Arcade Art Gallery
Art Gallery / Kaohsiung, Taiwan
美術館 / 台灣高雄
Founded in early 2016, director José Enrique Montes Hernandez took a leap of faith with this project. While visiting Kaohsiung, Taiwan in 2015, he found himself confronted with very few art galleries willing to represent his professional oeuvre of Pop Surrealism and Urban Art. While Taiwan is home to many respected artists, he felt their voice was not being heard outside of the island. Taiwan is internationally known for electronics and skilled industrial production, but few know about the artistic talent this country holds.
Arcade 美術館成立於2016年初，總監José Enrique Montes Hernandez對美術館的成立有足夠的信心。2015年來到高雄時，他發現這裡沒有什麼美術館，於是有了想自己成立一間的想法，希望可以把超現實主義和現代藝術的專業作品帶進來；雖然台灣有許多受人敬重的藝術家，但他覺得這些藝術家的名聲並沒有傳播到台灣以外的地方，台灣的電子業和技術純熟的工業為國際所知，但卻很少人知曉這個國家藝術方面的才能。
Established in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, Arcade Art Gallery focuses on representation of the Contemporary Art sector. Utilizing both gallery shows and public installations, Arcade Art Gallery showcases the work of Internationally renowned Artists, while also giving a voice to a new generation of promising Artists.
Arcade Art Gallery invites artist from all over the world to come and share their work in public installations and exhibitions, while also connecting local Taiwanese Artists with major Internationally located galleries.
In late 2016, Arcade Art Gallery curated a Street Art event for local company, The Wallriors. Thanks to Arcade, the city of Kaohsiung is now home to murals by internationally acclaimed Artists: OKUDA, SEN2, and SLIKS . The event was deemed a success, as locals found themselves looking at their city with a new perspective and suddenly recognizing it's many possibilities.
