There aren’t myriad absolutes in the pursuit of art, but what is certain are the joy, the happiness, the passion and perhaps even the zest for life that it continually awakens in its viewers. Within a space designed to reflect concurrent times as well as pay homage to the building’s history, we hope to present a Centre anchored by visual creativity, regional specificity and architectural framing.
The Kin-Ma Military Hostel, the previous incarnation of the ALIEN Art Centre, was built in 1967. The Cold War of the bygone century endows the edifice with a historical sentiment that continues to impact the lives of the Taiwanese people today. Many decades ago, tens of thousands of military personnel have passed through the Hostel on the eve of battle. Charged with vivid memories of the recent past, the site subsequently underwent its transformation starting in 2018 and has now assumed its new identity as the ALIEN Art Centre.
Buttressed by the principles of “exhibitions,” “projects,” “perspectives” and “design,” this is an experimental museum that champions art as dynamic and productive lifestyle. We gather artists, designers, curators and professionals in gastronomy and service, then devise wide-ranging projects that encourage dialogue between these disciplines. Out of the exchange of ideas will come the production and application of art as a means to assemble talents in order to foster a vibrant—and also sustainable—economy of aesthetics.
ALIEN Art Centre and Silks Club art and design is operated by ALIEN Art.
