Tom Herzner, 30, is the hair stylist for men in Berlin. He's attractive, glamorous, runs a posh
salon and is an openly gay celebrity who is seen as a role model for the gay community. But
when he plans his first hair-product line, the cosmetic company rep gets jittery: he feels that
just targeting men is too restrictive. What about women? To get an idea of what women
want, Tom is forced to work incognito at a hair salon-cum-barber-shop somewhere in an edgy
Berlin neighborhood run by the sassy, gut-honest Heidi.

This simple romantic tragedy begins in 1957. Guy, a 20-year-old French
auto mechanic, has fallen in love with 17-year-old Geneviève, an employee
in her widowed mother's chic but financially embattled umbrella shop. On
the evening before Guy is to leave for war in Algeria, he and Geneviève
make love. She becomes pregnant and must choose between waiting for
Guy's return and accepting an offer of marriage from a wealthy diamond
merchant. A completely sung movie, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg is closest
in form to a cinematic opera. Composer Michel Legrand composed the
score, modeling it around the patterns of everyday conversation.

The film begins and ends at the ruins of a Kyoto gate in 8th-century Japan.
A priest, a woodcutter, and a peasant take shelter from a pouring rain
under the ruins of the Rashomon gate. They discuss the latest news -- a
bandit's trial and execution for rape and murder. Through the course of
the trial, the events are related from the points of view of the rape victim,
the bandit, and even the ghost of the murdered man, resurrected for the
occasion by a medium. Each of the travelers has a different version of the
crime -- and each is telling the "truth," so far as they understand the truth.

The story of Hansel and Gretel and the witch who eats children
is a thing of the past; in "The Witches' Candy House," witches
are no longer after children but rather the delicacies that the
world has to offer. Together, the witches seize the opportunity

the princess. For this latest performance, the Counterpoint
Ensemble specially selected the music by F. Mendelssohn and
invited Austrian composer and bassist Hans Kustovny to adapt

"Garage d'Or" is a humorous, satirical performance that vividly
portrays the mental state of a modern-day middle-aged man
whose family standing is in peril and who is at a state of
panic because of the imminent change to come following
the birth of a child. The fascinating performance, flawlessly

Media is Everything—Art of Lu Ming-te
Lu stresses that, in this era of information media, the force of media is something that cannot
be ignored. Looking back at the development of Western art, starting from Dadaism and Pop
Art to the artists’ embrace of found objects and mass media, Lu predicted back in 1998 that
such a transition would have a significant influence on Taiwan’s art development in the future.
His prediction seemed to have served as a trailblazer, providing guidance for the mainstream
trends of Taiwan’s art development in the following two or three decades. From this exhibition,
comprising the four main themes of Media Expansion, Environmental Installation,
Encounter with Technology, and Cultural Mimicry, viewers can see how Lu has been
adhering to his core concept and continuing with his artistic creation through dialogues with,
conversion, citation and/or juxtaposition of different media and materials to reveal their existing
value systems.

Kaohsiung Awards 2015
The 2015 Kaohsiung Awards Competition received works submitted by approximately 600 artists around Taiwan. After careful
selection and discussion among the judges, totally five winners of the Kaohsiung Awards, eight winners of the Excellent Work
Awards, and three winners of the Observer Awards were decided along with the other works selected for the Kaohsiung
Awards Exhibition this year. In addition, thanks to the support from the HCS Calligraphy Foundation, the Kaohsiung Awards
Competition also started to offer the “HCS Special Award for Calligraphy/Sealengraving Works” this year. Because all the past winners of the Kaohsiung Awards
are now active in the art field as emerging artists at home or even abroad, the
Competition has been seen as an important touchstone and milestone of career
development for many aspiring artists. With all the talented artists competing against
one another for the highest honor each year, the Kaohsiung Awards Competition and
its exhibition have become an exciting center of attention for many members of the
art world not only from Taiwan but also from other countries.

The egg is a symbol of life, a seed of life, or a carrier of life. It is also a carrier of immense imagination. To celebrate its 10th
anniversary, the Children’s Museum of the Arts holds this exhibition, Birth Day: Breaking Out of the Egg, to not only glorify
the meanings and values of life but also inspire children to have different imaginations and interpretations of the egg through
the works created by the participating artists. It is hoped that through this exhibition, children can learn how to discover
extraordinary things from the ordinary in daily life through imagination and association, as well as know how to better express
their own feelings and thoughts, and explore different possibilities through their sensory experiences and learning.

