Ming-Jiun Tsai was born in Kaohsiung, Taiwan in 1981, and Nantou is her hometown. She has been a nomad moving between different countries, cities and houses since age sixteen. As an observer, her long-term relationship with art – studying and working in the field of art since junior high school – stimulates her interests in the relationship between art, public and society. As an independent curator and artist, Ming-Jiun Tsai’s projects are often site and context specific involving working closely with different collaborators and producing commissions. Recently, her care of environment, nature and biological issues leads her project into environment without walls.
Ming-Jiun Tsai is currently a full-time assistant professor in short-term contract in Tunghai University Department of Fine Arts. Her curatorial projects in recent three years include ‘2019 Madou Sugar Industry Art Triennial’, ‘Oasis’, ‘Collective Negative Space Village – Ministry of Culture: Taiwan Air Force Innovation Base Experimental Architecture Project’, ‘Knead and Gain – HOU Chun MingInterview project’ and ‘Post-Ecolonialism Project – Practice Rooted in Communities’.
