Soulangh Artist Village has been transformed from the old Jiali Sugar Refinery. In 2016, site-specific art will be the theme of Soulangh. We encourage artist to explore their practice within local community and natural context. They can create projects at any sites in Soulangh, such as the warehouses, lawns, outdoor installations, railway tracks, or Children’s Museum of Art. Artists who are enthusiastic about community engagement and art education for children are welcome to apply for the residency within the subject of “site-specific art”.
Tsung Yeh Artist Village, inheriting the exquisite Japanese architecture from the old sugar refinery, presents a stage for the aesthetics of crafts. We encourage artists to immerse themselves into the cultural environment to learn folk religions, traditional crafts, local history, and the industrial development. They can interact with local people or share their experiences in the adjacent art schools. Tsung Yeh Artist Village has launched open call for 2016 AIR to select artists who work with metal, glass, wood, pottery, handicraft, cultural creative artworks, or installations.
Both Soulangh and Tsung Yeh Villages provide guest artists with free accommodations, working studios, networking to international art scene, and 30,000 NTD covering living expenses and implementation of projects per month at maximum. We fully support resident artists to realize their projects and also emphasize multi-layered cultural exchanges between international and local artists.
