台灣當代藝術大獎「台新藝術獎」,5月25日於台新金控大樓舉辦頒獎典禮,揭曉頒布「第17屆台新藝術獎」三大獎得主,包括「年度大獎」一百五十萬元獎金、「視覺」及「表演」藝術獎各得一百萬元獎金。 

頒獎典禮由台新銀行文化藝術基金會董事長鄭家鐘先生開場致詞,鄭董事長表示對藝術家及基金會來說,獎項都不會是終點,而是透過獎項的選擇、推薦的過程,讓近在我們周邊發生的當代作品,可以獲得更積極而多層次的關注,並擴及影響力!

「台新藝術獎」九位提名觀察人從去年超過百件被提名展演作品中,選出15組年度入圍作品。再由國內外專業人士組成國際決選團決定三大獎得主。今年決選委員為:耿一偉、陳泰松、于善祿、孫松榮四位國內代表,以及來自澳洲及香港三位國際代表,包括:澳洲OzAsia藝術節總監約瑟夫.米契爾(Joseph Mitchell)、昆士蘭現代美術館當代亞洲藝術策展人魯本‧基漢(Reuben Keehan),以及香港演藝學院舞蹈學院院長陳頌瑛(Anna CY Chan)。

第一個揭曉頒布的「視覺藝術獎」,由蘇匯宇在「2018台灣美術雙年展」發表的新作《唐朝綺麗男(邱剛健,1985)》獲獎。蘇匯宇以補拍之名,複訪台灣電影,重拍原作中稍縱即逝的細節與遺落在劇本的結局,評審團認為:

「蘇匯宇以補拍之名,重新考掘邱剛健的電影原作《唐朝綺麗男》鏡頭與敘事細節,誘發歷史與當代之間的嶄新意義。此作透過屏風樣式的四頻道錄像裝置與高度風格化的影音語言,還魂此段被遺忘的台灣電影史。《唐朝綺麗男(邱剛健,1985)》的另一重要成就,在於回望戒嚴時期涉及情色與欲望的箝制,回應了解放情欲、身體與性別的台灣當代社會,展現出超越性的藝術視域。」

接續揭曉「表演藝術獎」,由編舞家周書毅的獨立創作《Break&Break!無用之地》周書毅身體錄像展」獲獎。周書毅三年來行跡台灣及不同國家,用影像記錄身體與土地的對話,最後在台北「空場」一個曾是廢棄紡織廠的頂樓天台,完成個人階段性的錄像展演。評選團認為:

「《Break&Break!無用之地》周書毅身體錄像展極具規模與野心,儘管是私密的個人作品,卻探索東亞城市及工業快速發展的衝擊。本作有深沉的自我反思,與其探索主題高度相關,超越地域的限制。周書毅透過他的身/影回應不同的都市變遷,也傳達個人生命歷程,為其實踐揭示新方向。多頻道投影為這齣精彩的舞作提供動態的背景與對話關係。這個作品在特定場域首演,它與全球都市化體驗密切相關,打破展演空間限制,不論在任何城市演出,皆能突顯對於人造環境的省思。」

今年「年度大獎」由布拉瑞揚舞團文化基金會2018年度製作《路吶LUNA獲得桂冠!舞團繼去年《無,或就以沈醉為名》獲得年度「表演藝術獎」後,今年更突破獎項分類,獲評審一致肯定,成為藝術獎自2014年轉型頒布不分類的最高額獎項「年度大獎」以來,首度由表演藝術作品獲此殊榮,同時也是台新藝術獎開辦以來首度「連續獲獎」團隊!評選團盛讚此作品為「令人激賞的一座里程碑!」:

「在這個超速變化、巨量訊息的年代,《路吶LUNA》沉潛扎實的省思與探問,觸動人心的身體舞動,充分展現力與美的文化溯源能量。這部作品彰顯了自我與他者相互尊重、協商的可能性,歷經跨部族的文化學習與沉澱淬鍊,「布拉瑞揚舞團」從原住民的身體性與部落儀式尋找當代的語法與姿態,重新取樣,以「人」的存在角度出發,豐富了當代舞蹈的內涵。」

The 17th Taishin Arts Award Laureates Announced

Bulareyaung Dance and Cultural Foundation Is Awarded the Annual Grand Prize, Making a New Record in the Award’s History

Taiwan’s prestigious contemporary arts award, the Taishin Arts Award, announced the laureates and presented the award ceremony at Taishin Tower on May 25. The laureates of three awards were selected from 15 finalists, and were respectively awarded to:


The Visual Arts Award: SU Hui-Yu, The Glamorous Boys of Tang (1985, Chui Kang-Chien) (NT$ 1 million monetary award)
The Performing Arts Award: CHOU Shu-Yi, Break & Break! Dance Video Exhibition (NT$ 1 million monetary award)
The Annual Grand Prize: Bulareyaung Dance and Cultural Foundation, LUNA (NT$ 1.5 million monetary award)


The ceremony commenced with the remarks of the chairman of the Taishin Bank Foundation for Arts and Culture, Mr. Simon CHENG, who states that the honor of the Award never represents an end for all the artists and the Foundation; instead, through the selection and recommendation of the Award, contemporary arts works that have been happening around us can be given more active and multifaceted attention to expand their influence!

