Since its launch in 2008, the Taiwan International Video Art Exhibition staged by Chew’s Culture Foundation has won great credit from video artists throughout the world. The first year exhibition Dwelling Place has received 121 projects by 100 artists from twenty-one countries. In 2010, the exhibition Eattopia has gathered 115 projects by 100 artists from twenty-seven countries. In 2012, the exhibition Melancholy in Progress has collected 217 projects from 169 artists.
With all the credit received, the 4th Taiwan International Video Art Exhibition is themed with The Return of Ghosts, for contemporary video possesses the characteristics of phantom. In the contexts of contemporary post-colonialism and capitalization, we encourage the artists to explore the issues related to spirits, ancestral deity, Shamanism, super nature or even the ghost-like existence of video itself.
The foundation is calling for video art projects regarding this topic; the deadline for submission is April/30/2014.
- Entries are restricted to artworks created after the year 2009, and are limited to unpublished works that have not been previously shown in any exhibitions in Taiwan.

In the contexts of contemporary post-colonialism and capitalization, we encourage the artists to explore the issues related to spirits, ancestral deity, Shamanism, super nature or even the ghost-like existence of moving images itself.
