The Pulima Art Festival is the most prestigious indigenous contemporary art festival in Taiwan, and has embodied the indigenous cultural spirit and progress of contemporary art.
In 2018, the festival adopts “Micawor” as the theme and aims to turn over fertile soil of the indigenous culture and arts through visual arts, performing arts, films, seminars, talks and workshops to connect international indigenous art communities and create brimming vitality for the future indigenous society.
Alongside the programs from Taiwan, it also marks the first time that the festival has an international indigenous focus. New Zealand artist Lisa Reihana ((Ngāpuhi, Ngāti Hine, Ngāi Tū) is showing "in Pursuit of Venus [infected] as part of the festival at MOCA Taipei. Pulima Art Festival is not only building collaborative relationships with New Zealand and Australian indigenous artists, but will also co-produce and present the 'Yirramboi First Nations Arts Festival' as a festival within a festival at the Pulima Art Festival.
Starting from November 3, a series of exhibitions, music/theatre/dance programs, workshops and art talks await the audience. New talent will be showcased and cross-national exchanges will be expected as well. You are invited to this energetic, creative and festive Pulima journey in Taipei. Hope you enjoy it.
