Taiwan Museum of Contemporary Art

"Pop" Culture in the Year of the Dragon

At some point around lunchtime in our walkabout of the river district hunger took over.  Our next planned stop was at the Museum of Contemporary Art.  We took a cab there, had lunch in their snack bar, and then walked through the two-story building looking at the exhibits.  The beautiful old building was built in 1921 and originally served at the Taipei City Hall.

I got a few pictures of the outdoor exhibits, including some fanciful dragons constructed of plastic drink bottles and held aloft by wires, but my picture-taking inside ended the first time my camera's flash went off.  That was a definite no-no.  One of the indoor exhibits was a large photo and video collection from the Australian Outback.  It was very well done and highly interesting.

It's the heels that really make the outfit!
