Once upon a time, humans sailed across the surging ocean, traveling, along the ocean currents, to far-away lands. From the migration of the Austronesians to the adventures in the Age of Exploration, these voyages generated countless cultural encounters and collisions, which have contributed to making the world we know today. Now, a new wave is rising again; notably, the COVID-19 pandemic has been raging from 2020 to 2021. While the tide of globalization used to make our communications more frequent, nowadays, we are no longer a network in which everyone is free to contact one another; instead, we have done everything within our powers to become an island, isolated from one another.

In the meantime, Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts (KMFA) is ready to present “Pan-Austro-Nesian Arts Festival”: the deepest and most contrasting exhibition in the age of the pandemic. The meaning of each word in “Pan-Austro-Nesian” is:

Pan ─ expansive, all-inclusive visions that transcend boundaries.
Austro ─ plural, non-center-constrained perspectives.
Nesian ─ multilateral oceanic connections.
