Description

Siao-Long aims to foster international exchange with artists from around the world and thereby create a vibrant community of artists, both local and international, emerging and established. Resident artists will be living in close proximity to local craftsmen and artisans and they are encouraged to take the community and the vibrant local culture as inspiration for their artworks. Artists have access to wheelchair-accessible, air-conditioned, modern studio spaces, as well as galleries and theatres for exhibitions, workshops and performances.

AIR Theme for 2023: In 1624, the Dutch built Fort Zeelandia in AnPing, Tainan, resulting in Tainan being regarded as the first city to have been established in Taiwan. Thus, 2024 will be the 400th anniversary of Tainan becoming a city, and hence the theme for the coming year’s (2023) residency will be centered on buildings, living space, urban regeneration, industries and the development of the economy, among other subjects. Through visual art practice, the residency aims to examine, represent and re-consider the changes seen in Tainan during the past 400 years. In addition, it will explore people’s moving and migration around the globe owing to political or economic reasons, either through personal choice or because they were forced out, resulting in changes to the culture, the aesthetics, the ideologies and the living environments. The residency will visualize the changes seen in Tainan - and even across Taiwan as a whole - in the past, and will also anticipate the city’s - and the island’s - potential presence in the future.

Outcome

During the residency, the selected applicants should provide one type of presentation, such as an exhibition or a performance, and hold (at least) one session of the children-friendly workshop or one-day artist open studio.
Approaching the end of the residency, the successful applicants are required to complete a report and questionnaire. The report should include details of the residents’ experience, the progress of the project and any relevant feedback.

Studio Information

Placements of up to three months with free accommodation and studio space.
The village has professional wheelchair-accessible air-conditioned modern studio spaces, galleries and theatres for exhibitions, workshops and performances.

Accommodation Information

All selected artists can apply for accommodation; however, such accommodation is only for resident artists. To maintain the safety, living quality and rights of every single artist, the accommodation is not available for non-artists to stay overnight (including family members, assistants, partners or pets).

Location

Siao-Long Cultural Park is located in the Jiali district, on the northern outskirts of Tainan city. Jiali is a tranquil and leisurely small town with a laid-back lifestyle, located approximately 45 minutes drive from downtown Tainan. The park has evolved from the former Jiali Sugar Factory, where its revitalized Japanese-era sugar refinery warehouses have successfully merged historic architecture with modern design in an area that is itself rich in history, culture and agriculture. As a cultural stronghold for traditional performance and folk arts, the park has transformed itself into a modern art venue that promotes artistic growth.
