Artists-in-Residence (AIR) 2020 > Tsung-Yeh Art and Culture Center (Taiwan)

Tsung-Yeh Art and Culture Center in Tainan City is the result of the fusion of an old sugar refinery with multicultural ideas to form a unique space. With years of effort, Tsung-Yeh Artist and Culture Center has established itself as a center for arts, crafts and culture while producing valuable creative works in Tainan. Through providing the working space and encouraging resident artists to communicate with the locals, the organisers hope to promote this historical site not simply as a place for exhibitions, but rather an important gathering site for international arts and artists.

Tsung-Yeh Art and Culture Center takes the concept of ‘Site-Specific Art’ as its theme for the AIR program in 2020. The artists should engage with Tainan and Madou locality’s natural and historical sites, and with local communities.
