「Discovering Taiwan─Re-visiting the Age of Natural History and Naturalists of Taiwan」

“Discovering Taiwan” has two units. Unit One focuses on the research tradition of the naturalists in the beginning of the 20th century. During on-site field studies, the museum’s researchers recorded their research findings and brought back specimens and new knowledge that contributed to the museum’s collections. Unit Two introduces how specimens became cherished evidence of natural history research through organization, identification, and classification. They are an important source for scientific research. Specimens represent different species. Different specimens form a miniature version of our big nature, illustrating the evolutionary history of different species in nature. “Taiwan’s New Scopes” introduces the important naturalists and their findings in the 100- year history of the National Taiwan Museum. These naturalists worked hard to unveil the secrets of Taiwan’s nature. Thanks to them, we can appreciate the beauty of Formosa through different lenses. “The Past is the Future” means that the museum does not only bring visitors to the past, but they also lead us to reflect on the current and envision the future. People often think that museum collections are evidence of history being frozen in time. The appearance of the collections may stay constant. But people’s opinions about the collections change constantly. Therefore, they may have different meanings and values in different times. In the museum, the past is the future. This is why people never lose their interest in museums.

Taichung Museum Of Fiber Arts

Weaving is a craft shared by all cultures in the world; it can be specifically divided into knotting, tying, weaving, dyeing, and embroidery. It provides our everyday needs, and can add colors in our lives with its creative designs. Founded in 1990, the Weaving Arts Museum, a division of Taichung County Cultural Center, originally featured natural rush hats and mats made in Tachia and traditional Atayal weaving, where the collection has expanded to 869 pieces of weaving over the years. As a small-sized local cultural center that connects domestic weaving talents, it has published book series, held exhibitions, conducted exchanges with other museums and global partners, and put in efforts in talent training. From 2015 onward, the Cultural Affairs Bureau of Taichung City Government started to formulate a plan that promotes the Weaving Arts Museum to become Taichung’s first public municipal museum, as a way to respond to the promulgation of the Museum Act and pursue sustainable development. The missions of MOFiA can be recapitulated in three dimensions: fiber, fashion, and green craft, which also point to the future direction of this museum. The aims of this museum are to incorporate Central Taiwan’s natural and human resources, based upon the richly diversified research results, thus progressing toward a professional organization that boasts lifestyle, culture, fashion, design, and eco-friendly ideas. With its integration of exchange platforms of fiber arts industries domestically and internationally, it is expected to become a new landmark of the cultural developments in Taichung City in the near future.
