Wander through old artistic complexes in Taipei

The “art parks” in Taiwan’s capital are proof that art need not be constrained to staid and stuffy galleries. Take Huashan 1914 Creative Park. This century-old complex – formerly a Japanese colonial-era winery – now regularly hosts large-scale exhibitions and installations, in addition to hipster cafés and design stores. Over at Xinyi district, the grounds of a former tobacco factory are now home to Songshan Cultural and Creative Park, one of the largest arts spaces in Taipei. Here, you’ll find Eslite Spectrum, a multi-storey complex housing the Eslite bookstore, a vinyl store and indie shops where visitors can pick up a piece of art for their homes.
