DESCRIPTION

Established in September 1988, IT Park Gallery (hereafter called IT Park) recently celebrated its 25 years. 

Over the years, professionals or art goers familiar with contemporary art in Taiwan have grown accustomed to defining IT Park as an “alternative space.” This has mainly been used to distinguish the space from more well-known non-profit making art museums or commercially oriented galleries. What should be noted is that IT Park was originally established by a group of like-minded young artists. Where “IT Park” differed from other renowned commune-like or artists’ association-like alternative spaces, was in its determination not to adopt a membership-based fee paying system. Precisely because IT Park chose to operate independently and retain an open attitude to the art world, it is now affectionately known as The Park by the local art community.