Taishin Arts Award has been engaging all fields in dialogues with the launching of its website, ARTalks. Nine nominators selected 15 finalists from more than one hundred nominated works from last year. For the final selection, jurors from Taiwan and abroad formed an international final selection committee to select the laureates. This year’s final selection jurors included four representatives from Taiwan, including GENG Yi-Wei, CHEN Tai-Song, YU Shan-Lu and SING Song-Yong, and the three international representatives were Joseph Mitchell, Artistic Director for OzAsia Festival; Reuben Keehan, Curator of Contemporary Asian Art at Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art, Queensland, Australia; and Anna CY CHAN, Dean of the School of Dance of The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts. After three days of intensive discussions and meetings, the final selection committee selected the laureates of the three awards, including the Annual Grand Prize, with a 1.5 million monetary prize, as well as the Visual Arts Award and the Performing Arts Award, each with a 1 million monetary prize.

First to be announced in the ceremony was the Visual Arts Award, which was awarded to The Glamorous Boys of Tang (1985, Chui Kang-Chien), a new work that artist SU Hui-Yu published in the 2018 Taiwan Biennial. With the approach of re-shooting, Su’s four-channel video installation presented in the form of a screen revisited CHUI Kang-Chien’s original movie, The Glamorous Boys of Tang, and introduced fresh meanings stemming from the gaps between the historical and the contemporary. The jury committee made the following comment regarding his work, “A significant achievement of The Glamorous Boys of Tang (1985, Chui Kang-Chien) is to look back at the suffocating control over eroticism and desire during the martial law ruling period. The artwork responds to a sense of urgency about the liberation of human desire, body, and gender in Taiwan, while presenting a transcendent artistic vision.

The Performing Arts Award was the second to be announced, which was awarded to choreographer CHOU Shu-Yi’s independent production, Break & Break! Dance Video Exhibition. For over three years, Chou visited numerous corners in Taiwan and different countries, documenting his physical dialogues with the land with videos. He eventually presented a video exhibition conclusive of this journey in recent years at Polymer in Taipei, on the rooftop of the art space that used to be a disused textile factory. The jury committee made the following comment regarding his work, “The work conveys the artist’s personal journey as he interprets his body’s response to different urban environments, uncovering new directions in his own practice. These sites and the artist’s responses to them are depicted in a multi-channel projection that provides a dynamic backdrop and a point of dialogue for a compelling dance performance. While the work premiered at a specific site, its relevance to the global experience of urbanisation suggests that it can be staged elsewhere with the use of non-traditional sites that emphasise the centrality of the built environment to the artist’s project.”

This year’s Annual Grand Prize was awarded to LUNA, a 2018 production by Bulareyaung Dance and Cultural Foundation. The dance company brought home last year’s Performing Arts Award with its work, Stay That Way. This year, it surpassed award categorization and won the jurors’ unanimous recognition to become the first laureate to be awarded the Annual Grand Prize – the highest honor as well as a non-distinguishing prize in the Taishin Arts Award – with a performing arts work since the Award’s transformation in 2014. Meanwhile, the dance company is also the first consecutive laureate since the establishment of the Award. The jury committee made the following comment regarding the work, “LUNA is a milestone production! In an era of accelerating change and information explosion, this piece expresses inner calmness and assurance embodied in impactful physical movements. This piece demonstrates mutual respect between different communities as well as the possibilities of negotiation. After the refinement of learning from the culture of a different tribe, the choreographer applies a contemporary vocabulary and masculine posture through the company dancers to create a unique bodily expression. Bulareyaung Pagarlava’s dance is grounded in the perspective of human existence and enriches the culture of Taiwan.”

Theater director, LEE Ming-Chen, served as the chief organizer of this year’s ceremony, which was hosted by emerging magician Sean CHOU and theater performer SONG Meng-Xuan. The Muddy Basin Ramblers, nicknamed the most charismatic foreign musical band in Taiwan, performed in the ceremony, transporting the audience immersed in a nervous atmosphere back to the era of swing music with its performance of the 1930 Taiwanese popular song “The Dance Age” and other songs. The Award ceremony was also livestreamed online. For further information about the nominees, finalists and laureates, please visit the 17th Taishin Arts Award website.
