"How to make 'learning' more relevant to real life?" Centering around this question, the exhibition reexamines the 41 school partnership projects developed by the NTCAM during the preparatory period (2019-2021), proposing a unique concept known as the "Trilateral Relationship" among art teachers, artists, and students.
Within this unique relationship, students, artists, and art teachers engaged in shared learning while collaborating on art creation. Teaching and learning thus became more than just knowledge transfer and created a shared world in the art courses. However, this challenged how students, artists, and art teachers transformed their abstract knowledge or experiences into heartfelt communication and cooperation. The empathy cultivated in the process anchored all three parties in the present moment, focusing on listening, dialogue, and observation, thereby fostering a more conscious way of living and an approach to learning related to everyday experiences.
Along with a series of encounters and transformations, the school partnership projects over the three years have not only forged unique connections but also formed a new type of learning community between the museum and the schools through art.
With sharing by students, artists, and art teachers, as well as the presentation of 10 selected lesson plans for students of different ages, the exhibition depicts the varied landscapes of learning. It aims to inspire greater experimentation in both art and education through exchanges of experiences.
1. Before We Met
Visitors are invited to contemplate what challenges art teachers, artists, and students face in the unique context of the present day.
2. The Birth of the New Triangle
Students, artists, and art teachers share first-hand experiences in the school partnership projects, shedding light on how the “Trilateral Relationship” was born.
3. Give Me a Triangle, I Can ______!
Through the development process and results of ten selected lesson plans, the learning about the self, technology, and ecology in the “Trilateral Relationship” gradually unfolds.
4. Shapes of the Future
Along with the project reports and documentary videos, visitors of all ages are invited to participate in the relay creation of “sketching with imagination” by using simple circular stickers to outline the diverse shapes of the future.
There will be 2 talks and 3 workshops held alongside the exhibition. The above events will be conducted in Mandarin. Please refer to the Chinese version for more details.
