See old meet­ing new in Taipei

HK Magazine - - TRAVEL -

The next time you spend a week­end in Tai­wan’s mod­ern me­trop­o­lis, take a break from pig­ging out at the night mar­kets and plan a day to ex­plore the art spa­ces that have been pop­ping up across the city.

The Tai­wanese govern­ment has been work­ing with artists for the past decade to gussy up aban­doned fac­to­ries and ware­houses into cre­ative spa­ces. Check out the Song­shan Cul­tural and Cre­ative

Park (133 Guangfu South Rd., Xinyi District, Taipei, www.song­shan­cul­tur­al­park.taipei), a new-meets-old arts hub re­in­sti­tuted from a de­funct to­bacco fac­tory in 2011. Per­ma­nent ex­hi­bi­tions in­clude a gallery show­cas­ing works by ar­ti­sanal glass­blow­ers Li­uli Gong­fang. Look out for spe­cial ex­hi­bi­tions too, which are usu­ally re­freshed ev­ery month.
