As a cluster of old warehouses next to Kaohsiung Harbor, Pier-2 Art Center positions itself as an artistic, diverse, experimental, creative space which is open to any kind of possibilities. It is a cross-domain art center which includes visual art, music, drama, culture and creativity, film, and entertainment. So far, Pier-2 Art Center is the most iconic modern art stage in Southern Taiwan and is devoted to cultivation of potential artists and designers.
Following the tradition of the past industries such as commercial harbor, iron and steel, shipbuilding, Pier-2 Art Center holds activities related to these industries’ characteristics in recent years. For example, Kaohsiung International Iron and Steel Sculpture Festival, on-the-spot drift wood sculpturing workshop, Kaohsiung International Container Arts Festival, etc. all use the local environment, humanistic quality, and historical patterns to convey certain issues.