Life Diaries – Kaohsiung in Diaries
A diary is a daily record, an intimacy of personal memory. It is meaningful because it records one’s
present moment's matters. It is significant because it contains an extensive series of data. The
diaries that are exhibited in this exhibition are the treasures from the digital archive of the Institute
of Taiwan History of Academia Sinica. A section "Kaohsiung in Diaries" was especially designed
which exclusively collects diarists' writings about Kaohsiung. The Museum hopes visitors can
relate to today's Kaohsiung what the diarists' impressions were of Kaohsiung.

Beginning on 8/14/2014 ■Special Exhibition Room
3/27-5/3 ■Penglai Warehouse B6
On July 31, 2014 at 23:56 a series of petrochemical gas explosions took place in Kaohsiung's bustling city center. Kaohsiung
Pictorial impels us to ponder: what Kaohsiung Pictorial had exposed were Kaohsiung City's 35 years of official historical
records until the development of today's green energy, creative and cultural, tourism, and convention and exhibition
industries that accommodate today’s liveable city's demands; what Kaohsiung Pictorial didn't show was the silent sadness
of Kaohsiung for being a heavy industry city of Taiwan. Therefore, contemplating what we see and what we don't see in
the contents of Kaohsiung Pictorial, who we are, where we were, and where we are going is the profound significance of
“Kaohsiung Pictorial – Talking about Kaohsiung” which is organized by the Kaohsiung Museum of History.

Presentation Concert by the

Junior High School
In 2010, the KMFA held the One Is Everything: 50 Years of Works by Richard Lin exhibition,
giving local viewers a comprehensive introduction to Richard Lin, a master of modernism
who was born in Taiwan, moved abroad, and engaged actively in artistic creation across
different fields of both Eastern and Western art. Regrettably, Lin passed away in 2011 and
Ms. Yan Siao-liang, his wife, decided to donate a generous quantity of his works to the
KMFA. Three years after Lin’s passing, the KMFA holds this exhibition, displaying mostly
the works from Ms. Yan’s donations and several works borrowed from other art institutions.
It is hoped that, through this exhibition, the public can appreciate again the works of an art
master who has left the world and also appreciate the timeless values of art.

Taiwan, a beautiful island on the circum-Pacific island arc, attracted missionaries and scholars from the West hundreds of years
ago, later became home to people migrating out of China after WWII, and then received people migrating from countries south of it
during its economic take-off. Nowadays, more and more people in Taiwan have emigrated or are emigrating to other places on the
world map amidst the trend of globalization. There is no telling now which place is the place
of origin and which is a foreign place for people originally living in Taiwan and for those from
other countries. Through the imagination of “traveling” and “ocean,” this exhibition creates for
viewers imaginative experiences of landing onshore in the south of Taiwan after a seaborne
voyage. The works in this exhibition are mostly the contemporary works collected by KMFA.
In this exhibition, viewers can be temporarily released from the positions as “spectators” or
“local people” and put themselves into the shoes of “foreigners”, appreciating the stories
about “here” and “there”, about different people immigrating into or emigrating out of this

The “Art Show Series” with the

Factory in the Divine Mountains
Chiu-Ter Chiu has been persistently working with glass for over twenty years, fascinated by the
unique beauty in the plasticity and crystal clear quality of glass, Chiu’s research focuses on the artistic
presentation of glass, as well as exploring the mysterious and beautiful charm of glass as a material.
Presenting forms and expressions from continuous melting and seizing experiment performed at high
temperature; from the deconstruction of shape and color, seeking out new imagery and emotions
that develops on the traditional style, using abstract art forms to express the inner feelings and
contemplates the encounter of ideas. Chiu’s inspiration originates from an intuitive feel for the beauty
and harmony of nature, so themes and concepts of Chiu’s work are often based on the response to life
experiences and emotions, hoping to create a new artistic expression and context.

François Grimbert grows up in Paris in the 1950s. He is the skinny, sickly son of two marvelously
athletic parents. For a while, he dreams of a stronger, fitter, more charismatic older brother to
compensate for his own feelings of inadequacy. Only gradually does he learn of his parents'
tragic past and that he has a sibling — a half-brother named Simon, his father's first son. Simon
is the big secret, but the discovery opens the door to further revelations and deeper enigmas.
François knows that his parents met sometime around the war, and he imagines their courtship
and marriage in the shadow of atrocities which nobody talks about any more.
