In the space of just one newly renovated wing, the National Taiwan Museum is attempting to do something difficult—present the history and culture of Taiwan through a relatively small number of objects. We’re not exactly big geographically or in terms of our population, but there is a lot to cover— dozens of cultural groups plus centuries of recorded history. It doesn’t help that the museum’s collection is huge, and only two or three items can stand in for a whole period or an entire people. Still, the museum has done pulled it off, sketching a complete picture of how Taiwan as we know it came to be. Today, museum curator Li Tzu-ning is here to give us an overview of what the museum decided to do for this, its latest long-term exhibit.
