The Bamboo Curtain Studio (BCS) in Taiwan aims to promote cross-cultural exchanges by providing a meeting point for visitors from national and international art related fields, for short visits or specific projects.

BCS is member of Res Artis, initiator of Intra Asia Network for AIR & Artists’ mobility, regional representative of  International Network of Culture Diversity and Arts Network Asia, country representative for World Culture Forum Asia-Pacific. We could custom design the residency programme based on individual needs, such as visiting important exhibitions, performances, and to join in art community and cultural events.

My project at the Bamboo Curtain Studio was crucial in the development of my work. At the time it was one of the few places in Taiwan that was open and welcoming of installation projects. Due to the large scale of the exhibition space it gave me the opportunity to work in a scale that would later go on to define my work. --Michael Lin, 1998  

The Studio aims to assist in the further understanding and development of emerging art trends in Taiwan. It endeavors to promote cross-cultural exchanges by lifting barriers, and provides a creative environment for needed time, space and facilities for production, residencies on site, servicing artists in their research, testing and trial run of their products and services.

Principle Objectives:
The Studio was established to meet the shortage of working environment in four types of contemporary art:

1. Working space and equipment for ceramists, sculptors and mixed media artists.
2. Consultative, research and implementation services for arts related projects.
3. Production of site-specific arts in public spaces.
4. Space for experimentation and development of multi-media art.

Environment and Space
Our studio is situated along the bicycle path of the Tamsui riverbank. It is 10-minutes walking distance to the MRT ZhuWei Station, and about 30 minutes commute to downtown Taipei.

The BCS is a reused farm complex of 2,645 sq meter / 28,467 sq ft with five artists-in-residency rooms and studios; space for exhibition, multi functional performance; exchange center; ceramics & sculpture studio; community kitchen, and outdoor stage, plaza and gardens.
