An artist village is not a temple of high art – it is a forum rooted in real life. To put it more specifically, when you take up residence in an artist village, your line of sight will often shift between a local and an international viewpoint. Such a perspective slowly grows, buds and blossoms from daily life, as art and culture help the city achieve new heights and new substance. At the same time, the collective experience of this place awakens a sense of commonality through free and open exchange.
Pursuing the two major tasks of artist exchanges and a residency program, Taipei Artist Village and Treasure Hill Artist Village are building a multinational network through associative participation. This includes a significant infrastructure of connections including residencies, exhibitions, seminars, performances, publications, a website, and a Facebook presence. Both Taipei Artist Village, located in the heart of the city, and Treasure Hill Artist Village, nestled in a historical community, hope to provide an open space to Taiwanese artists, writers, critics and other individuals interested in art and culture, as well as non-profit organizations, national agencies and other international institutions – a space without national borders that transcends the restrictions and frameworks of regional cultures and political conditions, that creates free, open exchange from a higher vantage point.
