Founded in Taipei in 2010, Mind Set Art Center (MSAC) is a contemporary art platform that exhibits and promotes artworks by Taiwanese, Asian and international artists. It is dedicated to creative programs and collaborative projects with curators from different regions for the aim of cultural exchange. MSAC has exhibited the works of Taiwanese artists in Beijing, Hong Kong, and Manila. Since 2017, the gallery has successfully launched large-scale exhibits at Art Basel in Hong Kong that have garnered global acclaim. These include “A 100km Walk” by SHI Jin-Hua, “The Play of a Taiwan Ranger” by LEE Ming-tse, and “Liminal Air Space-Time” by Shinji OHMAKI. MSAC has also been working with the Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts since 2019 to widen representation of its artists in the academia. The collaboration has led to milestone exhibitions, including “Infinitrace by Rao FU”, “Rustle of Existence” by Shinji OHMAKI and “Tide Table” by Marina Cruz.
MSAC currently works with more than 30 artists around the world and has organized solo exhibits for Taiwanese artists from different generations, such as LEE Ming-tse, SHI Jin-Hua, Juin SHIEH, TANG Jo-Hung, JHONG Jiang-Ze, and LIN Wei-Hsiang. A number of exhibits are also marked as the foreign artists’ debuts in Taiwan. Since the gallery was built, it has been active in publishing literature and completed nearly 40 publications, including exhibition catalogues and the artist albums of Shi Jin-Hua, Juin Shieh, Tang Jo-Hung, Shinji Ohmaki, Marina Cruz, and Ana Maria Micu.
