In recent years, there has been more and more special exhibitions held in Taiwan and French, and the personal visits to the exhibitions has evoked the author to conduct a research study on the following subjects in this thesis --- the developmental process of museum cultural mechanism, the way how special exhibitions are communicated in different countries, and the effects of museum exhibitions.
The theory of museology as well as the organization and managements of a museum is discussed at the first part of the thesis. Investigating the differences of museum systems between Taiwan and France, including the control mechanism toward museums from both the central and local government authorities and from official and unofficial organizations is the subsequent idea revealed in this these. Furthermore, the case studies, the third part of this research, of “From Poussin until Cézanne: 300 years of French painting”, “Matisse exhibition”, “The ancient Egyptian art form Louver” and “The modern life. Paris 1925-1937” elicit our comprehensible understanding toward the background information, the mechanism and the effects of exhibitions. Finally, this thesis is concluded by discussing the following ideas related to an exhibition --- the methods of formulating the mechanism, the values of the educational implications, and the effects on management and economy of exhibition communications. As a consequence, the results of this research might be applied as a reference in the further studies in areas of international culture communications and communications among museum exhibitions.
This thesis is a pilot research on the fields of museology, the administration of museum, and the communication of exhibitions so that readers would get a slight understanding toward the mechanism of museums and the formulations of exhibitions. The final purpose of this study is to gain a clear picture of museum operations, in order to build upon the previous professional knowledge and experiences of the author.
