Dadaocheng Museum Exhibition Opens to the Public

Dadaocheng Museum Exhibition Opens to the Public

The Dadaocheng Museum is holding a special exhibition at the PureRoom Gallery which opened to the public on December 2. The event will last through December 12.

To commemorate the 30-year anniversary of the movement calling for the preservation of Dadaocheng, the Urban Regeneration Office joined hands with Taipei’s urban walking tour groups in arranging the “Dadaocheng Museum.” The activity involves open house at over 50 private spaces in the neighborhood, allowing visitors to look beyond the exterior into the daily life of those who live and work in the community.

In addition to numerous moving stories and anecdotes, Dadaocheng has also seen its share of events and activities taking place in the neighborhood every day. However, have these occasions help to bring about changes and transitions for the community? What’s left for the district after the crowd disperses?

The exhibition proceeds to tell the story of the neighborhood with the first deity pilgrimage of Xiahai City God Temple in 1879. The showcase will also resurrect memories of Chinese New Year Street Bazaar, International Art Festival, and religious events in the neighborhood. Visitors will also have a chance to appreciate these events from the perspective of local residents and businesses.

The venue for the Dadaocheng Museum Exhibition is PureRoom Gallery (Address: No. 4, Lane 239, Nanjing W. Road, Datong District). For more information, please visit the Chinese Facebook fan page of Taipei Urban Walking Tours or contact URO by phone (TEL: 2781-5696, ext. 3119).
