Artistic residency has develop into broadly followed in Western nations whereas only in the near past having develop into renowned and well-supported inside of Taiwan. This ebook explores the demanding situations that this kind of paintings perform confronted in modern Taiwan from the revocation of Martial legislations in 1987 to the 2000s—arguably essentially the most fascinating classes within the sociocultural historical past of the island. Case reviews express what's at stake politically, traditionally, and socially in artists’ endeavours to offer form to a feeling of Taiwanese identity.

Despite the superiority of artists engaged in social matters in today’s global and the indisputable contributions of inventive residency to modern paintings perform, little literature or scholarly examine has been performed at the functional, conceptual, and ideological elements of artist residency. quite often, it really is perceived in very slim phrases, overlooking particular or hidden problems with localism, nationalism and globalization. If inventive place of abode did certainly emerge from the unconventional activities of the Nineteen Sixties and 70s within the Western world—and in particular Britain—then this publication argues that the modern sociocultural context of Taiwan demands redefined, culturally-specific types of residency.

The precarious geo-political scenario of Taiwan has made problems with cultural identity—tackled by way of artists and successive governments alike—very delicate. a brand new style of creative place of dwelling in Taiwan could suggest that artists concerned from no matter what cultural historical past function as engaging interpreters; their roles wouldn't be constrained to mirroring tradition and society. those artists-in-residence may give a contribution to cultural awakening by way of supplying methods of negotiating creatively with otherness, and this for the sake of a higher social existence and shared identification.
