Parkett – 220 Artists’ Editions & Collaborations +5
“The collaborative work between Parkett and over 220 contemporary artists from around the world is on view in a major survey show at TFAM in Taipei, accompanied by a new fully illustrated catalogue in traditional Chinese and English. Parkett stands out from other art magazines with its emphasis on collaborating with artists in developing a direct platform for artistic dialogues. All works made by artists for Parkett since 1984 are presented in themed “everyday spaces” including Studio, Playroom, Wardrobe, Garden, City, Reading Room, and Meeting Room.
+5 Meeting Room:
5 special collaborations from Taiwan and the region
Continuing with Parkett‘s spirit of artist-institution cooperations, five special projects co-produced by Taiwanese and Japanese institutions and artists are also on view at TFAM. These local projects echo Parkett‘s accomplishment over the last three decades and includeTaiwan’s The Cube, ARTCO Magazine, Taipei Contemporary Art Center, TSAI Charwei, artist and editor of Lovely Daze magazine, and Japan’s TeamLab.”

INSIDE A BOOK A HOUSE OF GOLD: Artists' Editions for Parkett
“As the title of this exhibition, we have chosen a line from the most artistic of Chinese emperors, Song Zhenzong (968-1022 CE). The connection of this maxim to the display at hand should be obvious: the “house” is three exhibition areas of the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, thematically transformed along the spatial conceit of a residence; the “book” is the great art magazine Parkett, founded in Zurich in 1984, and an engine of artistic thought and practice ever since; and the “gold” consists of 212 works by 192 artists, created in collaboration with the makers of Parkett throughout the long course of its existence.”

200 Artworks – 25 Years, Artists’ Editions for Parkett.
“If you want to see the entire forest, in terms of contemporary art, instead of staring at small trees, this exhibition would be a fitting choice. While blockbuster exhibitions usually focus on a single artist or group, the exhibition showcases 200 artworks by 185 world-renowned artists ... naturally offering a wrap up of contemporary art at a glance.”

Special Parkett issue with 15 selected texts translated into Chinese (print run: 160’000 copies, sold out)
“I consider it as the highest evaluation of the media people that they have protected the initial vitality of other people… Parkett has included almost all the most important artists and critics in a quarter of the century; ... we hope that it will enlighten many more Chinese readers. ... How much we envy a medium that needs no attitude!”

Parkett Viewing Room with permanent Study Center of all editions and publications (opened September 2010)
"The collection allows the University to present a dynamic, lively museum in full dialogue with the main centers of contemporary art in Spain. Together with the artworks, the Faculty also displays all Parkett volumes published since 1984, and in doing so fully reflects Parkett's unique character as a small museum and large library. 'The scholarly and teaching character of this collection is very significant' concludes the Faculty's vice dean."
