TTIA’s arrival concourses are full of artistic atmosphere in the afternoon of 22 October. Kuang-shih Yeh, Minister of MOTC, Ying-tai Lung, Minister of Culture, Tsai-lang Huang, Director of National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, and artists including Yi-shiang Yang, Min-tse Chen, and Hung-da Hsieh, gathered in A9 boarding gate of T1 to launch the ribbon cutting ceremony of ‘Art Bank Airport Exhibition’.

The ‘Art bank’ project is managed by the Ministry of Culture, which commissions National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts to collect works of contemporary artists in Taiwan, and then to lease them to government offices or private enterprises. Via the approach of exhibition rotation, artists’ works can be displayed in front of different audiences in various areas. This project has a budget of NTD 35 million in 2013, and 52 pieces of the total purchased works are exhibited in TTIA, the national façade, for global passengers to experience the creativity of Taiwanese artists. Exhibitions of other pieces in airports managed by CAA, including Taipei Songshan Airport, Taichung Airport, Kaohsiung International Airport, began on the same day.

‘Meeting in Formosa’ is the exhibition theme set by the art bank to describe airport as a place that gathers persons, and the subtopic for TTIA is ‘scenery and travel’, which tries to transform impressions and perceptions of passengers towards hometown or foreign land into specific feelings. Take Min-tse Chen’s oil painting, ‘Shuanglianpi 1997’, for example, it came from his impression of Shuanglianpi in Yuanshan, Yilan County after he joined the Wilderness Society and visited there for the first time.

Three topics, ‘natural scenery’, ‘life situation, and ‘heart map’ categorize the displayed works, expressed via ways of oil painting, acrylic, watercolor, ink, prints, photography, and mixed media. From now on until the end of the year, the arrival concourses in T1 zone A and B prepare for arrival passengers an artistic feast.
