Overlooking the Kuandu Plain and constructed alongside the mountain slope, the KdMoFA is the first fine arts museum located within a university campus in Taiwan. A contemporary art piece with unique architectural design, the four-storey museum --- with two basement levels comprising nine exhibition galleries --- offers a quality exterior and interior exhibition space of 720 ‘ping’(2376 sq m). Breaking out of traditional proportional constraints, the design of the museum has adopted an incongruent style to create a sense of movement imbued with interesting possibilities.
The residency is generously supported with an economy class return ticket to Taipei and a stipend. All freight costs and insurance are the responsibility of the artist. This exchange will support applications to other funding and grant bodies.
Please note that freight costs, other transport expenses and insurance are not provided. Applicants are advised to be aware of the financial responsibilities that will not be covered by the residency agreement and stipend. It is the responsibility of the applicant to apply for other forms of funding or grants, if required, for additional costs such as travel, insurance, and materials. Please be aware of the deadlines, requirements, and anticipated distribution for those grants. Please note that this exchange will support applications to other funding and grant bodies.
