General Information

Located in southern Taiwan, Kaohsiung is Taiwan’s second largest city. Once an industrial hub, the harbor city is a gateway to international trade and is known for its diversity, vitality, and hospitality.

Pier-2 Art Center, situated in a dock in No. 3 ship canal of the Kaohsiung Harbor, used to be a harbor warehouse built in 1973. In 2000, looking for a suitable location for setting off fireworks on National Day, the Kaohsiung City Government realized that the dock was an ideal place for holding various events. In recent years, Pier-2 Art Center has become a venue for exhibitions and performances. They include: Delight of Chinese Character Festival, Kaohsiung Design Festival, Kaohsiung International Steel & Iron Sculpture Festival, Kaohsiung International Container Arts Festival, Megaport Festival, Rainbow Bay Festival, and Experimental Theatre Festival.

Pier-2 Art Center is not only a unique artistic and culture institution in Kaohsiung; it is also a popular, multi-purpose recreational area with tons of open space.

As an international art platform in Taiwan, Pier-2 Art Center positions itself as a hub that values the avant-garde, experiment, and originality. Over the years, the two warehouses in early stages of development have grown into large complexes with a total of 25 warehouses, including Dayong Warehouse, Penglai Warehouse and Dayi Warehouse. Besides holding art exhibitions and performances, there is also space designated for experimental theater performances and small-scale pop music concerts. Artists are also invited to participate in the artist-in-residence program.

About Residency

In early years, the Taiwan Sugar Corporation stored sugar and fishmeal at Dayi Warehouse. As the sugar industry transformed, the warehouse was later leased to ship-breakers as a workplace. It was not until 2012 when Dayi Warehouse became part of the Pier-2 Art Center following efforts of the Kaohsiung City Government. The old warehouse is nearly six-meters high, which is a unique feature. The warehouse mainly provides the innovative cultural industry with a space for artistic creations, R&D, and services. The space also allows them to cooperate with different sectors or engage in interdisciplinary programs.

Under the artist-in-residence program introduced by the Pier-2 Art Center, part of Dayi Warehouse is designated for resident artists or artistic groups. This includes a 33 square meter studio with a bathroom and a 17 square meter attic that can be used as a living room. As the Pier-2 Art Center is aimed at promoting artistic and cultural exchanges, the vitality to be brought by resident artists will further secure the center’s role as a cultural platform for exhibitions and performing arts. In the future, there will be five studios with a living space as well as a lounge. The multi-purpose lounge can be used for entertaining guests, holding seminars and meetings or other administrative purposes. The lounge also has cooking and dining space.
