視盟以台灣最大的藝術工作者協會的資源及平台出發，秉持自由、多元、開放的藝術平權初衷，自 2002 年起創辦台灣唯一以藝術創作者為核心的「台灣藝術家博覽會」，2016 年更名為「台灣當代一年展」，一路以來不斷挑戰自我、嘗試不同的展出內容與形式，曾於文化創意園區、歷史街區、百貨商城、臺北花博公園爭豔館盛大展出，或是2016-2018 年與「混種現場」、「白晝之夜」等藝術季連袂結合等等，每年致力為創作者提供與廣大藝術愛好者、專業社群、國際網絡連結的機會。
自 2002 年起，一年展與台灣視覺藝術界一起見證了全球性的劇變──過去的二十年，網際網路根本性影響我們的生活與當代藝術的多元演化 ; 過去的短短二年，病毒對我們而言，除了身體上的衝擊，也讓我們更清楚藝術的力量，不在於實體或虛擬，而在於重新省視內在本質，在混亂的時代中重整步伐，更明白心之所向，與變動的未來，共感共生。
About TAIWAN ANNUAL
As the largest art workers’ aggregate in Taiwan, Association of the Visual Arts in Taiwan (AVAT) upholds the faith of freedom, diversification, and open-minded equal rights since 1999.
The Artist Fair Taiwan (former TAIWAN ANNUAL) was organized in 2002 and renamed in 2016, which has been challenging itself, trying different exhibition contents and forms every year. It has been exhibited in cultural and creative parks, historical districts, department stores, and Taipei Expo Park. In 2016-2018, it was once combined with art festivals such as “On Site” and “Nuit Blanche”. Every year, we are committed to providing creators with opportunities to connect with art lovers, professional communities, and international networks.
As an annual exhibition focuses on equal rights, the Focal Annual section has open-called for many years without restrictions on identity and media, the Foster Annual section supports curatorials, and the Jury Prize promotes future development opportunities for creators , The Public Art Area and the Taiwan Contemporary Art Archives (TCAA) Area invite everyone to think about the development of life and art. In addition, we hold various activities and talks via international networks that the alternative, experimental or alternative art spaces are connected to perform together.
Since 2002, TAIWAN ANNUAL has experienced drastic social evolution with everyone. In the past two decades, the Internet has comprehensively affected our lives and the diversified development of contemporary art. In the past two years, the virus has changed our lives. The most important part is that it made us realize more about the power of art is not depending on the physical or virtual existence, but is the inner essence re-examining, and the deeper understanding of the direction of the heart in the chaotic era, which equip us with stronger mutual sensibility of an uncertain future.
In the past twenty years, the communication between the past and the future, the charm of art and the interaction between people have only increased.
TAIWAN ANNUAL sincerely invites you to join the journey of contemporary visual art development in Taiwan for the next 20 years!
