Polymer Art Space is an artist-run studio in Beitou, operated and managed by a group of artist, filmmakers, musicians and other related creative fields. Polymer composed of 20 studios, a nearly 200 ping (approximately 660 square meters) exhibition space, a communal lounge area as well as a 600 ping rooftop space for all kinds of activities and uses.

It opened to the public in 2013; the factory was initially a textile factory that had been vacant for years. A dozen or so artists build everything from scratch, transforming a vast, run-down space into an artists’ space.

The majority of the tenants are 30-something young artists and administrative decisions are mostly made by a team of core members. Polymer’s concept emphasis on collaboration among people from different fields. It’s also a platform for exhibitions, international exchanges, and academic discussions.

There’s a great sense of freedom in Polymer; the desire to know and work with each other is the main reason to have a large communal area and regular open studio events. By working on different programs, Polymer encourages visitor participation, too.
