Taking the construction of international art and fine creations as the driving force, ALIEN Art is committed to presenting the contemporary vision of artists and designers, providing customers with art planning and consulting services, triggering every moment of art in your life, and the possibility of finding a more exciting life through art.

Currently, the spaces operated and planned by ALIEN Art include ALIEN Art Centre and SILKS CLUB. The ALIEN Art Centre was formerly known as the Kin-Ma Military Hostel. It was built in 1967 as a transit station for the National Army soldiers to Kinmen and the Matsu Front Line. With the end of the Cold War, the hostel also ended business in the late 1990s. In 2016, ALIEN Art took over the new mission and carried out new construction and re-operation. The two-year architectural organization and cultural and historical work have restored the architectural style of eclecticism and preserved the period with meaningful history. The Kin-Ma Military Hostel was re-launched as a contemporary art museum at the end of 2018, integrating the natural landscape of Shoushan forest, becoming the promise of contemporary art development in the city.

The planning aspects of ALIEN Art Centre include: (I) The curatorial works of contemporary vitality, exploring the infinite possibilities of artistic creation, and driving the energy of contemporary artistic creation; (II) Planning and introduction of Applied Art, exploring the artist’s original intention of creating life objects for enriching the joy of life; (III) Art re-discovery, leading the audience to understand the masters of art, their academic research and historical context. The planning of the special exhibition follows the updates of the exhibition schedule on the three floors of the museum, and there are also permanent exhibitions. On the second floor of the museum, there is a museum shop and ALIEN All-Day Lounge. It is also an excellent place to meet and exchange after viewing the exhibition. The open-air platform on the top floor can hold various performances.

In SILKS CLUB, ALIEN Art focuses on the integration of art and architectural space. According to the spatial environment planning, there are currently hundreds of works are curated in the public spaces and guest rooms of the hotel, including masterpieces by Olafur Eliasson and ART+COM. In addition, the Library Space on the first floor exhibits the ALIEN Art Selection project from time to time, while current exhibitions are planned in the Presidential Pavilion on the 29th floor.
