Previously the Taipei Government City Hall, this building is now designated as an historic site, and has been refurbished for the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA Taipei). The building reopened on 26 May 2001. Since then, it has become a new landmark on the city’s culture map. It is an example of the redevelopment of old spaces while promoting art and culture in the communities. MOCA Taipei exemplifies a perfect combination of contemporary art, historical architecture, and technology, thanks to the joint efforts of Taipei City Government, the local community, artists, and the business world. Besides displaying contemporary art in new and usual media within a beautiful historical setting, it will bring innovation into Taipei and art into the community.

The goal of the Museum’s collection focuses on acquiring representative, creative, and outstanding works by significant local and overseas artists. The collection includes works from the beginning of the twentieth century, alongside artworks from the nineteenth century. We wish to continue the collection system of Chinese art where the National Palace Museum has left off in collecting Chinese antiques. Our collection is characterized by the art history of Taiwan and its modern features.
