Lichuan (Emily) Wu has close to ten years of art administration experience in museum exhibitions that spanned non-profit organizations and private galleries. She joined the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts at the end of 2012 and switched gears from museum Exhibition Curating to the Education and Promotion Department. Influenced by principles of modern museum studies, she took on the challenge of setting up the first “Demonstration Area for Visually Impaired Audiences” in the Museum. In honouring equal rights for all demographics, she has since promoted accessible services and programs for visitors with disabilities. In 2017, Lichuan Wu proposed an overall “holistic and accessible” approach to museum programming, and in 2019, she combined education exhibitions with services for the visually impaired and universal design principles, and executed those visions in the exhibition contents, display facilities and educational events.
The National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts (NTMoFA) was founded in 1988 and is dedicated to the education and promotion of visual arts. It places great emphasis on collecting works by Taiwanese artists and exploring unique characteristics of modern and contemporary Taiwanese arts. Its aims are: to organize the most diverse range of themed visual art exhibitions, to foster long-term art exchanges with overseas institutions, to actively participate in major international events, to promote art education, and to provide the public with a pleasing and multi-faceted environment for viewing art.
