Stock 20 is a series of railway warehouse art studios behind the Taichung Train station where working artists have space to explore and speak to the public.
In typical Asia fashion… “The Art Network of the Railway Warehouses project began in 1997, where the Council for Cultural Affairs suggested the railway warehouses were tall, wide, and had spatial characteristics suitable for art display.” So “Asia Funny” yes?
Well, whatever the official Taiwan word is, it’s a pretty cool place to hang out and take your kids for an afternoon or evening. There are other warehouses, including ones in Hsinchu, Chiayi, Fangliao, Taitung, and Haulien. According to the Ministry of Culture, these “symbolize the growing artistic renaissance led by the ‘train engine.’” (I have no idea what that means)
