‘Life abounds a day beyond eternity’ — ALIEN Art
ALIEN’s initiative is to create a new condition that merge art to life application. Its identity is a door through which people connected and transformed; performing the classic of contemporary, reflecting its core spirit: ‘life abounds a day beyond eternity’.

ALIEN Art Centre
On November 28th 2018, ALIEN opened a contemporary art museum, ALIEN Art Centre. The Centre was built in 1967 as a transit station for the National Army soldiers to Kinmen and the Matsu Front Line. By the end of the Cold War, the hostel was left in the late 1990s. In 2016, ALIEN Art took over the new mission and carried out renovation and history investigation for two year, restoring the architectural style of eclecticism and preserved the meaningful history. The Kin-Ma Military Hostel was re-launched as ALIEN Art Centre since November 2018, transforming into the cradle of the contemporary art form in the modern time. ALIEN commemorates the roots of architecture with a perspective that reflects the times, with its faith believing art is an experience of ‘visual creation’, ‘locality’ and ‘architectural space’.

ALIEN Art’s cultural field includes: Museum Operation, Artistic Content Operation and Investment.
