"Taiwan Contemporary Art Archive (TCAA)"- a cloud database is established by "The Association of the Visual Art in Taiwan (AVAT)". The preparation of TCAA began in July 2013 and it inaugurated in Feb 19, 2014. TCAA is a free online platform for the public with sections covering the growing genres of Taiwan’s contemporary art. It is an integral database connecting local artists to the international art society as well as the academic world. From researchers to curators, any user of TCAA will be informed with the development of Taiwan’s contemporary art.
The Index of the database is in accordance with the commonly accepted art categories, including performance art, video art, new media art, installation art, photographic art, painting art, sculptural art, and curators/art critics. The keywords of each section help outline and connect artists, their works and exhibitions, art events, art discourse among other issues.
The Archive is a lasting long-term project, it kicked off when the objectives of the early phase have been achieved and will continue to expand its content. Users are provided with the most comprehensive and updated materials for their academic or curatorial work.
