Art Bank Taiwan is a Ministry initiative that will assist the nation’s emerging young artists in receiving international exposure. 
First enacted in 2013, the initiative will:
  • Help finance emerging young artists. The Ministry has an annual budget of NT$70 million (US$2.4 million) dedicated to purchasing local art pieces of great potential. 
  • Introduce Taiwanese artworks to foreign audiences. By collaborating with the private sector, the Ministry has secured new exhibition spaces in corporate headquarters, overseas offices and hotel chains. 
  • Promote cultural diplomacy. The Ministry will loan or rent art pieces to governmental agencies as well as the nation’s embassies and cultural offices around the world. 
 
Partnerships
  • To disseminate Taiwan’s culture through public spaces and diplomatic networks, the Ministry is working in partnership with the Ministry of Transportation and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. 
  • The clients of the Art Bank are primarily Taiwan-based corporations that seek to support the arts through philanthropic assistance. 
  • A digital collection of works by Taiwan’s emerging young artists is maintained by the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, a subordinate organization of the Ministry.
 
Leasing Opportunities
​The collection, which can be viewed by visiting the project headquarters in Taichung or by browsing its digital database, is open to non-Taiwan corporations and agencies as well. The current works available for leasing range from graphic paintings, photography, and video art, to sculptures and mixed-media creations.
