Taipei Artist Village
Located in the city’s government office district, Taipei Artist Village (TAV) is a four-story building renovated as part of ongoing efforts to reutilize vacant spaces. Its function is not merely to exhibit artworks, but to be a point of convergence for artists. In addition to office spaces and three multifunctional exhibition halls, TAV features living quarters and studios for 13 artists, as well as a dance studio, piano room and dark room, providing a spectrum of uses for resident artists.
On the ground floor you will discover not only exhibition galleries, but also the Village Cafe, a music club with live performances of jazz and other varieties of music. Connected to the bar is a courtyard, serving as a meeting place for artists-in-residence and members of the local arts community. On the second and third floors are living quarters and studio spaces for 13 artists. Every year in spring and autumn, TAV hosts Open Studio events, in which the public is free to visit. On the roof are a conference room for artists and an open-air performance space.
