Since the establishment of Taipei Artist Village, “Barry Room” has witnessed numerous artists’ creative ideas nourished in Taipei; the newly opened “92 Art Center” in Grass Mountain Artist Village has presented stunning contemporary artworks by artists from Australia and New Zealand . Due to the small number of exhibiting spaces in Taipei and the financial difficulties that most artists encounter, the two galleries will call for innovative exhibition proposals with free space charge.
