- There are two important projects that serve as significant channels for contemporary art development and venues for international communication: the Taipei Biennial and the Venice Biennial, Taipei Pavilion. Neither project is large, yet each is flexible, energetic, and recognized by the
international art press. The biennials play a positive role in promoting Taiwan's cultural diplomacy. They also gain international exposure for artists. leading to the positive reception of their works. They have received invitations to various other international art expos and biennials, and sold
their works to private collectors and museums. The international recognition of their achievements have inspired greater artistic creativity, broadened the vision of local curators, and revived up the engine of the art market. These factors have all had a great influence upon the prosperity of the artistic environment in Taiwan.
