no. Most all of the pieces looked like they could be made in a smaller-sized Taiwanese apartment.


Here’s a fixture in the lobby area of the museum.

They were also doing an exhibit that featured artwork from kids using bath materials.

I enjoyed my time checking out the exhibits at MOCA Taipei. Although it wasn’t as big as many of the other MOCA’s I’ve been to, it definitely left me with a better understanding of Taiwanese modern art. I would recommend visiting for anyone in the Datong District looking for something artsy to do.
