The Taichung World Floral Exposition begins on November 3rd, 2018 and ends on April 24th, 2019. Through the fragile beauty of flowers, the exposition aims to remind citizens of our innate connection to nature as well as the importance of environmental conservation. This event, certified by the International Association of Horticultural Producers (AIPH), is expected to bring many visitors to the Taichung area, in which our museum is also located at. The Asia University Museum of Modern Art lies in the heart of Taichung’s Wufeng District. In the west of Wufeng, the lands are plain and flat with fertile soil, perfect for agricultural grown; to its east are slopes suitable for growing fruit trees. Nick-named “Garden University”, Asia University is famous for its beautiful campus and landscape, where many flowers and trees bloom and flourish. Hence, the Asia University’s Museum of Modern Art would like to use its locality of agriculture to promote art in the theme of flowers relating to the Taichung World Floral Exposition. With the exhibition Language of Flowers, we aim to explore the fruitful links between art and nature through the different cultural and symbolic meanings that flowers represent.
