Zhengbin Harbour Museum of Art –Space Moor: Temporary Relocation Open Call

Zhengbin Harbour Museum Of Art, initiated and curated by Zhengbin Art Studio at Keelung Zhengbin Fishing Port since 2021. Beyond our engaging and thought-provoking annual exhibitions, we have taken a step further by establishing “Space Moor” as a physical base. We envision “Space Moor” not only acting as the headquarters of creativity, dedicated to showcasing the vibrant city of Keelung, but also serving as a permanent exhibition space and a beacon for young artists and creators to settle in through our open calls or direct invitations. Our open calls span Exhibition and Sales, Arts Residency, and Temporary Relocation, inviting a continual exploration, creation, and breakthrough. Welcome to the very first experimental art space in Keelung!

For our open call, except Exhibition & Sales ang Arts Residency, we are especially encouraging proposals that seek to connect with the essence of Keelung’s Harbour culture.

We hope that anyone who wants to come to Keelung, Zhengbin Fishing Port, or a strange place can use this channel to practice their imagination of a new life, which may be digital nomadism, an experimental creative action plan, second place residence, or school relocation. Earth teaching, research interviews, etc. We welcome any new possibilities that require a short stay here to trigger! We look forward to making returning home or staying somewhere no longer just a choice of starting a business/employment/marriage, but a more flexible, fluid and diverse choice. Come to Space Moor to meet, get to know and communicate together!

Here, you can escape from the daily work rhythm and life experience. We hope you will be braver to get closer to your heart's desires during this time and become what you want to be.

In the same place, work and live together !

The Space in Space Moor

In the spring of 2021, Space Moor was born, crafted from the ground up in the realms of spatial planning, design, and management to establish a distinct brand identity. We have revitalized a 60-year-old dwelling, transforming a former ship repair workshop into a multifaceted creative space of possibility. The term "moor" signifies the act of docking or mooring a vessel, encapsulating our aspiration for every creator to arrive as a ship does: returning full and rich, ready to unload their bounty to nourish both body and soul. We warmly welcome wandering vessels to find rest here, in this inspiringly luminous harbor, to muster the courage for new voyages. Space Moor is envisioned as the genesis of your next great endeavor.
