Located in Taipei City in a modest building at No. 7 Beiping East Road, Taipei Artist Village (TAV) stands quietly among other more magnificent structures, such as the Executive Yuan Building and the Taipei Revenue Service headquarters, often unnoticed by passersby. Nestled in its small, secluded yard with bamboo grove, TAV is an oasis in the urban environment.

Taipei Artist Village includes a dance rehearsal space, piano studio, darkroom and performance hall, supporting projects at various stages of development, including research, art creation, exhibitions and performances, by professional artists working in a variety of fields. There is also a multifunctional art and dining space, where visitors and residents can enjoy a meal, exchange ideas, display works, or purchase art or art-related products.

Taipei Artist Village was formerly the office building for the Department of Public Maintenance and Construction of the Taipei City Government, and later a temporary office for the Taipei Rapid Transit Corporation. After years of vacancy, in October 2001 the city government’s Department of Cultural Affairs decided to renovate the building. Based on artist villages in other international capitals such as New York, Paris and London, this once abandoned space was transformed into Taiwan’s first artist village, with a unique style all its own. In May 2003, the Department of Cultural Affairs conducted an open selection seeking a non-governmental organization to manage the Taipei Artist Village.

In October 2004, the management of TAV was officially handed over to the Taipei Culture Foundation, and it continues to be a center for creativity, reaching out to local residents as well as foreign artists through a variety of activities. With the establishment of the village’s artist-in-residence program, AIR Taipei enjoys a growing influence in Taiwan’s artistic circles as it provides a valuable experimental ground for the arts in Taiwan. AIR Taipei exists to promote multinational and cross-disciplinary collaboration, to promote the aesthetic life of Taipei’s people, and to spread the infinite possibilities of art to all corners of the world.
