The Yingge Ceramics Museum is a must-visit destination for anyone interested in the art of pottery. Located in New Taipei City, Taiwan, this museum is dedicated to preserving and promoting the history and culture of ceramics.
I was fortunate to have won the Gold Prize for my sculpture Anthropocene, at the 2016 Taiwan Ceramics Biennale, which allowed me to visit this incredible museum and spend 10 months working and traveling throughout Asia.
The museum’s collection includes over 20,000 pieces of pottery and ceramics from Taiwan, China, Japan, and Korea (and everywhere else). The exhibits showcase a range of styles, from traditional Chinese blue-and-white porcelain to modern art pieces. The museum’s collection also includes rare pieces that date back to the Ming and Qing dynasties, as well as contemporary works by Taiwanese and international artists.
One of the top resources at the museum is their extensive library, which has over 30,000 books and periodicals on ceramics, art history, and related subjects (It’s incredible). The museum’s website also offers online resources, such as virtual exhibitions and educational materials. Another great resource is their research center, which provides scholars and researchers with access to the museum’s collection and archives.
Overall, the Yingge Ceramics Museum is a wonderful resource for anyone interested in ceramics and pottery. Their collection is impressive and diverse, and their resources are valuable to scholars and enthusiasts alike. They also hold an incredible Biennial of ceramics every-other-year.
