Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts

  • Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts

Establishment Purpose

  • The Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts (KMFA) is located in the Neiweipi Cultural Park, the original area of the Neiweipi Wetland, at the northwestern corner of Kaohsiung City. The Love River runs through this area with Mt. Guishan and Mt. Banpingshan in the north and north-south running Mt. Shoushan in the west, forming a scenic landscape embraced by mountains and rivers. Occupying an area of 40 hectares, the Neiweipi Cultural Park covers the area bordered by Meishu East 2nd Road, Meishuguan Road, Makadao Road, and Mingcheng 4th Road. Integrating cultural landscapes with natural ecology, in addition to the main structure KMFA, the cultural park is equipped with the Children's Museum of Art, the Sculpture Park, the Ecology Park and the Austronesian Cultural Area, offering citizens a multifunctional living park featuring art, culture, leisure, natural ecology and education. Surrounding the perimeters of the KMFA, the alluring trail of Madagascar almonds is recognized as the most beautiful footpath in Kaohsiung. The park’s mesmerizing lake embodies the wetland’s original ecosystem. With terrain diversity, ecological engineering, and visitor-habitat separation, the ecological conservation in the park has been a success, attracting innumerous precious wildfowls transiting or settling down here and forming a lively park of eco-diversity. Moreover, 37 sculptures stand silently amidst the park’s natural environs, revealing changing looks and features at different times of the day. The distinctive Austronesian artworks and feature plants in the park form a cultural site, which originates from the Austronesian Contemporary Art Development Project hosted by the KMFA for many years and demonstrates the uniqueness of Taiwan as the origin of Austronesian cultural lineage. In the future, Kaohsiung City's overall urban planning will bring to the KMFA Park major transportation improvements, including the Museum of Fine Arts Station from the Underground Railway Project and the light rail transit system, and an expectable increase in tourists. Alongside the expanding urban greenways and leisure facilities, the park will become the most exuberant and lively "lungs of the city" in northern urban Kaohsiung. The KMFA is expected to become the crucial interface that integrates and fuses new and old communities and revitalizes and increases the overall value of the area and its further development. At this decisive moment of reformation, the KMFA team will adopt comprehensive management to transform the entire park and museum into a site of new lifestyle that integrates art, education, nature, and leisure life. The KMFA will also incorporate more creative elements of contemporary art, architecture, design and community development to broaden the public’s horizon and introduce more opportunities for carrying out dialogues between Kaohsiung and the world.

Department Introduction

As an integrated museum of fine arts, the KMFA collects important local artworks to develop the museum into “a museum of the development of fine arts history in Taiwan” through introducing international art activities and presenting the style of regional fine arts development. By developing self-esteem from the confidence in collating regional culture and art, the KMFA demonstrates the research, collection, exhibition, education and promotion functions of a fine arts museum. In addition, the KMFA spares no efforts to operate the Neiweipi Culture Park to create an integrated leisure park integrating art, culture, natural ecology and education. Despite the limited financial and human resources, the KMFA spares no efforts to strive for cooperation with world-leading art museums and art foundations worldwide every year to introduce classic works of important schools and art maestros and systematically organize theme exhibitions to enrich the aesthetics literacy and broaden the global art horizon of the public. Apart from prioritizing “first in Taiwan,” “cross-sector” and “reciprocal” projects through pro-active planning, joint preparation and independent organization, the KMFA actively develops the organization and utilization of materials of fine arts history in Taiwan and Kaohsiung to progressively establish a rich collection. With the invaluable intangible assets accumulated over time, smart use of limited resources and the need for capacity enhancement and scope expansion, the KMFA will expand its operation capacity and innovate the culture park with the rich exchange outcomes accumulated over the past 24 years and the museum’s expert team to improve living quality and space for the public and equip Kaohsiung with the elements for an international cultural city.
