Our open calls span Exhibition and Sales, Arts Residency, inviting a continual exploration, creation, and breakthrough. Welcome to the very first experimental art space in Keelung!


For our open call, we are especially encouraging proposals that seek to connect with the essence of Keelung’s Harbour culture.

Anticipating collaborations that foster encounters, interaction, and exchanges with both Zhengbin Art Studio and the city of Keelung itself at Space Moor.


Here at Space Moor, you are invited to experience a creative journey with a refreshing change of vibe, to freely utilize the exhibition space for showcase and sale. You can also enhance the visibility and marketing exposure with the support of Zhengbin Art Studio’s promotion platform. Beyond the pleasure of a refreshing voyage and the nourishment of creation, our hope is that your time here will propel you towards the future, weaving your memories and creativity with the city into the tapestry of this vibrant community.

6. Additional Notes


  1. As Space Moor thrives in harmony with local businesses and is not a completely independent space (connected to the B1 Brownie store, “Walking Island"), we strongly encourage prospective applicants to conduct an on-site visit for assessment before applying. We warmly welcome you to schedule a visit with us, during which a dedicated guide will lead you. For those unable to visit in person, an online meeting can be arranged for confirmation and understanding.

  2. Exhibitions must be planned for complete calendar months, from the beginning to the end of the month (e.g., 9/1-9/3 for setup, 9/4-9/28 for the exhibition, 9/29-9/30 for takedown). The residency/temporary relocation programs offer flexible duration options, allowing applicants to choose any period between 1 to 3 months.

  3. Apart from our team's documentation, residents are required to provide materials such as process photos, visual records, and main visual posters for promotional purposes to enhance visibility.

  4. Throughout the duration of the residency, the responsibility for the protection and compensation of both tangible assets (including but not limited to personal items, creative works, productive machinery, and equipment) and intangible assets (such as software, reputation, or intellectual property rights) rests solely with the residents. The management does not assume liability for these possessions.

  5. Successful applicants will receive a notification letter and a contract, signing an advance agreement to solidify the residency terms. This agreement is fundamental in ensuring the mutual fulfillment of rights and obligations by both parties. It is important to note that should an individual be unable to complete the residency due to personal circumstances, the policy does not permit refunds. However, arrangements can be made to defer or transfer the residency(with approval), accommodating unforeseen needs.

  6. Payments will be split into two installments (first installment: upon selection and contract signing, second installment: after successful move-in), with a NT$ 3,000 security deposit due within five days of residency commencement for performance bond. This deposit will be refunded post-residency, provided no damages occur to the facilities.

  7. Without authorization, residents may not sublet the space to third parties under any circumstances.

  8. The programs also welcome international applicants, field trips, international cultural exchanges, and project collaboration inquiries.

  9. For long-term residency ideas (i.e., living in two places) or other exhibition collaborations extending beyond three months, feel free to contact us by email or phone.

  10. In accordance with Personal Information Protection Act, relevant applicant information is used solely for residency recruitment purposes.

  11. Our team also offers consignment services through our carefully curated selection store. For those unable to personally sell their items on-site during the exhibition period, we invite you to explore the consignment opportunities at our selection lounge. For more information, please visit https://forms.gle/GXCef9yZHsc6LBiE7

  12. Should there be any significant violations of the program rules or failure to execute the project as planned, Zhengbin Art Studio reserves the right to cancel the residency qualification.

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.
