2nd Call for Submissions: Transformation & Rebirth — Exterior Renovation Project of Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts
Register/Submit Deadline: Tuesday, Jul 21, 2020
It is expected to make KMFA a museum that can keep up with the times in terms of both hardware and software, becoming a real international exhibition venue. Different from the planning concept of traditional art museums, the 21st-century art museums emphasize publicity and focus on "people." The museum is no longer just a sacred temple but integrates into daily life. It is a generator of urban creativity and an international platform. From the pure aesthetic to a serial compound, it combines the land texture and the local characteristics, developing a unique large art museum park. The new space will be more open, accessible, and public.
